Nigel Slater - The kitchen diaries 2
I am only about a third of the way through this gorgeous and most readable book so more when I have finished. Suffice to say for now that it includes over 250 recipes, many from his BBC TV series Dish of the Day, Simple Suppers and Simple Cooking.
And of course it is by Nigel Slater, presenter of Dish of the Day and one of the UK's best-loved food writers, a beautiful and inspiring companion volume to his bestselling Kitchen Diaries.
And I love this paragraph in his acknowledgements:
Thank you to all the bookshops and those who work in them for their continued enthusiasm. And to everyone who enters their local booksellers and discovers the magic that lies on those creaking shelves and gets to know that there is nothing so beautiful as the feel and smell of a book in the hand.
Amen I say Nigel, Amen !
