Most innovative cookbook in the world: Knit and Nibble

James McIntosh
June 20, 2019

If you see me out and about, my bag usually has a knitting project inside. Said project comes out on the bus, in a coffee shop, on the plane or even a train. It's safe to say I do a lot of knitting. Indeed, I knit my way to China in May to attend the prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

The 'nibble' part of Knit and Nibble was entered into the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards - the 'Oscars' of cookbook publishing. The beautiful Chinese city of Yantai was the location, and my nerves were somewhat present as the different award winners were called out. This was my first book for my own publishing company McIntosh Publishing, Knit and Nibble was announced by Mons. Edouard Cointreau, President of Gourmand as the most innovative cookbook in the world.

I was called to the stage, I talked about how depression has taught me to knit and how important knitting was to me as a mindful activity to aid my recovery. I was humbled.

The title of this book should be Happy, Knit and Nibble.
It brought happiness back to its author, and it will give you weeks or even months of happiness.
How many books can do that?
