So how many cookbooks are published each year?
"According to Edouard Cointreau, founder and president of the Gourmand
World Cookbook Awards and president of the Paris Cookbook Fair, more
than 26,000 books on food and wine are published around the world
every year. Last year, some 8,000 of them, in 40 languages from 136
countries, entered the Gourmand World Cookbook Fair Awards—and some 60
of them won awards. The awards, which will be presented at the Paris
Cookbook Fair in March 2011, honor books in a variety of categories ....
As of August 31, publishers and authors from 144 countries had entered
this year’s competition, said Cointreau, with Bhutan, Cook Island,
Montenegro, New Caledonia, and Uzbekistan participating for the first
time." from PW
