Colman Andrews

Colman Andrews' new cookbook is "The British Table: A New Look at the Traditional Cooking of England, Scotland, and Wales." His previous cookbooks have won wide acclaim. His first one, "Catalan Cuisine", originally published in 1988 and still in print, has been named one of the "50 Best Cookbooks of All Time" by the Observer Food Monthly and one of his more recent ones, "The Country Cooking of Ireland", was honored as Best International Cookbook by the James Beard Foundation in 2010 and beat out all other entries in all categories as foundation's Cookbook of the Year, then went on to win the 2011 Best International Cookbook prize from the International Association of Cooking Professionals. Andrews was a co-founder of Saveur, and its editor-in-chief from 2002 to 2006. After leaving the magazine, he became the restaurant columnist for Gourmet, serving in that capacity until its untimely demise. In 2010, he became editorial director of TheDailyMeal.com, a post he held until 2018. A native of Los Angeles with degrees in history and philosophy from UCLA, he was a restaurant reviewer and restaurant news columnist for the Los Angeles Times, and for three years edited "Traveling in Style", the Times travel magazine. Throughout the 1980s, he was wine and spirits columnist for Los Angeles Magazine, and published widely as a freelance writer, covering food, wine, travel, music, art, architecture, design, and the entertainment industry. The recipient of eight James Beard awards, Andrews is the co-author and co-editor of three Saveur cookbooks and nine of his own books on food: "Catalan Cuisine (which introduced the now-trendy cooking of Spain's Catalonia region to America); "Everything on the Table"; "Flavors of the Riviera"; "The Country Cooking of Ireland"; "Ferran: The Inside Story of El Bulli and the Man Who Reinvented Food" (a biography of Catalan superchef Ferran Adrià, also available in Spanish, French, and Italian translations); "The Country Cooking of Italy"; "The Taste of America"; a memoir called "My Usual Table: A Life in Restaurants; and the just-published cookbook "The British Table." Considered an expert on Spanish cooking, he authored the first-ever Spanish Culinary Curriculum, in partnership with José Andrés, for New York's International Culinary Center, and in 2012, was awarded the Creu de Sant Jordi, the highest civil honor granted by the government of Catalonia, in recognition of his services in popularizing Catalan cuisine around the world.
