Jamie Oliver’s latest cookbook has so far racked up sales of 944,916 copies, and is shifting around 3,000–4,000 a week through Nielsen BookScan. Oliver came up with the idea for a collection of recipes using only five ingredients in 2017, after being inspired by the public on social media. The judges of the Non-Fiction: Lifestyle category praised both the content and the design; one said: “The concept works for all kinds of people and it has opened up cookbooks to people who wouldn’t normally buy cookbooks.”
