Judy Kempler and Pnina Jacobson

The annual showcase helps readers and distributors identify the best of the many thousands of food and wine books published each year.  For the 2011 awards, entries were received from 162 countries.

The winning entries will be celebrated at an Awards Gala Event to be held at Theatre Folies Bergere, Paris, on March 6, and all finalists will have their books exhibited at the Paris Cookbook
Fair, which runs between March 7-11,

“One Egg is a Fortune” is currently available for sale in United States and Australia though world-wide delivery can be arranged.

The book is the brainchild of Sydney women Judy Kempler and Pnina Jacobson. The book captures stories and recipes from 50 prominent members of the world-wide Jewish community.

Internationally-acclaimed Israeli singer Dudu Fisher told Kempler and Jacobson that his grandmother was a Holocaust survivor determined not see her beloved grandson want for something to eat…so she bribed him daily after school to eat food placing a value on each item. Topping the list was a commodity rarely found in Nazi concentration camps…eggs.

Hence, the title of the book.
