‘What and how we cook can make our lives easier, make us feel better and more alive’
Whatever the occasion, food – in the making and the eating – should always be pleasurable. Simply Nigella taps into the rhythms of our cooking lives, with recipes that are uncomplicated, relaxed and yet always satisfying.
The beautifully produced, wonderfully filled cookbooks just keep rolling and this one is another stunner just in time for Christmas,with glorious food photography.by Keiko Oikawa.........
From quick and calm suppers (Miso Salmon, Cauliflower & Cashew Nut Curry) to stress-free ideas when catering for a crowd (Chicken Traybake with Bitter Orange & Fennel), or the instant joy of bowlfood for cosy nights on the sofa (Thai Noodles with Cinnamon and Prawns), here is food guaranteed to make everyone feel good.
Whether you need to create some breathing space at the end of a long week (Asian-Flavoured Short Ribs), indulge in a sweet treat (Lemon Pavlova, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pots) or wake up to a strength-giving breakfast (Toasty Olive Oil Granola), Nigella’s new cookbook is filled with recipes destined to become firm favourites.
I recommend her Chicken traybake with bitter orange & fennel and also the Criss-cross potatoes, the two recipes I have tried so far.
