Over a hundred relaxed, achievable and delicious recipes; enjoy the food that Nigella shares day-to-day at her table.
‘Our lives are formed by memories, and the focus of mine is the food I’ve cooked and the people I’ve cooked for, the people who have sat at my table, as well as the other tables I’ve eaten on, from the blue formica of my childhood, to the mottled zinc that is the nexus of my life now. The food is this book, that comes from my kitchen, is eaten at my table, and will be eaten at yours, is the food I have always loved cooking. It doesn't require technique, dexterity or expertise, none of which I lay claim to. Life is complicated: cooking doesn't have to be.' – Nigella Lawson
Nigella Lawson is a champion of the home cook and her new book celebrates the food she loves to cook for friends and family. The recipes are warming, comforting, and inspirational, from new riffs on classic dishes – including Chicken Fricassee and Sticky Toffee Pudding – to adventures in a host of new dishes and ingredients, from Aubergine Fattet to White Miso Hummus.
AT MY TABLE includes dishes to inspire all cooks and eaters, from Hake with Bacon, Peas and Cider to Indian-Spiced Chicken and Potato Traybake and Chilli Mint Lamb Cutlets; plus a host of colourful vegetable dishes, like Eastern Mediterranean Chopped Salad and Carrots and Fennel with Harissa.
No Nigella cookbook would be complete without sweet treats, and AT MY TABLE is no exception, with Emergency Brownies, White Chocolate Cheesecake and a Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Marmalade and Crème Fraiche set to become family favourites.
As Nigella writes, ‘happiness is best shared’ and the food in this book will be served and savoured at your own kitchen table just as it is at hers.
"Nigella is the voice of reason in the food madness that surrounds us" -- Katy McGuinness * Irish Independent *
"Lawson's genius is in offering dishes that you want to cook immediately (and that you know she cooks all the time - the recipes just read that way), in the most elegant prose. A gal who writes better than Elizabeth David and can tell you what to eat on a Friday night in front of the telly? That's my kind of food writer" -- Diana Henry * Daily Telegraph *
"This book is packed with ideas for meals that can be easily rustled up from what you have in the fridge or find in your local food shop. Despite the simplicity, though, each recipe features a unique Nigella twist" -- Bianca Barratt * Evening Standard *
"Nigella Lawson provides a selection of recipes that will inspire even the most jaded cook to try something new" * Bookseller *
"While her last cookbook, Simply Nigella, favoured a pared-back cooking style, her latest, At My Table, is bursting with what will be instant Nigella classics - not to mention encouraging late-night visits to the fridge for leftovers. This is a book for those who see food as sheer pleasure" -- Jessica Callan * Good Housekeeping *
