I am a very shamefaced Sharon right now.
See, I don't usually read the New Straits Times (although I read newspapers from around the world online) so I missed the great news that Mohana Gill has won The Gourmand World Cookbook Award 2007 for her book on vegetarian cooking, Vegemania. This is actually her second award (she won the Special Jury Award for her earlier book Fruistastic!). Read Zahara Othman's article here.
I first met Mohana when she appeared at MPH's Writer's Circle, and was impressed with both her passion for getting out the message about healthy eating and her beautifully produced books with tempting recipes.
My biggest congrats, Aunty Mohana for very well deserved success. (And many thanks to my anonymous commentator who sent me this information. Don't let me slip up again!)
If you'd like a little taste of Mohana's recipes, take a look at these excellent little videos on Friedchillies.tv - Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4.
