Nigella Lawson is the author of bestselling books, How To Eat, How to Be a Domestic Goddess, Nigella Bites, Forever Summer, Feast and Nigella Express, which, together with her successful TV series - on BBC 2, Channel 4, as well as the American Food Network - have made hers a household name around the world. She is a contributor to the New York Times and lives in London with her family.

Book Description

Hailed by many as their cookbook of 1998, if not the decade. How To Eat is far more than just an imaginative collection of over 350 uncomplicated, delecious recipes. Nigella Lawson combines a refreshingly down-to-earth practically with a passion for food and a writer's ability to find just the right words to evoke the taste of a succulent roast chicken or a home-made custard.

Her excellent advice on how to organise your kitchen (and your life) for the minimum of fuss is interspersed with moments of sheer, unadulterated pleasure as she pauses to relish what she is preparing to eat. Now available as a high-quality, good-value trade paperback, readers will be able to buy two copies: one for the kitchen, one for the bed-side table. The reviews of the hardback were stunning: 'The one book you have to buy this year' Daily Mail.

My book of the decade. I love this book: its prose, its intelligence and, above all, its workable, soul-warming recipes, Nigel Slater.

Mrs Beeton for the new millennium, Lawson has written a bible for aspiring gastronomes. Dividing it into thematic sections from 'Basics', to 'Dinner' and 'Feeding Babies and Small Children', hits the mark. And it opens with vital basics and often dismissed basics such as stock, sauces and Victoria Sponge. It offers evocative menus from basic, no effort Saturday lunches to 'Serious - No Hostages' meals. But whatever the occasion Lawson always seems to come up with the perfect idea, taking into account such considerations as the likelihood of preparing Sunday lunch with a stinking hangover, or not wanting to leave the scene of seduction mid-dinner to whisk zabagione for pudding. So, the contents are both practical and inspirational, haute-gastronomie for real people. (Kirkus UK)

Nigella’s 2005 book Feast: Food to Celebrate Life inspired Nigella Feasts, which debuted on Food Network in fall 2006. The Domestic Goddess returned in her second Food Network series, Nigella Express, launched in fall 2007 in conjunction with the release of Nigella Express. American audiences also know Nigella as host of Forever Summer with Nigella, her popular cooking/lifestyle series that aired on Style, and Nigella Bites, which aired on E! Entertainment Television and Style.

In July 2003, Nigella launched Nigella Lawson’s Living Kitchen, a range of kitchen items designed in collaboration with Sebastian Conran, to widespread acclaim in the U.S.

She originated the restaurant column in The Spectator and wrote the food column for British Vogue for several years. Nigella also wrote a bi-monthly food column for The New York Times Dining In, Dining Out section.

Hailed as Author of the Year by the 2001 British Book Awards, Nigella was also named Bon Appétit magazine’s 2002 "Tastemaker of the Year." How to Eat was honored as the 1998 British Books Awards Illustrated Book of the Year, while How to Be a Domestic Goddess was named Cookery Book of the Year by the Guild of Food Writers in 2001.
