“I am neither a chef nor a performer: this is the food I cook, the food I eat.” – Nigella Lawson
Nigella Bites accompanies a forthcoming 10-part television series – a culinary and visual feast of recipes from the best and most glamorous young home-cook in Britain and a great cookery writer.
Nigella Lawson’s passion for food and her refreshingly down-to-earth practicality breathe life into this beautiful cookbook, illustrated with full-colour photographs and recipes from her forthcoming television series. Like the series, Nigella Bites is a celebration of food, perfect for modern cooks, with recipes to suit many tastes, timetables and moods, and all characteristic of Nigella’s ethos: uncomplicated, original, fresh, and perfect for the way we live today. They’re easy to produce after a busy day at the office, fun to linger over at weekends or to make with the kids, delectable to read about, dreamy to look at and delicious to eat.
In 10 chapters, each based on a different theme and episode of the television series – including All-Day Breakfasts, TV Dinners, Party Girl food, Rainy Day fare, Trashy food, Slow-Cook Weekends and Templefood – Nigella Lawson gives us her marvellous recipes, along with her thoughts on modern life and cooking, offering encouragement and wise advice. Nigella wants her readers to enjoy the pleasures of eating and cooking. With her, how could anyone resist?

Nigella Bites--the title is taken from Nigella Lawson's Style Network cooking show of the same name--is the third book from British Vogue food editor and New York Times food columnist Nigella Lawson, a force of nature all her own. Her other books include How to Eat and How to Be a Domestic Goddess. Fans of the TV show will find all these easy-to-follow recipes familiar, and the book is even designed with pages for note taking at the end of each section.
Nigella Bites is divided into chapters that include "All-Day Breakfast," "Comfort Food," "TV Dinners," "Party Girl," "Rainy Days," "Trashy," "Legacy," "Suppertime," "Slow-Cooked Weekend," and "Templefood." "Templefood" refers to the "body as a temple," and Lawson shares what she calls "restorative" recipes, like the raw egg and brandy hangover cure called Prairie Oyster. Hot and Sour Soup and Gingery Hot Duck Salad are also present and accounted for.
It's all self-referential. Lawson (her chapter introductions are printed in 26-point type for the hard of seeing) holds nothing back about what she likes, how she overindulges, how she works her lifestyle into the kitchen and onto the table. It's encouragement by example, with a practical twist. You aren't going to spend hours in the kitchen midweek. That's a reward you save for the weekend. But there's plenty of deliciousness to be had midweek as well, and Lawson's there to help you along your way. --Schuyler IngleAbout the Author:
