Praise for Cook, Eat, Repeat

Lawson's latest book is the one I've been waiting for her to write...Her aim is to empower and demystify and to encourage everyone to get as much pleasure from cooking as she does

Diana Henry, Daily Telegraph

Twenty-two years after her first book, How To Eat, Nigella Lawson has produced what feels like its answer: Cook, Eat, Repeat.

The Times

Vogue.co.uk

Nigella's writing is a culinary stream of consciousness that piques the senses and you hear her reassuring voice through her writing... Cook, Eat, Repeat is expansive, practical and enjoyable

Caterer

Cook, Eat, Repeat is a wonderful combination of gastronomical essays, stylish up-to-date imagery and - most importantly - recipes with far-reaching appeal, ticking boxes as both an entertaining read and a practical guide

Rosie Conroy, Independent

Thrilling... A wise, digressive celebration of the life-affirming pleasures of eating that sparkles with descriptive sentences that are just as delectable as dishes that cover everything from crab mac'n'cheese to sweet and salty chocolate cookies specifically designed not to be shared... Nigella's latest book -- through its wisdom, wit and urge to bring joy -- has the knack of making an uncertain future feel that little bit more bearable

Jimi Famurewa, Waitrose Weekly

Cook, Eat, Repeat is an informative, intelligent, thought-provoking and amusing book. Surely the combination of her delicious recipes and delicious words is a dream come true

Beautifully written... A must for domestic goddesses

Charlotte Heathcote, Sunday Express, *Christmas Gift Guide 2020*

A new title from Nigella Lawson is always welcome, but never more so than in the year that drove so many of us back into our kitchens. This book - her greatest since How to Eat in 1998 - is about embracing the idea of cooking as a series of soothing rituals... The dishes here are as comforting as any Nigella fan could wish for, from Basque burnt cheesecake to fish finger bhorta. And above and beyond the recipes, this is a profound and consoling defence of the pleasures of the kitchen. I can't think of a better companion for these strange times

A rapturous account of wonderful food and a joyful antidote to everything else

Meera Sodha, Guardian, *Best Cookbooks of 2020*

Few cookery writers write so beautifully, imbuing their recipes with such a sense of narrative, culinary enthusiasm and human understanding... [The] recognition of the personal nature of cooking, and the connections it involves, strikes at the heart of her appeal

Ettie Neil-Gallacher, Field

Lawson's engaging tone...makes this an ideal Christmas present in these dark days... Just now there may be little we can do but cook, eat, repeat, but Lawson shows us this can and should be pleasurably ritualistic rather than monotonous

Carina Murphy, Tablet

Deliciously indulgent food escapes

The most delicious-sounding ideas... [and the] perfect book to hone your cooking skills - and lockdown might provide extra time you need

Chicken in a pot with lemon and orzo

This is not exactly the same as perhaps the most precious recipe in my repertoire, My Mother’s Praised Chicken, which found a home in my eighth book, Kitchen, but it owes a lot to it. A family favourite, it’s a simple one-pot dish which brings comfort and joy, and it is my pleasure to share that with you.

Chocolate, tahini banana bread

I have been making a banana bread with chocolate and tahini on repeat for a while now, and every time I’ve eaten it over the last year or so, I couldn’t help thinking that the particular combination of intense chocolatiness, sweet, texture-softening banana and the rich earthiness of tahini would make the perfect warm pudding.
