I enjoy watching Nigel on TV, and appreciate his unpretentious style of cooking, so I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to get round to buying this book! It arrived a few days ago, and having immediately read it pretty much cover to cover, I've already cooked several things from it. What's good about it? Most of the recipes are for two (not all of us have a family or friends to feed every day, and this saves me from having to work out how much is half an egg and suchlike, but the quantities can be easily multiplied up to cater for 4 or more); and most of the ingredients are either already in my fridge or cupboards, or easily available without having to hunt out specialist shops; and the recipes are simple and delicious - some may take a little longer than 30 minutes, but not much.
Some of the suggestions may well be obvious (such as the ideas for thing to eat with rice, or things to put on toast), but when time is short, most of us have a tendency to resort to the same limited repertoire. This book will enable you to vary that repertoire without feeling you're spending all evening in the kitchen. A refreshing "nudge" when you're out of ideas!
Some ingredients are a bit esoteric - but I have got enough confidence now to chuck something else in - or nothing - when that happens. On the other hand I am putting together a good stock of things - herbs, sauces etc - that are now always to hand, as a result of the recipes I have tried so far, plus there is a list in the book of good things to have to hand.
I was more a 'ready meal' man until now - but now I am starting to experiment with the recipes.. and, after one turned out to be absolutely superb from a taste point of view, I will try at least one new recipes each week and probably more, depending on how rigorous I am in shopping for ingredients - but I have started to store more meat in the freezer, which makes it easier for some of the meat-based dishes.
I can highly recommend the book.
But the book itself could be better presented really - It looks quite dull, and I would have loved to have seen it made more interesting with some pictures of the finished products be they photos or even sketches - just to brighten up the presentation.
But Nigel Slater is a great favourite of mine so I wont be parting with it any time soon.
I find a lot of cook books procedural. Like car maintenance manuals. You do this, then that, in exactly the right order using exactly the right parts, and exactly the right tools. Where is the love in that? This book is different. This is a written testament to Nigel Slater's love of cooking and his simple, no-nonsense approach to food. It's also easy to follow, and helped me make some amazing things with an absolute minimum of skill and only 6 or so ingredients. The lists of good things to do with certain ingredients are inspiring and a good aid to adapting recipes or coming up with your own.
Whenever I fancy cooking something new I flick though this book and always find wonderful ideas.
If you only own one cook book this should be it.
