'I Love Nigella Lawson's writing and I love her recipes, ' Delia Smith First paperback publication - in a high-quality trade paperback edition - of Nigella Lawson's hugely successful cookbook. Over 45, 000 copies sold in hardback.

'The Great British Culinary Renaissance we hear so much about may have done many things - given us extra virgin olive oil, better restaurants and gastroporn - but what is hasn't done is teach us how to cook'. How To Eat is a book that does: part recipe collection, part culinary manifesto and part evocation of the pleasures of eating, it has hundreds of recipes and menus, but more than that, it encourages you to see cooking in context and, most important, to acquire a real understanding.

It covers kitchen basics, children's food, everyday cooking, weekend lunch, the last-minute dinner party - and much more. But at its heart, it is about a feeling for food, a book to be read as well as cooked from. How To Eat is a book that wrests cooking back from the professional kitchens and the trendy menus to give confidence back to the ordinary, unexpert home cook. Unique, invaluable, comprehensive, this is a celebration of good food and an utterly modern kitchen vade mecum.

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 2013 she was one of the Observer Food Monthly's ten Chefs of the Decade.

Industry Reviews

"Nigella Lawson is one of the best and most influential of British food writers ... The staple cookbook for a whole generation" -- Ruth Rogers, co-author of The River Cafe Cookbook
"My kitchen bible to this day... You made me realise that every meal is a celebration. You didn't teach me how to cook. You taught me how to eat." -- Nigel Slater * Observer *
"How to eat, how to cook, how to write: I want two copies of this book, one to reference in the kitchen and one to read in bed." -- Yotam Ottolenghi
"A classic of the genre: a book that easily gathers both experiences and novice cooks under its wing, with something to teach them all, and a witty confiding manner as it does so. Frankly, no kitchen is complete without." * The Irish Independent *
"How to Eat may just be the best cookery book ever" * Daily Telegraph *

Her groundbreaking iPhone App debuted in April 2010 and her book, 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 Appetit 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 Appetit magazine's 2002 "Tastemaker of the Year." How to Eat was honoured 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.
