In 1998 I was given a copy of Nigella Lawson’s How to Eat to review, it was love at first sight, I have it still, crusted and battered but still one of my very favourite cookery books. Cookery books like these are rare but then I saw Vanessa Kimbell’s Prepped and at last have found another kitchen companion for life - the recipes so tempting and right, the approach to flavour and preparation full of sense and new ideas – and like How to Eat you want to cook your way through the book and back again.
