5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for his book on fruit!!!, March 2 2010

This review is from: Tender I - A Cook And His Vegetable Patch (Hardcover)
I Love Nigel Slater! There, I've said it. He can do no wrong. I'm a vegetarian and he isn't but the way he writes about food is so solid, and his suggested "how-tos" are so charming I can't resist him. And I love this book best of all his books. Even if you don't like to cook you will be delighted reading about his garden and vegetables. If you do like to cook it will inspire you in the kitchen to help vegetables achieve transcendence! And if you have some arable land nearby you might want to try his gardening tips. I would! As I read Tender I - A Cook and His Vegetable Patch I found myself wishing I didn't live in an apartment.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good, June 7 2010

This review is from: Tender I - A Cook And His Vegetable Patch (Hardcover)
I don't know Nigel's work very much. I loved reading "Kitchen Diaries" but the recipes were just so-so (spice cake, tomato cream pasta, curries). This book though, "Tender", is amazing. The information on growing and using vegetables is incredible and so far, all the recipes I have tried were great (carrot cakes with coriander, chard and cheddar tart, brocoli and bacon soup, etc.). Will definitely buy "Tender II".

Nigel never ceases to entertain and educate me.
I seldom cook new kinds of vegetables without referring to his words.
Nigel's food books are my "Go-to" books.

Nigel Slater is such an enjoyable food writer to read! I have four of his books, and thoroughly enjoyed this one. His recipes have yet to lead me astray! I cannot wait for Tender II: Fruits.

5.0 out of 5 stars It will change the way you think about vegetables!, July 21 2011
This review is from: Tender I - A Cook And His Vegetable Patch (Hardcover)
I first wanted to buy this book because I would really love to grow a vegetable garden someday, and I thought this would be a great book to help me learn a little bit about it. The book ended up being so much more. I love everything about it! It has followed me everywhere - the living room, kitchen, bedroom, patio, etc. It is very easy to find recipes because of the way the book is divided - by vegetable! And not to mention his writing style - this is my first Nigel Slater book, and I can assure you that it will not be my last. There are also pictures of all of the vegetables and what they should look like. If you are trying to figure out how to incorporate more vegetables in your diet, this is a great book - often, the vegetable is the star of the dish, and a lot of times the recipes are actually for main dishes. Great purchase, very happy!
