Michael Booth’s ‘The Meaning of Rice’ shortlisted for Guild of Food Writers Awards

Michael Booth’s THE MEANING OF RICE (Jonathan Cape, 2017) has been shortlisted for the 2018 Guild of Food Writers Award in the ‘Food and Travel’ category.

In his thoroughly researched book, Michael Booth and his family embark on an epic journey the length of Japan to explore its dazzling food culture. They find a country much altered since their previous visit ten years earlier (which resulted in the award-winning international bestseller Sushi and Beyond).

The awards are the most prestigious in food writing and broadcasting and recognise outstanding achievement in areas where food writers work and have influence. They are awarded annually and judged entirely by professional food writers, editors and broadcasters.

The winners will be announced on Monday 18th of June at Opera Holland Park.
