‘There’s nobody better than Nigel Slater at making cooking seem a relaxed, modest and wholly enjoyable affair … This chunky, easy-going book continues that approach in 400-plus pages which never run out of inspiration’ Daily Mail
‘This isn’t a book about practicality, or a new concept, or seasonal eating, even though it embraces all these things. As with his wonderful Kitchen Diaries, this book is about what we love to eat – whether it’s ‘thickly cut salmon, generously-spread cream cheese, a golden chewy bagel’ or a salad of apple, ginger and endive. Buy this if not as a present for yourself, at least for your kitchen’ Harper’s Bazaar
‘It’s a pleasingly chunky book that’s full of simple delicious ideas to inspire us to cook something good when time is short’ Sainsbury’s Magazine
