Cookbooks top the bestsellers lists

At number one is food blogger Ella Woodward with ‘Deliciously Ella’. Her book contains more than 100 natural, plant-based, dairy-free and gluten-free recipes, including sweet potato brownies, Mexican quinoa bowl, superfood bread, marinated kale salad and key lime pie.

Mary Berry, co-judge of BBC1’s ‘The Great British Bake Off’ series, is at number seven with ‘Mary Berry’s Absolute Favourites’. In this official tie-in to Mary’s new BBC2 series, which kicks off on Friday at 8pm, she reveals the secrets of her favourite food. Featuring all the recipes from the show, the collection of over 100 dishes also contains Mary’s favourite Christmas recipes from her two 2014 TV specials, ‘Mary Berry’s Absolute Christmas Favourites’.

‘Gino’s Veg Italia!’ by Gino D’Acampo is in eighth place. In his first meat-free cookbook, the Italian chef brings together his favourite dishes based on vegetables and flavoured with herbs, oils and chilli, from pasta and gnocchi, pizzas and breads, antipasti and salads to gratins and bakes.

In ninth place is ‘The Art of Eating Well’ by sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley. This cookbook offers more than 150 recipes which are free from grain, gluten, high starch and refined sugar. Jasmine and Melissa’s philosophy is simple: a healthy gut leads to a healthy body and mind.

Another cookbook heads up the list of the UK’s top 10 best-selling non-fiction paperbacks: ‘Eat. Nourish. Glow. 10 easy steps for losing weight, looking younger & feeling healthier’ by Amelia Freer. In this, her first book, the nutritional therapist and healthy eating expert explains her 10 steps to holistic health and provides over 25 recipes to get readers started on ‘the path to optimum wellness’.

The book charts are compiled by Nielsen Bookscan TCM, which collates real time sales from over 6,500 retailers representing over 90% of the UK book market. They appeared in the May 10 issue of ‘The Mail On Sunday’s’ ‘Event’ Magazine.
