The expansive narrative and the rich feast of recipes make this a natural successor to Nigella’s classic first book - a kind of ‘How to Eat… everyday’ for the twenty-first century, with a wealth of photographs from the instructive to the glorious - and a tie-in major BBC TV series in the autumn.

A big, compendious, comfortable, informative and utterly engaging book, Kitchen 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. 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 store cupboard 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.

    Comment on this review

    "Her touch is light and whimsical, yet eminently practical" -- Sybil Kapoor Country Life "It's another blockbuster with a wide range of hearty and wholesome family recipes... Nice touches are notes on preparing ahead, freezing and in some cases advice on how to turn leftovers into salads and soups" Daily Express

    Nigella Lawson

    Nigella Lawson, food enthusiast, television personality and journalist, is the bestselling author of eight books: Nigella Express: Good Food Fast, Feast: Food to Celebrate Life, Nigella Fresh, Nigella Bites, How to Be a Domestic Goddess, How to Eat, which have sold in excess of 6 million copies worldwide, and Nigella Christmas: Food Family Friends Festivities. Her groundbreaking iPhone App debuted in April 2010 and her new book, NIGELLA KITCHEN Recipes From the Heart of the Home, which accompanies her television series of the same name seen on Food Network, is a return to her signature focus on feel-good food for the way we eat today, published by Hyperion in October 2010.

    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.

    Nigella was Deputy Literary Editor of The Sunday Times before pursuing a successful freelance career. She has written for a variety of magazines and newspapers, including The Sunday Times, Evening Standard, Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Observer, Times Magazine and in the U.S. for Gourmet and Bon Appétit magazines. 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. Nigella Bites received the WH Smith Book Awards 2002 Lifestyle Book of the Year, with the cooking series based on the book winning the Gold Ladle for Best Television Food Show from the World Food Media Awards in 2001.

    In 1992, Nigella married the journalist and broadcaster John Diamond. John was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1997 and died in 2001. They had two children together, Cosima and Bruno. Nigella remarried in 2003 and lives in London with husband, Charles Saatchi, and her children.
