Last month, we asked ourselves, “Can anything stop Thug Kitchen?” This month, we get the answer: No. Nothing can stop the Thugs. It was the top-selling cookbook on Amazon.com in December, January, February, and now, March.
“With Thug Kitchen No. 1 again, it’s game on for April’s cookbooks,” Seira Wilson, Amazon Book Editor, told Yahoo Food. “Will one of them knock Thug Kitchen off its pedestal?” Wilson says a possible contender is The Whole30, which was in the top 10 for March even though it doesn’t release until April 21. The book features over 100 recipes meant to guide readers toward weight loss and improved energy levels.
“So far this year the bestselling cookbooks have been almost exclusively healthy diet and/or weight loss-based, and March is no exception,” Wilson said. That includes Deliciously Ella, one of Yahoo Food’s Cookbooks of the Week, by British blogger Ella Woodward. Read how she saved her life by changing her diet here.
All the health-forward books “have got me kind of rooting for the next big thing that includes recipes with gluten or meat — or gluten and meat! — just to spice things up a bit,” Wilson said. She might get her wish in April: San Francisco chef Corey Lee's Benu and Momofuku Milk Bar chef Christina Tosi's Milk Bar Life have already made the Amazon editors’ Best Cookbooks of April list.
