Hebridean Baker Coinneach MacLeod is celebrating his sell-out North American book tour with the announcement that his cookbook 'My Scottish Island Kitchen' has hit the Canadian bestseller list in its first week of release.
Talking on return from his seven-city book tour, Coinneach said ‘I have loved our tour across North America. I’ve been so proud to share the recipes, culture, history and stories of the Outer Hebrides and Scotland, and delighted they have resonated with so many folk across the Atlantic’
Coinneach’s ten night sell-out tour took him and his partner Peter MacQueen to Washington DC, Boston, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Denver, Chicago and Toronto, which finished with an appearance on primetime Canadian TV show The Social, where he shared his recipes and stories with the celebrity guests and presenters.
‘I’ve signed over 2,000 copies of my cookbook and have loved meeting many folk with Hebridean and Scottish connections across the country’ said Coinneach.
‘I’m already looking forward to returning to the US next month for a special book event at New York Tartan Week on the 11th of April and a trip to Philadelphia on the 14th’.
Coinneach recently celebrated the news that he was officially Scotland’s best-selling cookbook author for the past two years. With his two cookbooks, he has featured on This Morning, Steph’s Packed Lunch, the Travel Show, and alongside Martin Compston on Scottish Fling.
Coinneach recently announced his third cookbook Hebridean Baker, At Home will be released on October 12, sharing more traditional Scottish recipes, Hebridean stories and beautiful photography from across the islands.
