2020 Taste Canada Awards Winners


Our Very Own Coconut Lagoon Has Won a Taste Canada Award!

Each year, Taste Canada chooses the best French and English Canadian cookbooks published in various categories, including Culinary Narratives, General Cookbooks, Regional / Cultural, Single Subject and more. The shortlist of nominees offers a wide variety of reading choices for the culinary aficionado on your holiday gift list, as well as fabulous new recipes for you to try out at home.

The winner of the Regional / Cultural category is none other than Chef Joe Thottungal, owner of Ottawa restaurant Thali, Coconut Lagoon, who has created a beautiful cookbook filled with dishes from his native South India. Discover the flavors of mango pickle, dosa, Malabar parathas, biryani and Thrissur-style fish straight from the land of spices and tropical sunshine.

If you don’t want to do the cooking yourself, you can order take-out from this local restaurant, or buy a gift card for the holidays. What a treat!
