Reviews

Nigella Lawson’s How to Eat is one of my favourite cookbooks of all time. And with Simply Nigella she has written an equal to her great work, a wonderful volume containing page after page of things you actually want to cook. Who could resists oxtail on toast, Malaysian red-cooked chicken and smoky salted caramel sauce? It’s a cookbook to adore, the sort that will become cracked and stained with constant loving use.
