Jane Grigson TRUST Award 2017
Vicky Hayward, translator and author of New Art of Cookery, A Spanish Friar’s Kitchen Notebook, has received the Jane Grigson Trust Award 2017. Commenting the Award, the Trust’s Chair Geraldene Holt quoted food writer Jane Grigson; “ it is this association of food … with every aspect of existence that makes me happy to be a food writer….” Of this year’s Award Holt said, “The judges considered this unusual book to be in the spirit of Jane Grigson, carrying its scholarship lightly. The biggest surprise was how delicious the food of an eighteenth-century monastery actually was.” Vicky translated and cooked the book, then interwove a modern contextual narrative through the 18th-century recipes.
