Recipes that are delicious and that always work!

You know these recipes are delicious because if I didn't think that they were fabulous . . . I wouldn't be showing them to you. You can also be sure that these recipes work for the same reason! The rest is simply a matter of taste.

Nigel Slater - The Kitchen Diaries II

Last night I went to bed with Nigel Slater . . . and I have news for you . . . tonight I'm going to do it again.  YES!  My copy of Kitchen Diaries ll arrived through my letter box yesterday and I am in love.  Just look at that cover with all of it's tasty looking splodges. 

Nigel . . . Nigel . . . Nigel . . . you sure know the way to a woman's heart.

From Nigel's page:

A Kitchen Chronicle. My latest book and the second volume of The Kitchen Diaries.
A collection of notes, essays, jottings and recipes compiled over the last three or four years. As you might expect from the title, this is a very personal book, written and photographed in my own kitchen. Not a television tie-in, but many of the recipes are those from the BBC1 series Simple Suppers and Simple Cooking.

Over 200 photographs of things I have cooked at home over the last few years, taken as always by Jonathan Lovekin.

"His words touch something deep and primitive: appetite. A gorgeous book in the pure sense." Sunday Telegraph


You won't regret it.  Then you can go to bed with him too.

Note:  I bought my own book and was not paid or reimbursed for anything I have said here today.  I just love Nigel Slater . . . end of. He cooks like I cook, and like I want to eat.
