A cookbook based on the hit BBC TV series ‘East Well For Less’ has jumped into ‘The Mail on Sunday’ UK bestsellers list for non-fiction paperbacks.
Written by Jo Scarratt-Jones, with a foreword by the shows presenters Gregg Wallace and Chris Bavin, it contains 80 recipes for healthy family meals.
The book also includes a meal-planning guide, help on freezing and storing food, a family budget planner, ideas on how to get kids cooking and sample shopping lists, as well as tips from Gregg, Chris and the experts from the show.
Taking the two top spots in the list of non-fiction paperbacks is fitness guru Joe Wicks (aka The Body Coach).
At number one is ‘Lean in 15 – The Shape Plan: 15 minute meals with workouts to build a strong, lean body’ which introduces a new way of eating and training to build lean muscle and burn more fat. In the book, Joe shares 100 recipes and four new workouts.
At number two is ‘Lean In 15’, which features 100 recipes and guides the reader through Joe’s home workouts.
For best-selling non-fiction hardbacks, Jamie Oliver’s new cookbook ‘Super Food Family Classics’ leads the way for the third week.
Following on from his best-selling ‘Everyday Super Food’, the celebrity chef shares his ideas for freshening up family favourites. Chapters include Breakfast, Quick Fixes, Healthy Classics, Salads, Curries & Stews, Traybakes, Pasta & Risotto and Soups.
Every recipe is tried and tested and nutritional information is included on the page, such as the number of veg and fruit portions in each dish. There is also a back-section with advice on subjects such as cooking with kids, fussy eaters, gut health, the importance of fibre and budgeting.
‘Tanya Bakes’, the debut cookbook by beauty, fashion and lifestyle vlogger Tanya Burr, is at number three in the chart. Within it she shares her passion for baking, along with her favourite recipes, from everyday staple bakes to sweet treats for special occasions.
At number six is ‘Cook Happy, Cook Healthy’ by TV and radio presenter Fearne Cotton. Her debut cookbook is billed as ‘full of easy, fast and healthy recipes for everything from breakfast and speedy suppers to baked treats’.
