Book Description

Nigella is now not only the best and most glamorous young home cook in Britain, and a great cookery writer, she's also become a household name. Her first short series on Channel 4 had over 2 million viewers and propelled her from success into stardom. How to Eat sold spectacularly on the back of the first unheralded 5-part series.

Nigella Bites is a must-have for every viewer and all her fans. Some recipes are based on her popular Vogue columns, others are new and different, and all are characteristic of Nigella and the ethos of the TV series - uncomplicated, original, fresh, and perfect for the way we live today. They're easy to produce after a busy day at the office, fun to linger over at weekends or to make with the kids, delectable to read about, dreamy to look at and delicious to eat.

They include Late Breakfasts, Party Food, TV Dinners, Trailer Trash , Big Lunches, Indoor Picnics, and other delights. Nigella wants her readers and her viewers to enjoy eating and cooking. With her, how could anyone resist!

      Comment on this review

      Following the runaway success of her previous cookbooks and TV series, 'domestic goddess' Nigella Lawson offers this volume to accompany her latest TV fare. With sections such as 'All-Day Breakfast', 'Comfort Food', and 'Rainy Days', it is, like the TV programmes, about indulgence, a guide to pigging out glamorously, with maximum flavour, minimum hassle and guilt. Lawson speaks for the attitudes and aspirations of an era; her enthusiatic asides, anticipatory grins and almost-perfect looks are a major part of the appeal. At first glance this might just seem an inspirational volume - tasty dishes on all levels - but closer inspection reveals that, although it is no step-by-step bible, the recipes are clear and easy to follow, the photos precise enough to be useful. Read, drool and tuck in. (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.

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."
