About our Express cookbook

Kate and Kay owned a restaurant together on the Wirral in the UK, where Kate was head chef. Together they created the Pinch of Nom blog with the aim of teaching people how to cook. Now 6 cookbooks, 3 planners and a community of over 3 million followers later, we’re thrilled to be bringing you another hardback book to add to your Nom collection.

Pinch of Nom: Express features 100 slimming-friendly recipes that help you make the most of whatever time you have to cook. Whether you fancy something you can prep quickly and leave to simmer, or need a tasty dish that cooks in no time, we’ve got you covered. 

We’ve separated the recipes into two easy-to-navigate sections: Quick Prep and Quick Cook. This means you can flick straight to the section that best fits around your busy day, and enjoy all the food you love, in even less time. 

You can expect every recipe to be brimming with our trademark Pinch of Nom bold flavours. Just like in all our previous books, we’ve designed these recipes to only ever use simple ingredients and adapt to the equipment that you’ve already got in your kitchen – it’s all about making your life easier!

Slimming-friendly favourites, made in a flash.

What’s new for Express?

The recipes inside this book all come with our new ‘Express Promise’. This promise is all about helping you to make good, nutritious, tasty meals that work around your busy schedule. That’s why you’ll find that we’ve separated out the recipes into two main chapters: Quick Cook and Quick Prep. 

Are there only two chapters?

Wherever possible we like to give you multiple options when it comes to cooking food in a way that suits you – whether that’s cracking out your slow cooker or popping it in the air fryer. 

There are 14 recipes with alternative cooking methods in this book, including 10 recipes with speedy air fryer methods. Even without any fancy bits of kit, these are recipes that everyone will find easy to make and delicious to eat. 

What nutritional information is provided?

We’ve included clear calorie counts for each recipe, along with helpful nutritional info (calories, carbs, fibre etc) to make planning and tracking food nice and simple. As with our other cookbooks, there will be no values for diet plans, but you can find help with calculating them here.
