Another Suberb Nigel!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tender: Volume I, A cook and his vegetable patch (Hardcover)
Like some of the other reviewers I too have all his books.
A new Nigel Slater book is something to be anticipated in my house. This is another lovely book, written in a similar tone to The Kitchen Diaries, but with quite a bit more.
He covers many vegetables, what they are, a gardeners view (I so want to grow my own veggies!), a cooks view and then of course there are the actual recipes. They are mostly for savoury dishes, but there are a few sweet ones too - I have just finished icing his carrot and walnut cake with mascarpone and orange icing, gorgeous. Of course it's a superb read too.
Can hardly wait for Volume II next year about fruit!
