From Nigel Slater, one of our best-loved food writers, a beautiful and inspiring companion volume to his bestselling Kitchen Diaries.
"For years now I have kept notebooks, with scribbled shopping lists and early drafts of recipes in them. These notes form the basis of this second volume of The Kitchen Diaries. More than a diary, this is a collection of small kitchen celebrations, be it a casual, beer-fuelled supper of warm flatbreads with pieces of grilled lamb scattered with toasted pine kernels and blood-red pomegranate seeds or a quiet moment contemplating a bowl of soup and a loaf of bread."

In anticipation of the imminent arrival of Seville oranges I have been looking today at Nigel's marmalade recipe. It is different to my usual recipe but I am going to try his method this year. Picking another page at random, he describes walking to Bermondsey market on a Saturday morning in May where he finds young carrots which he prepares in a herb sauce. Just reading the words makes me long for the days when young carrots appear. I have also just read the recipe for spiced bread & butter pudding with fried bananas which I'll be cooking this evening to use up some left over bread and bananas. Then there is blackberry ice cream cake; broad bean, feta & spinach pie; mozzarella salad with tomato crumbs (a sort of pizza without the pastry base); orange & lemon parfait; passion fruit creams. It is a bit like being a child in a sweetshop working out what to try next.
There is something very comforting about Nigel's approach to food - good ingredients, simply cooked to bring out the best in their flavour. Just wonderful.
