A Book on Islamic Food Culture is Chosen as Science Book of 2010
A book about the cuisine of Islamic countries has won the prize for Finland's science book of the year 2010. The prestigious prize, worth 10,000 euros, was awarded to co-authors Helena Hallenberg and Irmeli Perho.
In their book Ruokakulttuuri islamin maissa, which is published by Gaudeamus, Doctors of Philosophy Hallenberg and Perho are not content to merely describe dishes or give recipes. Instead, food is a vehicle through which the history, culture and societies of the Islamic world are explored.
