Founded in 1989, Kyle Books publishes in the areas of food, health, gardening and lifestyle. Its backlist includes 50 Great Curries of India by Camellia Panjabi, which has sold more than a million copies worldwide, Hugo Arnold's The Wagamama Cookbook, and many titles from Darina Allen, Clodagh McKenna and Ming Tsai. Recent publications include Ching-He Huang's Stir Crazy and Robyn Youkilis's Thin from Within. Kyle Books was named Cookbook Publisher of the Year 2018 by the World Gourmand Awards.
In 2017, Kyle Books was acquired by Hachette UK and is now part of the Octopus Publishing Group.
Andrew Welham, deputy CEO of the Octopus Group, commented: "I would like to thank both the National Book Network and Baker & Taylor Publisher Services for their excellent work in selling the Kyle list in the U.S. and Canada for many years. I am now very much looking forward to bringing Kyle Books USA under the Octopus USA umbrella and developing the brand and a strong and exciting publishing program with our U.S. colleagues at Hachette Book Group and the Manda Group in Canada, who do such a great job in selling the Octopus list in North America."
