Who's the author? Britain's favourite domestic goddess, Nigella Lawson is the author or eleven bestselling cookery books, from How to be a Domestic Goddess to How to Eat. Nigella's books and inspiring writing, along with her TV series, have made her a global household name.
What's it about? Marking 20 years since its original publication in 1998, Nigella's How to Eat is celebrated with a brand new Vintage Classics edition. A culinary bible of delicious prose, How to Eat is less a set of strict recipes and more a book about cooking and eating in its truest and simplest form – for nourishment and pleasure. Inspiring a generation to feel at home in the kitchen, Nigella shows cooks how to be at ease with adapting and experimenting recipes to suit their own needs, whether organising a last-minute supper or planning a weekend brunch.
How to Eat is still as much a kitchen companion as a book to savour in bed, filled with prose that dispenses both delicious evocations of sensual pleasure and sage advice. Complete with a new introduction from Jeanette Winterson, this Vintage edition cements Nigella's place among the superstars of the culinary world.
Perfect for: Those who enjoy reading about food as much as they love cooking and eating it; Nigella fans seeking an update on a classic; home-cooks looking to change their approach to kitchen drudgery.
