Naomi Duguid. Food & Wine Write

Naomi Duguid (Ottawa, 1950) is one of Canada’s most renowned food experts. A Law graduate from Queens University in Kingston, Ontario, she worked for a time as a lawyer but in 1995 decided, together with her husband Jeffrey Alford (a photographer), to change direction and to dedicate her time to traveling and writing books about the food of different countries (including Spain) as well as newspaper articles about food. According to Gourmet magazine, more than simple recipe books Duguid and Alford created a new genre of food books that explain thoroughly the cultural and human context of cuisine as well as explaining the original way of preparing the dishes.

The publication of their most recent book: Beyond the Great Wall: Recipes and Travels in the Other China, received the James Beard Award, the most important prize for English language food publications, which was also given to Flatbreads & Flavors (1994) and Hot Sour Salty Sweet: A Culinary Journey Through Southeast Asia (2000). In Canada, she received the Cuisine Canada Cookbook Award in 1999 and 2004.
