The week in pictures

The overall winner in the drinks book category was Peter Liem’s book Champagne.

It was a standout year for drinks books at the André Simon Awards this week with Peter Liem (above, right), Dave Broom and Victoria Moore (below) all picking up prizes for their work.

At the awards ceremony on Monday night it fell to judge Joe Fattorini (above, left) to talk through the books and announce the winners.

Despite just 40 drinks books being submitted as opposed to 113 food books, Fattorini said he was “lucky enough to have judged in something of a marquee year”.

This year’s special commendation went to Victoria Moore’s The Wine Dine Dictionary
