LAS VEGAS - Dec. 16, 2021 - PRLog -- Histria Books is pleased to announce that author S.P. Grogan and his culinary mystery has been nominated for the prestigious Gourmand International's Best in the World cookbook awards with winners to be announced in 2022 in Paris.

S.P. Grogan was the only American author nominated in the "Food Novel" category for his culinary work, Captain Cooked, Hawaiian Mystery of Revenge, Romance, and Recipes, and the book also nominated in the category of "Countries and Regions (South Pacific)".  The book has been  re-released as The 10th Anniversary Special Edition. When originally published the book won an award from the Hawai'i Book Publishers Association.

Edouard Cointreau, Founder and President of the Gourmand Awards stated: "The selection of the Gourmand Awards give an overview of the best around the world. There is approximately 1% chance to be selected on this Gourmand Awards list!... This year there were 1558 selections from 227 countries and regions," explained Cointreau, "It is the maximum we have ever had.  With the pandemic, people are coming back to cooking and reading. Authors and publishers are responding to the demand in quantity and quality.  When we started 26 years ago, there were only 25,000 cookbooks or food writing per year.  In total, there are now over 100,000 food and drink culture books and documents every year, in print or digital, free or paid, with our without ISBN."

The Best in the World award is considered the 'Oscars' of the culinary industry.

"See what ten years of summer vacations to Hawai'i might turn into," said a smiling S.P. Grogan.  Captain Cooked features 26 recipes from the top chefs and restaurants on the Big Island of Hawai'i, interwoven into island murders that involve a celebrity chef and his troublesome daughter, where 'she is looking for love on all the wrong beaches'.

Author Craig Johnson of Longmire fame said of Captain Cooked, "something you can sink your teeth into more ways than one."

Grogan is the author of several historical novels and mysteries including Lafayette: Courtier to Crown Fugitive; Atomic Dreams at the Red Tiki Lounge, Vegas Die, a Quest Mystery; and was editor on My Cookbook Passion by Pamela Kure Grogan which has just been published and also a Gourmand awards nominee under the category of 'culinary history'.
