Yellow Kite has signed Slimming Eats by blogger Siobhan Wightman for release in December.
Lauren Whelan, editorial director at Yellow Kite, bought world rights directly from the author. It will be published on 30th December 2021 in hardback and e-book.
“Slimming Eats is a collection of 100-plus brand new, inspiring recipes and 15 blog favourites, all packed with flavour and using real ingredients,” Yellow Kite said.
Wightman started the Slimming Eats blog in 2009 “to keep herself, and many others, accountable on their weight-loss journey,” Yellow Kite said. “She has built a loyal fanbase of over 1.5 million people who have found that her healthy, simple approach to cooking not only helps them lose weight, but is delicious and enjoyable to create and eat.” Wightman was born in London, but now lives in Ontario, Canada.
She said: “It’s really exciting to be publishing my debut cookbook. It’s been a long time coming, but it finally felt like the right moment.”
Whelan commented: “Siobhan is such a dedicated and passionate author to work with. She’s built an incredible fanbase and loyal following with Slimming Eats and her first cookbook will be a celebration of everything it is so known and loved for. It will be an essential source of recipe inspiration for her community and beyond.”
