Mary Berry: back at top of book chart

Last week the star of TV’s ‘The Great British Bake Off’ was pushed off the number one spot by ‘My Autobiography: My Life At Breakneck Speed’ by international road-racing legend Guy Martin.

But now Mary Berry has returned to lead the way with ‘Mary Berry Cooks’. The book features a collection of 100 recipes, including Mary’s menus for each episode of her BBC series of the same name, which aired recently.

At number six is Quick Recipe Collection, while the seventh and tenth places are held by Italian-British chef and television personality Gino D’Acampo.

At number seven, ‘Gino’s Italian Escape’ accompanies his ITV series of the same name. Described as a celebration of the very best Italian food, it features 100 recipes inspired by Gino’s adventures in Italy.

At number 10, Gino’s ‘Pronto! Let’s Cook Italian in 20 Minutes’ comprises 130 quick dishes. With recipes organised by ingredients, there are chapters on soups and small plates, chicken, meat, fish and seafood, pasta, vegetables and desserts. The book also includes hints and tips for quicker cooking, such as organising your workspace, and essential store cupboard ingredients for fast flavour.

This bestsellers list is compiled by Nielsen Bookscan TCM, which collates real time sales from over 6,500 retailers representing over 90% of the UK book market. It appeared in the May 25 issue of ‘The Mail on Sunday’s’ ‘Event’ Magazine.
