PFCDD chosen for the next Gourmand World Awards competition

Last week, December 10, 2016, I received an email from Edouard Cointreau, the President of Gourmand Award. I was surprised that my book, the PFCDD, was chosen to vie for the next Gourmand World Awards competition. I just can't believe what's going on.  I checked the internet and found that Gourmand World Awards do exists. ANVIL, my publisher told me they were the ones who submitted the entry for my book.

Here's the email message from Mr.Cointreau:
"Food, Cooking and Dining Dictionnary is part of the next Gourmand  World  Awards competition.You will receive more information within three weeks. The awards events will be May 28, 2017 in Yantai, China. You will find the plan 2017 on page 11 of the attached document, a General Presentation and History of the Gourmand Awards.
Best regards"

I crossed my fingers (and my toes).  

I need prayers for the PFCDD.
