how to eat. nigella lawson, 5 April 2003
have read & re-read this book. from basics through to feeding small children and hungry adults nigella never disappoints. you are kind of left feeling like your best friend just popped over for a chat after reading any of her books, but especially "how to eat". nigella treats the reader as an intellectual human being, and fills you with confidence in the kitchen, rather than the stuffy, pompus and patronising 'qualified' chefs that you see on tv. nigella states that her particular qualifications are in being an eater, therefore it stands to reason that if you enjoy eating, you are going to want to cook well. this formula, along with nigella's enthusiasm and mouth-watering narration works so well, you want to cook just about everything all at once!
