One of the books published by the Stanborough Press was presented with the prestigious Wise Women Award on 14 March 2021 for outstanding Christian book. The Stanborough Press book, which won the hotly contested prize over many other nominees, was Cooking With Kids by Kirly-Sue (also known as Susanne Kirlew), from Walthamstow Church in London, UK.

Kirly-Sue receives award

The Wise Women Awards Ceremony has been a tradition within the UK for many years, recognising the contribution that Christian women from many denominations in the UK, Europe and the USA have made to the church and wider society.

Asked about how she felt on receiving this award, Kirlew explained, “I thank God for this award. I am so pleased and feel so humbled. However, writing a book is one thing, but driving the sales is an even bigger task. But I want to recognise that God has been with me and the Stanborough Press each step of the way, and I particularly appreciate the talent of Abigail Murphy in creating a masterpiece design.”

The award-winning book is a plant-based cookery book for parents and children. From bibimbap to beany balls, and from plantain porridge to banana bread, there are soups, salads, breakfasts, dinners, smoothies, and desserts galore in this charmingly illustrated healthy cookbook. With stunning food photography and more than 75 individual recipes, Cooking With Kids reveals a glimpse into the inner workings of Kirly-Sue’s TV shows and philosophy. There are updates of time-proven favourite recipes, inventive new ideas, and contemporary twists on multi-ethnic dishes from around the world.

Says Kirly-Sue, ‘Who knew that vegan cooking could be so much fun?’ The book is available for purchase from the LifeSource Christian Bookshop.
