9780007241156: The Kitchen Diaries: A Year in the Kitchen with Nigel Slater

Following the success of `Real Food' and `Appetite', this is the tenth book from Nigel Slater, the award-winning food writer and author of the bestselling autobiography, `Toast'.`The food in "The Kitchen Diaries" is simply what I eat at home. The stuff I make for myself, for friends and family, for visitors and for parties, for Sunday lunch and for snacks. These are meals I make when I stop work, or when I am having mates over or when I want to surprise, seduce or show off. This is what I cook when I'm feeling energetic, lazy, hungry or late. It is what I eat when I'm not phoning out for pizza or going for a curry. This is the food that makes up my life, both the Monday to Friday stuff and that for weekends and special occasions.'`Much of it is what you might call fast food, because I still believe that life is too short to spend all day at the stove, but some of it is unapologetically long, slow cooking. But without exception every single recipe in this book is a doddle to cook. A walk in the park. A piece of p***.'`Fast food, slow food, big eats, little eats, quick pasta suppers, family roasts and even Christmas lunch. It is simply my stuff, what I cook and eat, every day. Nigel's food - for you.'

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Nigel Slater

"His writing could not be more palate-cleansing... his acidic riffs put you in mind of Nick Hornby, Martin Amis and Philip Larkin all at the same time."
The New York Times

"Nigel is a genius."
—Jamie Oliver, author of Jamie’s Kitchen, The Naked Chef, and Happy Days with the Naked Chef

"unpretentious, delicious"
—Nigella Lawson, author of How to Be a Domestic Goddess

"The recipes sound uniformly delicious, rustic and tasty...but they’re also straight forward: easy to follow, easy to cook."
—Independent on Sunday

"joyous"
—Guardian Weekend

"Slater wants his food, above all, to be uplifting. As a cookbook, The Kitchen Diaries succeeds brilliantly."
—William Leith, Observer (London)

"it's a collection of scrumptious recipes, somehow written in such a way as to make your mouth genuinely water."
—Rebecca Seal, Observer (London)
