Headline Home has snapped-up a cookbook by chef and YouTuber Ian Haste at auction, featuring recipes based on weekly shopping lists.
Published on 11th July, The 7-Day Basket starts with a shopping list for the week ahead, followed by seven delicious recipes for each day of the week.
Its synopsis explains: “No more wandering aimlessly round the supermarket wondering what to cook for dinner, this book plans your week ahead, and will have you doing your food shopping in no time. Stick to Ian’s shopping lists, and dinner for two people for the whole week ahead will fit into your shopping basket.”
Lindsey Evans, publishing director of Headline Home, acquired world rights from Abigail Bergstrom at Gleam. Haste has already built up a strong social media following, with more than 85,000 YouTube subscribers and a further 56,000 Instagram followers on his @hasteskitchen account.
He said: “I’ve had the idea for The 7-Day Basket up my sleeve for some time now and I’m thrilled to be bringing it to life with the help of the incredible team at Headline. Our shared ambition is for this book to become a household staple and I can’t wait to see my readers using the seven-day shopping guide and recipes in each chapter to plan their entire week’s meals.”
Evans added: “This is the type of concept-led cookbook that I want to cook from, so I am absolutely thrilled that we are publishing it this year. Ian is a hands-on, clever chef who takes all the hassle out of meal-planning, offering delicious recipes for every night of the week. The added bonus is that no ingredients are left unused from your weekly shop, as every single item in your shopping basket is included in a recipe. I can’t wait for everyone to experience Ian’s approach to shopping and cooking.”
