What a beautiful book, it looks just wonderful and inside another year of superb food writing and recipes. What I love about the diary format is that you can read Nigel Slater’s “October” or you can dream about the fresh foods of summer. You can cook the recipes or learn how to vary them. It’s a book to learn from and cook from, a book to savour and return to – in short my vote for 2012’s best food book.

Synopsis

The Kitchen Diaries II A Year of Simple Cooking by Nigel Slater

The Kitchen Diaries was one of the most acclaimed food books of recent times. With Kitchen Diaries II: A Year of Simple Suppers, Nigel Slater returns to this inspiring structure - recording the food he buys, prepares, eats and shares throughout the year. With over 300 recipes, many from his hugely successful TV series, Simple Suppers, Kitchen Diaries II is full of classic Slater ideas, from a cider loaf to start the new year, to an indulgent chicken and leek pie or a simple, fresh salad of pears and bitter leaves.

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