Blake Friedmann’s Ken Hom wins Food Broadcast of the Year Award


Ken Hom, along with his co-presenter Ching-He Huang, has won the Food Broadcast Award 2013 at the Guild of Food Writers Awards. The award was for China: A Culinary Adventure, a four-part television series broadcast on BBC2 last summer. The Telegraph wrote 'watching Hom at work was a treat'.

The programme, which was produced by Keo Films, had also been nominated for the Award for Work on Food and Travel.

The tie-in book, EXPLORING CHINA: Our Culinary Adventure was published by BBC Books.

Emma Gardner, another client on Blake Friedmann's growing list of food writers, was also nominated. Her blog Poires au Chocolat was in contention for the Food Blog of the Year award -- an accolade it was awarded in 2012.
