“To have achieved the success we have had and worked with so many amazing chefs has been hugely satisfying.

“But the really exciting thing is there’s lots more to come from us – and hopefully winning this award will create even more opportunities.”

This year the company is set to release titles from current MasterChef champion Simon Wood and two-Michelin starred chef and judge on Great British Menu, Daniel Clifford. Its Manchester Cook Book was a best seller in Waterstones in the north west.
