Nigella Collection: a vibrant new look for Nigella’s classic cookery books.

'This is for those days or evenings when you want to usher a little something out of the kitchen that makes you thrill at the sheer pleasure you’ve conjured up.'

The classic baking bible by Nigella Lawson (‘Queen of the Kitchen’ – Observer Food Monthly). This is the book that helped the world rediscover the joys of baking and kick-started the cupcake revolution, from cake shops around the country to The Great British Bake Off.

How To Be a Domestic Goddess is not about being a goddess, but about feeling like one. Here is the book that feeds our fantasies, understands our anxieties and puts cakes, pies, pastries, preserves, puddings, bread and biscuits back into our own kitchens.

With luscious photography, easy recipes, witty food writing and a beautiful hardback design, this is a book you will treasure for many years as well as a delicious gift for friends and family.

Cakes - from a simple Victoria Sponge to beautiful cupcakes
Biscuits - macaroons, muffins and other indulgent treats
Pies - perfect shortcrust and puff pastry and sweet and savoury recipes
Puddings - crumbles, sponges, trifles and cheesecakes
Chocolate - luscious chocolate recipes for sharing (or not)
Children - simple recipes for baking with kids
Christmas - pudding, Christmas cakes, mince pies... and mulled wine
Bread - finally, the proof that baking bread can be fun, with easy bread recipes
The Domestic Goddess’s Larder - essential preserves, jams, chutneys, curds and pickles that every cook should have

Review:

Those who love comfort food have cause to be grateful for Nigella Lawson's book How to Be a Domestic Goddess. Cause, too, perhaps, to wonder that she isn't the size of a house, since baked comfort foods typically encompass large quantities of butter, cream, eggs, sugar, chocolate, nuts, cream cheese and all the other foodstuffs to which with dreary inevitability attaches the deadly word "sinful". But in Nigella Lawson's hands these dangerous, even feared, substances are transmuted alchemically into the healing balms of the goddess, who presides (perhaps a little ironically) over a harmonious kitchen realm.

The recipes are suitably divine, covering cakes, biscuits, pies, puddings, breads, with special sections on cooking for (and by) children and Christmas. Most are sweet, though there is a choice selection of savoury pies and puddings--Pizza Rustica, Steak and Kidney Pudding, Cornish Pasties. The sweet things range from the airy elegance of Pistachio Macaroons, through the luscious spiciness of Norwegian Cinnamon Buns, to the trailer-trashiness of Coca-Cola Cake.

Nigella Lawson's poise never falters, whether she is discussing serving mulled wine with mince pies ("Don't fight it") or a strange passion-fruit liqueur required for one of her trifles ("the most divinely camp liqueur you could ever come across"). She plays a kind of game with her readers, insisting constantly on her greed, but really invoking our own. What a fascinating book: hints of obsessiveness revealed behind the beautifully projected personality of a laid-back voluptuary.--Robin Davidson

Review:

"What this deliciously reassuring and mouth-watering cookbook shows is that it's not hard to bake a tray of muffins, or a sponge layer cake - but the rewards are high" (Mrs D-Daily (Blog))

"Part of a collection of reissues with stylish redesigned covers... Nigella's millennial masterpiece [is] home baking's sacred text. Not only will you want to eat everything in it, there's a fair chance you'll actually want to cook it too. Most importantly, the recipes are well written and rarely turn out disappointing results." (Guardian)

"Working mothers must give thanks to Nigella... What sets her apart from every other food writer is her empathy with working women and her realism... Every page of How to be a Domestic Goddess is imbued with warmth" (The Times)

"How to Eat was sheer joy... Now she's done it again. If ever baking needed pepping up, Nigella does it" (Daily Express)

"Her prose is as nourishing as her recipes" (Salman Rushdie Observer)
