Founder, President & Head Judge of the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, Edouard Cointreau
The founder and president of the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, Edouard Cointreau, was born into the families of Cointreau Liqueur on his dad’s side and Cognacs Frapin and Remy Martin on his mum’s side. His family has had vineyards since 1270 so he should know a thing or two about food and drink!
