Indigenous Food Systems, edited by Priscilla Settee and Shailesh Shukla, has been recognized by the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards as an outstanding work in the category of Food Heritage. As a 2020 winner for Canada, Indigenous Food Systems will go on to compete for Best in World (2021) in the Food Heritage category.

Founded by Edouard Cointreau, The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards has been honouring the best books in food and wine on a global scale since 1995. With books from over 70 countries competing in over 100 categories, The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards are inspired by the Olympics and have been compared to the Oscars.

Indigenous Food Systems is a vital exploration into the importance and revitalization of Indigenous Food knowledges for the health and well being of Indigenous and Canadian populations. Through in-depth case studies and critical conversations, this edited collection seeks solutions to food insecurity and draws together the research of Indigenous and non-Indigenous food practitioners and scholars to promote an understanding of the barriers to Indigenous food systems and presents ways of reclaiming cultural identity and food sovereignty.
