Boyish chef Jamie Oliver moved past Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling on British bestseller lists this week, the Guardian reports. Their books were released on the same day, Sept. 27.
Oliver has penned a cookbook, "15 Minute Meals." His cookbooks are perennially popular, landing at or near the top of British bestseller lists.
While Rowling is also a bestseller, her novel released this year was not guaranteed to be a hit. She left Harry Potter behind and penned her first book for adults, "The Casual Vacancy."
"The Casual Vacancy" sold 124,603 copies in England its first week -- more than 100,000 more books than Oliver's "15 Minute Meals." But while Rowling's sales have dropped off, Oliver's have steadily climbed.
