Description

'Food, for me, is a constant pleasure: I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it ... More than just a mantra, "cook, eat, repeat" is the story of my life.'

**WITH OVER 15O DELICIOUS RECIPIES THIS IS THE ULTIMATE GIFT FOR EVERY COOK AND FOODIE IN YOUR LIFE**

THE BBC TV SERIES, COOK, EAT, REPEAT, IS AVAILABLE TO WATCH ON IPLAYER NOW

Cook, Eat, Repeat is a delicious and delightful combination of recipes intertwined with narrative essays about food, all written in Nigella's engaging and insightful prose. Whether asking 'What is a Recipe?' or declaring death to the Guilty Pleasure, Nigella's wisdom about food and life comes to the fore, with tasty new recipes that readers will want to return to again and again.

'The recipes I write come from my life, my home', says Nigella, and in this book she shares the rhythms and rituals of her kitchen through over 150 new recipes that make the most of her favourite ingredients. Dedicated chapters include 'A is for Anchovy' (a celebration of the bacon of the sea), 'Rhubarb', 'A Loving Defence of Brown Food', a suitably expansive chapter devoted to family dinners, plus inspiration for vegan feasts, solo suppers and new ideas for Christmas.

Within these chapters are recipes for all seasons and tastes: Burnt Onion and Aubergine Dip; Butternut with Beetroot, Chilli and Ginger Sauce; Fish Finger Bhorta; Spaghetti with Chard and Anchovies; Chicken with Garlic Cream Sauce; Beef Cheeks with Port and Chestnuts; and Wide Noodles with Lamb in Aromatic Broth, to name a few. Those with a sweet tooth will delight in Chocolate, Tahini and Banana Pudding; Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake; Basque Burnt Cheesecake; and Cherry and Almond Crumble.

Lawson's engaging tone...makes this an ideal Christmas present in these dark days... Just now there may be little we can do but cook, eat, repeat, but Lawson shows us this can and should be pleasurably ritualistic rather than monotonous

Review quote

Set to be one of the blockbusters of 2020 * The Times * Lawson's latest book is the one I've been waiting for her to write...Her aim is to empower and demystify and to encourage everyone to get as much pleasure from cooking as she does -- Diana Henry * Daily Telegraph * Interweaves domestic goddess-style recipes with personal musings and guides * Vogue.co.uk * Twenty-two years after her first book, How To Eat, Nigella Lawson has produced what feels like its answer: Cook, Eat, Repeat. * The Times * Nigella's writing is a culinary stream of consciousness that piques the senses and you hear her reassuring voice through her writing... Cook, Eat, Repeat is expansive, practical and enjoyable * Caterer * Cook, Eat, Repeat is a wonderful combination of gastronomical essays, stylish up-to-date imagery and - most importantly - recipes with far-reaching appeal, ticking boxes as both an entertaining read and a practical guide -- Rosie Conroy * Independent * A gloriously comforting book I curled up and read it on the sofa... Nigella describes how and why food is so important and life-enhancing -- Victoria Hislop * Daily Express, *Books of the Year* * The most delicious-sounding ideas... [and the] perfect book to hone your cooking skills - and lockdown might provide extra time you need * Sun * Deliciously indulgent food escapes -- Hannah Stephenson * UK Press Syndication * Lawson's engaging tone...makes this an ideal Christmas present in these dark days... Just now there may be little we can do but cook, eat, repeat, but Lawson shows us this can and should be pleasurably ritualistic rather than monotonous -- Carina Murphy * Tablet * Cook, Eat, Repeat recipes are hits...written about in a lyrical style that inspires you to cook -- Susannah Butter * Evening Standard * Few cookery writers write so beautifully, imbuing their recipes with such a sense of narrative, culinary enthusiasm and human understanding... [The] recognition of the personal nature of cooking, and the connections it involves, strikes at the heart of her appeal -- Ettie Neil-Gallacher * Field * No one blends tempting recipes and thoughtful digression on the subject of food with quite the same easy grace as Nigella. Her latest offering is a classic example * Waitrose Weekend, *Christmas Gift Guide 2020* * A new title from Nigella Lawson is always welcome, but never more so than in the year that drove so many of us back into our kitchens. This book - her greatest since How to Eat in 1998 - is about embracing the idea of cooking as a series of soothing rituals... The dishes here are as comforting as any Nigella fan could wish for, from Basque burnt cheesecake to fish finger bhorta. And above and beyond the recipes, this is a profound and consoling defence of the pleasures of the kitchen. I can't think of a better companion for these strange times -- Bee Wilson * Sunday Times, *Food Book of the Year* * A rapturous account of wonderful food and a joyful antidote to everything else -- Meera Sodha * Guardian, *Best Cookbooks of 2020* *
