Best Book of the Year 2020

We are humbled and honored to win TWO top prizes in the prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Awards:
‘Best Book of the Year in All Categories’
´Best Book for Peace’

The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards is often compared to the ‘Oscars’ of gastronomy. ‘On the Hummus Route’ was chosen from thousands of entries from 130 countries. Due to the current global situation brought about by Covid-19, Gourmand, now in its 25th year, released the announcement of the winners today on their website and in a personal letter to us.

Our book ‘On the Hummus Route’ calls for a new social order and for equality. This message is even more pronounced now, in these challenging times that we all face worldwide. For us and for those who joined our journey, these amazing awards signify a ray of light just like the olive branch during the flood.


We met by hummus, and are united by love. Gourmand’s acknowledgment is an absolute proof that kindness is contagious as well.

In heartfelt hope and prayer for you and your loved ones, and for peace in the world.
