About the Author

'I love Nigella Lawson's writing and I love her recipes' - Delia Smith 'There's an intelligence to the way she writes and she expects a certain intelligence of her readers as well' - Nigel Slater "I am unapologetic about being a home cook rather than a chef. Real cooking, the sort that goes on in homes, does not have to be tricksy or difficult. A dish of chicken poached with leeks and carrots definitely isn't fancy. But it tastes good, and feels essentially nourishing, to both body and soul, to cook and eat.

I want you to feel that I'm there with you, in the kitchen, as you cook. My books are the conversations we might be having." Nigella Lawson has written nine bestselling cookery books, including the classics How To Eat and How to Be A Domestic Goddess - the book that launched a thousand cupcakes. These books, her TV series and her Quick Collection apps, have made her a household name around the world. In 2014 she was voted Best Food Personality at the Observer Food Monthly Awards.

"Heartwarming, passionate, informed, refreshingly uncomplicated and full of ideas, Feast is destined to become a classic like How to Eat" * Mrs D-Daily (Blog) *
"The real successor to How to Eat, a volume that every right-thinking person cherishes and consults regularly... Feast is just as entertaining and divulgent - and it works too, both as a practical manual and an engrossing read" * Evening Standard *
"As clever and inspiring as ever" -- Jeanette Winterson * Evening Standard *
"An absolute essential to any kitchen regardless of whether you're a novice or a pro. While the focus is on festive food, it is also filled with some brilliant everyday recipes. So whether you want something a bit different on a weeknight or want to create something delicious and spectacular for a special occasion then there will be something in this book for you." -- Amazon reviewer, L. Silver
"I absolutely adore this book.... Nigella not only gives you recipes, but talks to you and encourages and grows your love of cooking through the pages. A wonderful celebration of food and cooking that I will cherish for a long, long time" -- Amazon reviewer, "hilreid83"
