Pinch of Nom by Kay Featherstone, Kate Allinson

Slimming food has never tasted so good; the must-have first cookbook from the UK’s most visited food blog.

Sharing delicious home-style recipes with a hugely engaged online community, has helped millions of people to cook well and lose weight.  The Pinch of Nom cookbook can help novice and experienced home-cooks enjoy exciting, flavourful and satisfying meals.  Accessible to everyone by not including diet points, all of these recipes are compatible with the principles of the UK’s most popular diet programmes.

There are 100 incredible recipes in the book, 33 of which are vegetarian.  Each recipe has been tried and tested by twenty Pinch of Nom community members to ensure it is healthy, full of flavour and incredibly easy to make.  Whether it’s Cumberland Pie, Mediterranean Chicken Orzo, Mexican Chilli Beef or Chicken Balti, this food is so good you’ll never guess the calorie count.  This book does not include ‘values’ from mainstream diet programmes as these are everchanging.  Instead the recipes are labelled with helpful icons to guide you towards the ones that suit you best – whether you’re looking for something veggie, fancy a fakeaway, want to feed a family of four or have limited time to spare.

Kate Allinson and Kay Featherstone owned a restaurant together in The Wirral, where Kate was head chef.  Together they created the Pinch of Nom blog with the aim of teaching people how to cook.  They began sharing healthy, slimming recipes and today Pinch of Nom is the UK’s most visited food blog with an active and engaged online community of over 1.5 million followers.

Showing that dieting should never be a barrier to good food, Pinch of Nom is the go-to home cookbook for mouthwatering meals that tick all the boxes.

The Pinch of Nom cookbook holds the UK record for fastest-selling non-fiction book

Peer & Press Reviews

Pinch of Nom isn’t a phenomenon.  A phenomenon has a beginning and an end, but this thing – at first a Facebook group, then a food website, now a record-breaking cookbook – is as vast, as unstoppable, as the universe expanding.

Ruby Tandoh, Guardian

Pinch of Nom is headed up by pro foodies… recipes are accessible for all in terms of budget and availability.

Edition background

These copies have a signature page, tipped-in before the half title page, which has the book’s title and the phrase ‘ONE OF A LIMITED EDITION SIGNED BY KATE AND KAY’ printed on it.

Issued direct by Bluebird, the total number of copies in this unnumbered limited edition is unknown.

The Pinch of Nom cookbook has smashed the record for the UK’s fastest-selling non-fiction book.  It sold 210,506 copies in its first three days on sale.  That’s 45,000 more than any other non-fiction work has sold in a single week since current records began in 1998.

It also means Pinch of Nom is now the ninth fastest-selling book of any description – behind novels by JK Rowling, Dan Brown and EL James.

(Jamie Oliver previously had the best first-week sales for a cookery book with Jamie’s Italy, which sold 155,000 copies before Christmas 2005.  The fastest-selling non-fiction book had been Peter Kay’s The Sound of Laughter, which sold 165,000 copies in 2006, according to Nielsen BookScan data.)
