Harper Non-Fiction has acquired the world rights to a début cookbook by NHS GP Dr Rupy Aujla.
The deal for The Doctor’s Kitchen was struck by Carolyn Thorne, editorial director for Harper Thorsons, with Becca Barr at Becca Barr Management and Carly Cook, agent and consultant.
Aujla trained at Imperial College London, and in The Doctor’s Kitchen his “delicious, healthy recipes” are informed by his medical knowledge.
The doctor overhauled his own eating habits after being urged to dramatically change his lifestyle in order to avoid undergoing a heart procedure—and has not looked back.
The book will be published in January 2018.
