Review

'Nigel is a bloody genius' Jamie Oliver

'The greatest cookery writer of them all' Guardian

‘The best food writers combine beauty with practicality, and no one does it more elegantly than Nigel Slater’ Jane Shilling, Daily Mail – BOOKS OF THE YEAR

'The pick of the bunch…bubbling with ideas, suggestions, hints and personal opinions that genuinely help you to make your own mind up about how and what to cook' The Times

'He's a genius' Matthew Fort, Guardian

‘Slater remains the reigning champion, a writer incapable of uninspiring sentences' Daily Express

‘No one writes more temptingly about food' Independent

From the Inside Flap

Includes recipes from BBC TV series Simple Suppers and Simple Cooking.

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."

This book showcases Nigel's beautiful writing about food and would be a joy to read for that alone. There is a particularly lovely section describing his choice of wood for a new kitchen table - the food part is relegated to just a few lines at the end of the entry. But of course his musings on food are accompanied by recipes.

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.

This book is a treasure! To be honest I haven't even tried any of the recipes, too busy reading Nigel's commentary which is witty and comforting at the same time. Honestly, he is the only chef that I can watch on tv that actually makes me want cook those fantastic dishes he prepares. Happy reading and cooking!!

Excellent book. Wanted it for years then got it dirt cheap off a 2nd handseller.

What a cook book, more like a cookery Bible. It is full of the most fantastic things and fantastic ideas. Written in such a way that you think Nigel is beside you helping you along. If someone is setting up home, get them this, and it will be the only book in their kitchen. Brilliant.
