This book was a bit of a disappointment. I decided to buy it because I had been a little disappointed with Nigella's latest book - Kitchen - and had read that this one was a little different. I was hoping I'd fall in love all over again with Nigella. Well I didn't. Sure this book has some kind of Mediterranean / Middle Eastern vibe to it, which I love, but I flicked through it and felt completely uninspired. It's been sitting in my bookcase ever since. I felt that for most of the recipes I already had a better version or way of doing it. I didn't really care for the soups, ice creams (I have a tiny kitchen and a tiny freezer - I don't bother with ice cream), and alcoholic drinks chapters (Nigella seems to love her booze). I also find that there aren't enough pictures and that there are very few vegetarian and cold/raw recipes. It's summer after all. A few breakfast recipes would have been appreciated but there are none.
The idea - forever summer - is a great one and I feel like the book felt short. It could have been so much better. I guess Nigella's style just isn't for me.

I have seen Nigella for the first time on US TV. How so ? I am French and lived there for a year. Each time Mrs Lawson was on TV I couldn't help but watch this amazing cooking show. It is a real pleasure to see someone who dares to experiment (nothing against traditional recipes though). I haven't tried any of the original stuff yet, but as a fan of southern cooking, I am definitely going to try the recipes of this one. I am looking forward to the Margarita Ice Cream and the Raspberries in Chardonnay Jelly.

It is well known that in my eyes Nigella can do no wrong - until this book.

I have bought every single one of her books and watched every series on TV, but this was just so wide of the mark.

Thankfully she has bounced back to her usual sparkling form and calm has been restored in her books and TV series.

I would recommend that you buy this book ONLY based on watching the series not because you assume as its Nigella it will be fabulous.
