Notes from a Small Kitchen Island

  • Debora Robertson


Recipes and stories that celebrate the joys and quirks of domestic life, written with warmth, candour and humour

I am so greedily impatient for this book. I want to read it. I want to cook from it.
Nigella Lawson

In Notes from a Small Kitchen Island, Debora introduces us to the recipes that made her, as much as she made them. From feasts in her French holiday cottage to the Turkish-inspired weeknight dinners created with ingredients from her local Hackney high street, her recipes encapsulate the comfort to be found in the everyday. Debora's approach affirms the value of simple, nurturing tasks, whether that's roasting a chicken or planting a herb garden on your window sill.

Written by one of our leading chroniclers of domestic life, this book comprises decades of fieldwork in the author's natural territory: her kitchen.

Debora's food knowledge is exceptional. Her understanding of the food world, writers, cookbooks, chefs and producers, is encyclopaedic. On top of that she's genuinely lovely!
