Read full description of the books:
So. I knew her name. But really nothing else about Nigella Lawson. I've seen her cookbooks in friends' kitchens; that was about it. When Shauna Niequist (Bread & Wine) highly recommended her cookbooks for "comfort reading" I decided to see what was what.
Sidenote: When I told a co-worker that Nigella was my 'new thang', she informed me that Nigella is now déclassé (well, that's not the word she used, but I just learned it--from Nigella--and needed to test drive it) because of personal problems. Ah. I'm always at least five years behind pop culture.
Shauna was right. What an entertaining cookbook! Nigella twice writes about her "appetite for alliteration" and "alliterative allure". And all the British English makes this Anglophile chuffed to bits. It's kind of like getting two-for-one (England and Italy).
• a fierce but exquisite supper
• just bung 'em all in
• A roast chicken always feels celebratory; indeed, a roast chicken always is celebratory.
• The saffron-soused grains of barley positively ooze sunniness.
• I like this with a few raspberries to tumble around and a chocolate sauce to Jackson Pollock over it.
(I whooped aloud when I read this!)
• I’m not going to give an evangelical tub-thump about my turkey brining techniques,
• I know it might sound a bit of a faff,
I took notes. Never salt pasta water until it has come to a boil. Always hold back a cup of the pasta water in reserve for the sauce. Mushroom should only be wiped with a damp cloth, never washed. I'm going to buy some vermouth to have on hand, because we seldom open a bottle of white wine and then it goes to waste. And shallots are the thing, she says. Easier to peel than an onion and cooks faster. She also buys egg-whites in a carton (better than having the egg yolks woefully staring at you in the fridge).
While this was a fun cookbook to read, there were many ingredients that would be hard for me to find in my isolated town in Oregon. I'd like to try a few. And perhaps make a grocery list for an Italian deli the next time I'm in a Little Italy.
The section An Italian-Inspired Christmas was fun and timely. Several gift options, if I were a brave girl. Spaghetti Spice packets. Biscotti. Chocolate Salami. (It just looks like salami.)
My Kindle ran out of juice (and my loan is about to expire) so I read the rest on Kindle for PC. What a grand idea! The pictures were so much more scrumptious looking.

Read information about the authorNigella Lawson is the daughter of former Conservative cabinet minister Nigel Lawson (now Lord Lawson) and the late Vanessa Salmon, socialite and heir to the Lyons Corner House empire, who died of liver cancer in 1985. Lawson attended Godolphin and Latymer School and Westminster School before graduating from Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, with a degree in Medieval and Modern Languages.
Lawson wrote a restaurant column for the Spectator and a comment column for The Observer and became deputy literary editor of the Sunday Times in 1986. She became, among other things, a newspaper-reviewer on BBC1 Sunday-morning TV programme 'Breakfast with Frost'. She has also co-hosted, with David Aaronovitch, Channel 4 books discussion programme 'Booked' in the late 1990s, and was an occasional compere of BBC2's press review 'What the Papers Say', as well as appearing on BBC radio.
Following slots as a culinary sidekick on Nigel Slater's 'Real Food Show' on Channel 4, she has fronted three eponymous TV cookery series broadcast in the UK on the channel. She has had two series of 'Nigella Bites' in 1999-2001, plus a 2001 Christmas special, and 'Forever Summer with Nigella' in 2002, both of which yielded accompanying recipe books. Her style of presentation is often gently mocked by comedians and commentators, particularly in a regularly-occurring impersonation of her in the BBC television comedy series 'Dead Ringers', who perceive that she plays overtly upon her attractiveness and sexuality as a device to engage viewers of her cookery programmes, despite Lawson's repeated denials that she does so.
She was voted author of the year at the 2001 British Book Awards. More than 2 million copies of her books have been sold worldwide.
