Award winning writer Nigel Slater has gathered together a superb collection of recipes that warm, satisfy and please. "Real Cooking" is not about fancy stocks, sauces and spun sugar baskets, but understanding the little things that can turn a simple supper into something sublime. "This is real cooking. The roast potato that sticks to the roasting tin; the crouton from the salad that has soaked up the mustardy dressing - these are the things that make something worth eating. And worth cooking." - Nigel more

Review Text

'There is too much talk of cooking being an art or a science - we are only making ourselves something to eat.' Slater's no-nonsense approach reflects his irreverent attitude to food; yet his new book is full of superb, straightforward recipes that warm, satisfy and please. Real cooking in Slater's view is easy - it involves using good, fresh ingredients and understanding the little details (like ripe, luscious tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil) that turn a simple supper into something memorable. The design and photography are terrific too. (Kirkus UK)show more
