‘Nothing was ever going to come close to Nigel Slater’s “Eat”. An instant classic’ Cookbook of the Year, The Times
This year’s smallest yet fullest cookbook is from Nigel Slater … ‘Eat’ reminds us that he remains the UK cookery writer who breaks new ground as regularly as a mole.’ Rose Prince, Daily Telegraph, ‘Books of the Year’
‘There’s nobody better than Nigel Slater at making cooking seem a relaxed, modest and wholly enjoyable affair … This chunky, easy-going book continues that approach in 400-plus pages which never run out of inspiration’ Daily Mail
‘It may look ‘little’, but this is a great thick chunk of a book, beautifully produced, containing more than 600 recipes’ Carolyn Hart, Telegraph
‘Eat is the most beautiful yet … You could cook from this book for years, needing no other, and the dishes are so delicious you might not even want another’ Elfreda Pownell, Spectator
‘This isn’t a book about practicality, or a new concept, or seasonal eating, even though it embraces all these things. As with his wonderful “Kitchen Diaries”, this book is about what we love to eat – whether it’s ‘thickly cut salmon, generously-spread cream cheese, a golden chewy bagel’ or a salad of apple, ginger and endive. Buy this if not as a present for yourself, at least for your kitchen’ Harper’s Bazaar
‘This is fast food in the best sense; and the bright yellow, cloth-bound volume could quickly become your everyday go-to cookery book’ The Times, ‘Books of the Year’
‘A stout little stocking-filler enticingly bound in saffron cloth … dense with Slater’s signature, hearty-modern recipes, suggestions for variations and appetising photographs. A book to keep in a drawer at work, for mid-week meal inspiration, or for a guilty afternoon exercising your appetite when the boss isn’t looking’ The Sunday Times
‘It's a pleasingly chunky book that's full of simple delicious ideas to inspire us to cook something good when time is short’ Sainsbury’s Magazine

My only very small niggles (which are very small considering how much I've used and like this book!) are that there are almost too many recipes - 600 can be a bit daunting. Also the contents at the start is pretty bad, it seems quite random what's included and so far nothing has been where I expect it to be. The way the books written you have to read the whole recipe to make sure you're getting all the ingredients. Also there are lots if directions like simmer until cooked with no clue if that's 5 minutes or 30, but not really an issue if you cook a bit. Despite these small niggles it really is a great everyday cookbook.
The book itself is also a thing of beauty as it is canvas covered yet still flexible. The photos of food as alluring as all modern cookery books these days but the writing style is fun and light and its very easy to scan through and enjoy even when your not searching for a lunchtime treat. A very tactile object..... and full of great recipes too! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
