Cook, Eat, Repeat
Who’s the author? The inimitable Nigella Lawson; author of multiple bestselling, genre-defining cookbooks, charismatic host of numerous television series, much-loved columnist, and household name around the world.
What’s it about? Cook, Eat, Repeat is a blend of delicious new recipes and captivating narrative essays; this is as much a book to curl up on the couch with as it is to prop open on the kitchen counter.
Nigella’s writing has always been characterised by her totally unique voice and her witty, evocative prose. Far more than instruction manuals, books like How to Eat, Feast and At My Table are both enlightening and life enhancing. Cook, Eat, Repeat continues in that vein and contains over fifty new recipes celebrating some of Nigella’s favourite ingredients, with chapters including ‘A is for Anchovy’, ‘A Vegan Feast’, and the superbly titled ‘How to Invite People for Dinner Without Hating Them (or Yourself)’.
Recipes we love: Spaghetti with Chard and Anchovies, Oxtail Bourguignon, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake.
Perfect for: Anyone who’s followed Nigella’s career from How to Eat to her much-lauded lifestyle columns in Sunday Times Style will find this book engaging, nourishing, and thoroughly enchanting. Meanwhile, those who might be newer to her work but who are passionate about food and food writing will be equally enthralled by Nigella’s wonderful prose and mouthwatering recipes.
