Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 16 December 2010.

Shortlisted for the Galaxy Food & Drink Book of the Year 2010.

Expansive, practical, delicious and quite probably the cookery book of the year. Kitchen is a big, compendious, comfortable, informative and utterly engaging book, it brings us feel-good food for cooks and eaters, whether Express-style and exotic-easy during the week, or leisurely and luxuriating (in the spirit of How to be a Domestic Goddess and Feast) at weekends or for occasions. With a wealth of photographs from the instructive to the glorious, and accompanied by a major BBC TV series it offers feel-good food for cooks and eaters.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Nigella shows that she can still cut the mustard, with her latest book to accompany her recent BBC television series. Where the book scores over the programmes is that you can skip the flouncing around and remember that she is a jolly good cook! Her recipes are not daunting in the slightest and many are aimed at people who just want a little inspiration for midweek family suppers, or who need to put food on the table in a hurry. These are recipes to make entertaining relaxing, but still look great – Indian-rubbed lamb chops with butternut, rocket and pine nut salad – and deeply indulgent puds, like mint chocolate Grasshopper Pie – and possibly the best chocolate brownie recipe in the world.

Synopsis

Kitchen: Recipes from the Heart of the Home by Nigella Lawson

Divided into two parts -- Kitchen Quandaries and Kitchen Comforts -- Nigella gives us the wherewithal to tackle any situation and satisfy all nourishment needs. But real cooking is often about leftovers, too, so here one recipe can lead to another… from ham hocks to pea soup and pasties, from chicken to Chinatown salad. This isn’t just about being thrifty but about demonstrating how recipes come about, and giving new inspiration for last-minute meals and souped-up storecupboard suppers. As well as offering the reader a mouthwatering array of new recipes, both comforting and exciting – from clams with chorizo to Guinness gingerbread, from Asian braised beef to flourless chocolate lime cake, from Pasta alla Genovese to Venetian carrot cake – Nigella rounds up her kitchen kit must-haves (telling us, too, what equipment we don’t need) and highlights individual ingredients – both basic essentials and modern-day life-savers. But above all, she reminds the reader how much pleasure there is to be had in real food, and in reclaiming the traditional rhythms of the kitchen, as she cooks to the beat of the heart of the home, creating simple recipes to make life less complicated.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
