Product description

'Cooking is not just about joining the dots, following one recipe slavishly and then moving on to the next. In cooking, as in writing, you must please yourself to please others.' Hailed by chefs, reviewers, cookery writers and millions of home cooks worldwide as one of the best cookery books ever written, How To Eat is more than just an imaginative collection of over 350 delicious, simple recipes. Combining Nigella's down-to-earth, practical cookery advice with a passion for food and a friendly, chatty style, you will need two copies of this glorious classic: one for the kitchen, one for the bedside table. This is Nigel Slater's all-time favourite cookbook: "If I could only keep one cookbook, this would be it. How To Eat suits the way I cook. It is as if Nigella is sitting on a stool next to me in the kitchen as I'm cooking...With every page you know she loves this stuff, and she wants you to love it too. It's a very, very special book for me. My own copy is falling apart." With gloriously witty food writing, easy recipes, basic cooking tips and a beautiful hardback design, this is a book you will treasure for many years as well as a delicious gift for friends and family. Features: Basics - from easy bread recipes and basic roast chicken to sauce ingredients and seasonal foods; Cooking in advance - slow cooking, marinades and stress-free, easy recipes; One and two - cooking for one and meals for two people, from the practical to the romantic; Fast food - easy recipes and quick meal ideas; Weekend lunch - Saturday and Sunday lunch menus, for entertaining friends and family meals; Dinner - complete dinner menus for any occasion, from an elegant dinner party to a simple supper; Low Fat - healthy recipes and low-fat meals that still burst with flavour; and Feeding babies and small children - weaning recipes, easy family meals and dishes to tempt that fussy eater.

Author information

'I love Nigella Lawson's writing and I love her recipes' - Delia Smith 'There's an intelligence to the way she writes and she expects a certain intelligence of her readers as well' - Nigel Slater "I am unapologetic about being a home cook rather than a chef. Real cooking, the sort that goes on in homes, does not have to be tricksy or difficult. A dish of chicken poached with leeks and carrots definitely isn't fancy. But it tastes good, and feels essentially nourishing, to both body and soul, to cook and eat. I want you to feel that I'm there with you, in the kitchen, as you cook. My books are the conversations we might be having." Nigella Lawson has written nine bestselling cookery books, including the classics How To Eat and How to Be A Domestic Goddess - the book that launched a thousand cupcakes. These books, her TV series and her Quick Collection apps, have made her a household name around the world. In 2014 she was voted Best Food Personality at the Observer Food Monthly Awards. www.nigella.com @Nigella_Lawson 'Her prose is as nourishing as her recipes' - Salman Rushdie, Observer 'Miss Lawson is the Thinking Person's Cook. She tells stories, she explains why things must be the way she says they must be... enlightenment and sensual pleasure' - Jeanette Winterson, The Times

Review quote

"Nigella Lawson is one of the best and most influential of British food writers ... The staple cookbook for a whole generation" -- Ruth Rogers, co-author of The River Cafe Cookbook "My kitchen bible to this day... You made me realise that every meal is a celebration. You didn't teach me how to cook. You taught me how to eat." -- Nigel Slater Observer "How to eat, how to cook, how to write: I want two copies of this book, one to reference in the kitchen and one to read in bed." -- Yotam Ottolenghi "A classic of the genre: a book that easily gathers both experiences and novice cooks under its wing, with something to teach them all, and a witty confiding manner as it does so. Frankly, no kitchen is complete without." The Irish Independent "How to Eat may just be the best cookery book ever" Daily Telegraph
