The Flavour Principle, by Lucy Waverman and Beppi Crosariol.

The Canadian Press

Lucy Waverman and fellow Globe and Mail columnist Beppi Crosariol have won Taste Canada's award for the best general cookbook published this year.

Their book, The Flavour Principle: Enticing Your Senses with Food and Drink, is based on the idea that "every great dish has a centre of gravity, a flavour or essence that pulls together other ingredients into a coherent and compelling whole," according to its publisher, HarperCollins.

The book was also crowned the best food and drinks cookbook in Canada at this year's Gourmand Awards.

David Levesque and Martin Thibault won in the culinary narratives category for their book Les saveurs gastronomiques de la bière.

Nick Saul and Adrea Curtis were the English winners in that category for their book The Stop: How the Fight for Good Food Transformed a Community and Inspired a Movement.

Top honours in the regional/cultural cookbooks category went to Jennifer Bain's Toronto Star Cookbook: More Than 150 Diverse and Delicious Recipes Celebrating Ontario.
