How To Eat

How To Eat

The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food

By  Nigella Lawson

'I Love Nigella Lawson's writing and I love her recipes, ' Delia Smith First paperback publication - in a high-quality trade paperback edition - of Nigella Lawson's hugely successful cookbook. Over 45, 000 copies sold in hardback.

Hailed by many as their cookbook of 1998, if not the decade. 'How To Eat' is far more than just an imaginative collection of over 350 uncomplicated, delicious recipes. Nigella Lawson combines a refreshingly down-to-earth practicality with a passion for food and a writer's ability to find just the right words to evoke the taste of a succulent roast chicken or a home-made custard. Her excellent advice on how to organise your kitchen (and your life) for the minimum of fuss is interspersed with moments of sheer, unadulterated pleasure as she pauses to relish what she is preparing to eat. Now available as a high-quality, good-value trade paperback, readers will be able to buy two copies: one for the kitchen, one for the bedside table. The reviews of the hardback were stunning: 'The one book you have to buy this year'. Daily Mail. 'My book of the decade. I love this book: its prose, its intelligence and, above all, its workable, soul-warming receipes'. Nigel Slater.
