Aster has acquired two more books from Pip Payne, founder of the award-winning blog The Slimming Foodie and author of The Slimming Foodie, published by the Octopus imprint earlier this year.
The blogger is known for her simple approach to food and is a firm believer that you don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen to deliver amazing results, nor do you have to completely change your eating habits to lose weight. Her second book, The Slimming Foodie in One: 100+ One-Pot Wonders, will be published on 14th April 2022 and include more than 100 brand-new recipes, each under 600 calories, all of which can be prepared in one pot, pan or tray.
Natalie Bradley, senior commissioning editor, acquired world all-language rights in two titles from Heather Holden-Brown at HHB Agency. Bradley said: "I am delighted to work with Pip again, not least because I can enjoy more of her cooking! Slimming Foodie fans love the promise of a one-pot meal, so we’ve tried to give them exactly what they want with this second book. I’m excited for us to build on the success of book one and continue to grow the Slimming Foodie brand."
Payne commented: "I'm thrilled to be publishing two more books with the Aster team. One-pot wonders have always been a favourite with The Slimming Foodie followers, and I hope that this book continues to help people plan their day-to-day meals, and make healthy home-cooking easy, accessible and enjoyable."
