5.0 out of 5 stars Food porn, 18 Sep 2010
This is my first Nigella book. I've enjoyed the shows and have tried her recipes from bbc food website before.

I was really pleased, I found it a lovely cookbook to read through and enjoy. Making it the kind of cookbook I like returning to again and again. There are pictures for each dish (which I really appreciate).

I have successful fed a group of friends the lemony salmon with cous cous and the devil (chocolate) cake. Both recipes were easy to follow and produced good results!

I like that there was a wide range of food, I'm pescatarian, although I largely eat veggie and I've not been put off the book. It also has a nice range of healthy dishes (and lots of food to treat yourself with!) which makes it more likely for me personally to find new additions to my meal collection. In addition, there doesn't seem to be a long list of ridiculous specialist ingredients to go on the hunt for - so an accessible cookbook :D

To summarise, it's a beautiful book for food lovers to pour through (hence food porn title), but it is also a book with lots of recipes that are wholesome and satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to get you thinking, 5 Aug 2010
I really enjoyed Quirkology (read if you haven't) and this hasn't disappointed. Well written and really accessible. I have a science background and I love how accessible the science has been made. It is also generally really fascinating how little things can make big differences.

4.0 out of 5 stars good seasonal cooking, 10 July 2009
A nice selection of recipes which makes the most of seasonal products. Wouldn't have thought that pumpkin and apple soup would work, but it was really yummy! A lot of meat recipes so you are limited if you are vegetarian. But it's an enjoyable cookbook to flick through, clear instructions but casual. If you are nervous about quantities such as dash, splash and glug be warned they do use them, but I think it makes for a relaxed and very approchable cookbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars great value and fast service, 10 July 2009
This seems to be the cheapest way to get both these genuinely wii controllers. Didn't realise till after I ordered that they were being delivered from China and was warned that it could take up to 21 days to arrive. But I got it with a week with no problems. Works perfectly well, as you would expect.

3.0 out of 5 stars bargain chill cd, 10 July 2009
If you're not sure what exactly your looking for this isn't a bad place to start. Very chilled album. There are a number of different songs on her, but they blend well so while you're drifting off you're not disturbed by the change in track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Intro to Nick Caves and the Bad seeds, 7 Jun 2009
I had only heard the odd nick cave & bad seeds songs and had enjoyed them. Decided to go for the best of as it had the songs I knew on and I figured it would give me a better idea of what they are like.

Really enjoyed the album, would highly recommend it.
