Whatever your day looks like – there is a recipe here that is just right.

BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016 in The Guardian and The Spectator
Whatever your day looks like – there is a recipe here that is just right.

Whether it is a quick and comforting noodle bowl or a hearty slow-cooked pie, this book celebrates food's power to restore, revive and rejuvenate.

But it isn't just about the food on your plate: it's about how it gets there. Stirring Slowly celebrates time spent in the kitchen. Wile away a happy hour stirring a creamy black dhal, or give your undivided focus to flipping caramelised apple, ricotta and hazelnut pancakes – because cooking nourishes you inside and out.

'The sort of book that has you immediately plastering its pages with post-it notes... the writing is warm, encouraging and moving' Nigella Lawson

The sort of book that has you immediately plastering its pages with post-it notes... the writing is warm, encouraging and moving

Nigella Lawson

A new modern classic - a simply stunning cookbook

Jamie Oliver

A truly beautiful book full of warmth, stories and genuinely original recipes from a real lover of food. I want to cook it all

Anna Jones

The perfect gift - a quietly lovely debut cookbook

Felicity Cloake, Guardian BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Serves up equal measures of healthy attitude and food in eclectic recipes… Her book is enthusiasm for food, cover to cover.

Utterly delicious.

Jamie Magazine, BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Utterly delicious.

Jamie Magazine, BOOKS OF THE YEAR

A masterpiece of approachable, delicious recipes that you will want to cook from time and time again

April Bloomfield

This book makes me both hungry and satisfied at the exact same time. This is the work of an enthusiastic and talented cook who understands the way we want to eat today as well as the way we want our food to look. There is no denying those two things go hand in hand and we are very lucky to hold Georgina's as she guides us through her lovely repertoire

Clare Ptak

One for creative cooks… Chapter titles such as Quick & Light and Low, Slow & Hearty whet the appetite.

Delicious

I'd bet my house that Georgina Hayden’s Book, Stirring Slowly, will be many people’s cookery book of the year… A love letter to cooking.

Vegetarian Living

Her debut cookbook features a wide range of eclectic recipes wrapped around stories and anecdotes, all of which display a writer and cook with a genuine passion for good food… A wonderful debut from a name to watch.

Crumbs

Written with warmth, Georgina draws you in like an old friend. Her recipes are as comforting as they are clever and exciting… A new classic that I know I’ll return to time and again.

Sophie Goodwin, BBC Good Food Magazine, Book of the Year

Full of comforting recipes.

Supergolden Bakes, Book of the Year

The blondies recipe alone is worth the price of this incredible cookbook.

RED, Book of the Year

It's about the emotion of cooking, and cooking to make you feel a certain way. I think it was sensitively done and made you think and that's really really nice

Irish Times, Jamie Oliver
