The awards were created in 1995 by a group of publishing professionals who were dissatisfied with the lack of cookbooks represented at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Thirty-one Canadian English-language authors and 15 French-language authors received awards, including Julian Armstrong for Made in Quebec: A Culinary Journey (HarperCollins Canada) in the best local cuisine category; Julie Morstad and Kyo Maclear for Julia, Child (Tundra Books) in the best illustrations category; Kevin Phillips for The Bologna Cookbook (Flanker Press) in the meat category; and Judy Chan, Paul Yee, and Shaoli Wang for Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts: A Literary Cookbook (Tradewind Books) for best cookbook of the year.
