Nigel Slater Book and Novel

Nigel Slater - Author


Nigel Slater is one of Britain's most highly regarded food writers. His beautifully written prose, warm personality and unpretentious, easy-to-follow recipes have won him a huge following.

He is the author of a collection of much loved cookery books: Real Fast Food (1992), The 30 Minute Cook (1994), Real Good Food (1995) and Real Cooking (1997). He writes an award winning weekly column in the Observer and edits their Food Monthly supplement. His weekly Observer column is syndicated internationally and he is a regular contributor to Sainsbury's The Magazine.

Real Fast Food was shortlisted for the André Simon Award. Real Cooking' was shortlisted for a Glenfiddich Award and The 30-Minute Cook was shortlisted for both the Glenfiddich and Julia Child Awards. He has won the Cookery Writer of the Year Award, Media Personality of the Year and the Glenfiddich Trophy.

Real Food, published in September 1998, accompanied an eight-part Channel 4 TV series, and was based upon the eight ingredients about which he is especially passionate. Real Food was awarded the 1999 Glenfiddich Award for Best Visual Work (photography by Jonathan Lovekin and art direction by Nigel Slater), and Nigel was also awarded the 1999 Best Newspaper Cookery Journalist. Appetite by Nigel Slater was a hardback bestseller in autumn 2000 and won the André Simon Cookbook of the Year Award.
