A Cook's Book Summary

A Cook's Book by Nigel Slater

'This is a book for life . . . This, and it's high praise, is Slater's best book' Diana Henry, Sunday Telegraph

'It's so good. I think it's his best one' India Knight, Sunday Times

'It is beautiful' Grace Dent

A Cook's Book is the story of Nigel Slater's life in the kitchen.

From the first jam tart Nigel made with his mum standing on a chair trying to reach the Aga, through to what he is cooking now, this is the ultimate Nigel Slater collection brimming with over 200 recipes.

He writes about how his cooking has changed from discovering the best way to roast a chicken to the trick to smoky, smooth aubergine mash. He gives the tales behind the recipes and recalls the first time he ate a baguette in Paris, his love of jewel-bright Japanese pickled radishes and his initial slice of buttercream-topped chocolate cake. These are the favourite recipes Nigel Slater cooks at home every day; the heart and soul of his cooking. Chapters include: a slice of tart, a chicken in the pot, everyday greens, the solace of soup and the ritual of tea. This is the essential Nigel Slater.

A Cook's Book Reviews

'This is a book for life . . . This, and it's high praise, is Slater's best book' Diana Henry, Sunday Telegraph

'It's so good. I think it's his best one, and I say that because every single recipe is something you'd make tonight, for supper, with no fuss or stress . . . It's super-homey and a friendly, comfortable book for people who don't view recipes as projects. Divinely written, as per' India Knight, Sunday Times

'I've got five Nigel Slaters - and in all honesty I don't need a single new recipe in my life . . . But that's absolutely nothing to do with it. Cookery books are like new clothes - you imagine a whole life to go with them' Alexandra Schulman, Daily Mail

'It is beautiful' Grace Dent

'Every time Nigel Slater announces a new book, I quickly make a spot next to all his other books that sit on my bookshelf. His latest book, A Cook's Book is like your favourite chocolate cake, sweetened with fond memories and layered with Nigel's wisdom to make us all better cooks in the kitchen' Nik Sharma

'It's gorgeous' Felicity Spector

'The pick of the bunch . . . bubbling with ideas, suggestions, hints and personal opinions that genuinely help you to make your own mind up about how and what to cook' The Times

'Slater remains the reigning champion, a writer incapable of uninspiring sentences' Daily Express

'No one writes more temptingly about food' Independent
