The award has stunned the book’s authors as it competed in an open class against all cookbooks from around the world. Kempler told J-Wire: “We are so excited and will travel to new york in June where the price will be presented.”

Eleven years in the making, “One Egg Is A Fortune” is a book featuring recipes, stories and biographies from fifty prominent Jewish people from around the world. Book sales support Jewish aged care.

The book, created and self-published in by Sydney-based Kempler and Jacobson in Australia, has just been awarded a second honour in the “World’s Largest Book Awards Contest” – this time, in the United States, with an IPPY silver medal in the cookbook category. This competition recognises over 5,200 titles published by independent authors and publishers.

“One Egg Is A Fortune” was also awarded Best in the World as winner in its category, “Australia-Pacific – Fundraising, Charity and Community”, in the 17th annual Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in Paris earlier this year. Entries came from 172 countries.

While each contributor tells a unique story, their anecdotes suggest that the enjoyment of food is the common thread that binds us together. “One Egg Is A Fortune” is a cookbook full of heart! It is a book for today from years gone by.  This timeless book presents over 100 delicious recipes with clear, easy-to-follow instructions with stunning food photography by Craig Cranko, sophisticated food styling by Michele Cranston (Marie Claire, The New York Times and others), and elegant book design by award winner Melanie Feddersen from i2i Design.
