Format: Hardcover
Within a week of buying this book, it became the kitchen bible in our busy London kitchen. Slater's love of fine food doesn't stop him from giving us the ultimate bacon sandwich alongside recipes for dolcelatte gnocchi (my favourite). None of the recipes take more than 30 minutes to prepare and cook, and all of them taste utterly marvellous.
So, buy this book, make yourself a plate of grilled croissants with Roquefort and walnuts (chapter 1) and a cup of real coffee, and inspire yourself with Slater's witty prose and interesting suggestions for pitta bread.

Format: Hardcover
As someone who has now spent nearly a whole year at University, I am one of thousands in this country (and I suspect others) who has learned just why home-cooked food tastes wonderfully unique. Books like this would put a lot of college freshers out of misery if they were handed out along with advice leaflets at Fresher's Fairs - what's more, I believe they could stand a would-be chef in good stead right the way through life.
Nigel Slater is a masterchef beyond any conceivable doubt. He knows how to transform even the simplest of ingredients into the utterly sublime, and proves once and for all that it is possible to cook, for yourself or for others, on a shoestring budget (which is all too true for University students!). The writing is so engrossing that you will be imagining what the food is like before you even attempt the recipes - and when you do, you are almost 100% certain to be satisfied.
I'm not much of a cook. Even so, I find this book indispensable. I cannot think of any cookery writer, unless it be Delia Smith, who has written such a useful, straightforward and satisfying book as this. Highly recommended!

This is the best cookbook I own. The dishes are excellent and quite easy to prepare. And Slater is a very funny -- and very down-to-earth -- writer.

Format: Paperback
This book is definitely a keeper. It is quiet and unassuming, full of simple ideas from which you can gather inspiration. And while there are no photographs, the visual simplicity of the book is perfectly attuned with Nigel's whole approach to cooking: simple, never fussy, pure. His recipes and ideas allow the ingredients to be showcased, putting food centre stage.

Fantastic collection of recipes for everyone from the beginner cook, to the most accomplished. There is nothing fussy about the writing or the recipes, just classic cooking.
