It’s out with the stereotypes of frozen pizza and midnight kebabs every other evening – new research has suggested that students, actually, are quite into their home-cooking.

Sales of cookbooks have gone up by 70% amongst students in the last month, according to research from Amazon Student, and Jamie Oliver is the undisputed favourite celebrity chef in uni kitchens.

Mary Berry is also popular amongst students, beating her fellow Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood in book sales.

Baking and slow cooking are the top reasons for students to get into the kitchen, with these cookbooks featuring heavily in the bestseller list for the past week.

Here’s the top ten cookbooks list in full:

1. Nosh for Students – Jon & Ron May

2. Save with Jamie: Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less – Jamie Oliver

3. How to Be a Better Cook – Lorraine Pascale

4. Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook 200 Slow Cooker Recipes – Sara Lewis

5. Mary Berry Cooks The Perfect – Mary Berry

6. Cook Like A Man: The ultimate cookbook for the modern gentleman

7. The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook

8. Made in India: Cooked in Britain: Recipes from an Indian Family Kitchen – Meera Sodha

9. 200 Cupcakes: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook – Joanna Farrow

10. The Skinny Slow Cooker Recipe Book: Delicious Recipes Under 300, 400 and 500 Calories

Amazon puts the surge in popularity of cookbooks down to TV programmes including MasterChef, Jamie’s Comfort Food and, of course, The Great British Bake Off.

After Jamie Oliver and Mary Berry, other top chefs amongst students include Paul Hollywood, Delia Smith and Nigella Lawson.

Charlie Caroe, Amazon Student Manager at Amazon.co.uk Ltd, says, “As well as stretching their academic minds while at university, students are also stretching their culinary capabilities. The recent surge in cookbook sales shows that students are interested in choosing to cook more exciting meals from scratch while at university to satisfy their sense of accomplishment.”
