Product description

Amazon Review

Nigella Lawson has long been among the most realistic as well as the most readable of writers on food. Her description of a three-star dinner really is a good second best to actually eating it yourself. But equally she knows the inestimable value of a bacon sandwich on sliced white. This wonderful book combines both of these talents as she sets out on the ambitious task to impart no less than "the pleasures and principles of good food".

The book is neatly divided into categories--cooking in advance, weekend lunch, low fat and so on--each with its own passionate and intelligent introductory essay. The recipes are straightforwardly presented and the occasional school-mistress tone--"You must keep your stock in the freezer," or "I loathe the acrid dustiness of standard-issue sherry"--is always justified by its implication of an entirely proper seriousness and her endless common sense. But most of all Lawson is a greedy eater who knows about food and can write like an angel. "I hate the new-age voodoo about eating," she declares. "The notion that foods are either harmful or healing, that a good diet makes you a good person." Hurrah! How to Eat is the perfect book for anyone who knows that food is more than fuel. --Nick Wroe --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Nigella Lawson is one of the best and most influential of British food writers ... The staple cookbook for a whole generation" (Ruth Rogers, co-author of The River Café Cookbook)

"My kitchen bible to this day... You made me realise that every meal is a celebration. You didn’t teach me how to cook. You taught me how to eat." (Nigel Slater Observer)

"How to eat, how to cook, how to write: I want two copies of this book, one to reference in the kitchen and one to read in bed." (Yotam Ottolenghi)

"A classic of the genre: a book that easily gathers both experiences and novice cooks under its wing, with something to teach them all, and a witty confiding manner as it does so. Frankly, no kitchen is complete without." (The Irish Independent)

"How to Eat may just be the best cookery book ever" (Daily Telegraph)
