Pinch of Nom: 100 Slimming, Home-Style Recipes by Kate Allinson & Kay Feathersone has sold 210,506 copies in its first week of sales, beating Jamie Oliver with a record-breaking number for a non-fiction book.
Cookery debut Pinch of Nom has broken records in its first week of sale, securing the title the highest single week sales for a non-fiction book since records began.
Only 13 other Food & Drink authors have ever had a book that’s sold more than 210k copies in a single year, let alone in just 3 days. It is now one of only 14 titles to ever sell more than 200k copies in a single week, joining an elite group which includes several of the Harry Potter books.
Authors Kate Allinson & Kay Feathersone have also knocked Jamie Oliver off the top spot, selling 36% more copies than Jamie’s Italy did in its first week back in 2005.
Pinch of Nom is the UK’s most popular food blog with an engaged community of over 1.5 million fans, now with the added accolade of having the 9th bestselling publication week sales for any book of any genre.
The long-awaited cookery book was already set for success, generating Pan Macmillan’s largest ever pre-order number within a 24-hour period in September of last year.
