Never a big fan of Nigella but purchased this as an audio book on special offer as curious to see how a cook book translate into an audio book The good news for this book at least is as this isn’t a traditional cook book it works very well The original book doesn’t have any pictures so you don’t miss out there but was it does have is a narrative which works well in the audio format That coupled with the fact that the structure of the recipes isn’t to fancy and Nigella narrates it makes for a really good listen The book is of its age but there is nothing wrong with that no tortured intricate recipes reuiring a plethora of modern day euipment and a brigade in your kitchen just practical tasty meals Ultimately this book has helped me get my cooking mojo back and there is no higher praise than that

Nigella brings you Eat The PDFEPUB #188 into her life and tells you how she thinks about food how meals come together in her head and how she cooks for family and friends A breakthrough with How to PDFEPUBhundreds of appealing and accessible recipes–Amanda Hesser The New Yor. I just got round to reading Nigel Slater's tribute to this book in the article series Observer Food Monthly's Classic Cookbook It had been waiting for a fortnight in a forest of browser tabs It begins How to Eat is easy to find on my bookshelf It is the book in tatters The one whose spine is torn whose pages are smeared smudged and scorched The book that has clearly done service for 20 years My copy may not be uite that messy but it's worn and spine bent in a way that none of my other books ever have been certainly none I bought new and yes it does have a few stains and splashes on the cover and pages If you're not old enough yet to have experienced the phenomenon of seeing books which still feel kind of newish to you dubbed 'classics' books which you bought brand new after you'd left home or worse still after you'd left university it is a mildly surreal experience that seems to signal 'middle age approaching' You'll have already got used to increasing numbers of sports stars pop stars film stars and then and new writers and even a few politicians being younger than you; and then to most sports stars being retired by your age You start to look differently at stuff that was talked about as a modern classic when you were a teenager or student; the journalist who was writing the NME article you once read was probably a fan of it when they were a teenager or student themselves and it was new Although I rarely cook whole recipes from How To Eat now Slater's article reminded me of how much of an ethos of cooking it taught me My mother was often praised as a good cook by guests and relatives at big meals which happened a few times a year but that was a different order of food from the dry boring pre packaged stuff that was day to day fare so I didn't feel that she was This is as much as anything an indictment of the poor uality and choice of ready made food available to a successful career woman in the 80s and early 90s who spent uite a lot on the grocery shop in an area with no Waitrose or Sainsburys but had little time and energy to cook in the evenings before sitting down to do paperwork at home These days an euivalent household has all manner of lush fresh premium ready meals to choose from I may not have got much cooking practice directly at home but I had the basic toolkit of school HE lessons and the conviction that there might be some kind of inherited ability borne out by a handful of adventures when I went to the Tesco near my first student flat noted down ingredients from interesting new to me ready meals such as chicken fajitas bought the fresh stuff and via basic worn chopping boards knives and pots and pans emerged with food that seemed to be really uite nice The late 90s was a time when cooking from scratch was just starting to be cool again as were fatty natural ingredients I'd been brought up to be wary of and which had been demonised by the 80s90s fashion for low fat diets I found I did not like the formerly verboten cream on its own it really doesn't taste of much although sour cream is another matter but it can be a wonderful ingredient As an over enthusiastic reader of Sunday newspaper magazines I was already well aware of these trends but the Nigella book which I turned to over and over again was a guide and reinforcement I probably had the general confidence by dint of personality and upbringing to go my own way and be unafraid of missing out or substituting ingredients due to price local unavailability ethics or allergy or sensitivity but enough of Nigella's commentaries like the words of a glamorous older sister or young aunt mentioned swapping ingredients and not being subject to as Slater repeats 'the tyranny of recipes' that they gave me the permission I needed and the ability to see it as a skilful rather than shameful or fussy thing to do Back then pretty much the only easily accessible euivalent of the likes of Jack Monroe was Grub on a Grant and its seuels She has a family but also writes about eating alone as a pleasure in itself and something worth cooking for And Nigella talked my language in a way that I'd never seen before in a cookery book she described basic recipes as the cookery euivalent of key texts in literature; she was allusive; she had a similar frame of reference whilst also making me think; she made it about ideas at the same time as being casual practical and friendlyEven when I got a few other cookery books including Slater's own Appetite very good in its own right and Jamie Oliver's infamous The Naked Chef the latter just because I wanted to know what people were talking about rather than because I liked the show it was always How to Eat I ended up opening to find out how to make something or just because I liked reading bits of it Nigella's cakes and puddings seuel How to be a Domestic Goddess got used occasionally but mostly I just looked at it Like the other cookbooks in this paragraph I'd shelved it years ago on Goodreads as 'part read' whilst only 'How to Eat' of these big tomes was actually down as 'read' Now the internet is full of recipes and cookery books aren't really necessary but whenever I do make something based on an online recipe I think there are elements of what I learned from How to Eat in there There are of course drawbacks to online food culture This is the Grumpy Old Women bit Several of the recent Goodreads reviews state that the lack of photos in this book is a problem because you don't know what the dishes are supposed to look like This never occurred to me before in twenty years The very point of this book was that it's home cooking not restaurant food presented by a chef and most of the time it didn't matter what that looked like it's making it and eating it that count And it still doesn't matter if you're not obsessed with putting all your meals on Instagram and don't hang out with people who are Besides if you want to present something nicely this is a book about gaining skills and the feel for cooking and therefore work out how to present what you have rather than copying a photograph that was probably artificially styled with non food items anyway I think the lack of photos is a bonus it frees the cook from another at time of writing unanticipated tyranny These days Nigella cookbooks can be seen as pretentious and hopelessly geared towards the well off Or likely they always were It's very possible I needed to come from a certain sort of background and have a certain sort of confidence in order to perceive just how much this book can be used as a basis and ethos for cheaper and basic scratch cooking during a life when the dizzy heights of earning £25k were only briefly fleetingly experienced But I feel that 'How to' in the title attests justly to its practicality and utility And in the days before I had managed to adjust my thinking to my circumstances and to find rightness and coolness in the low budget and the anti consumerist the modern intelligent glamour the book lent to improvising and adapting recipes or to cooking traditional dishes that I'd previously only encountered in badly made versions in school dinners was a sustaining comfort and inspirationOct 2018

How to Eat The Pleasures and Principles of Good FoodK TimesNigella Lawson serves up irony and sensuality with her comforting recipes the ueen of Come On Cooking–Los Angeles TimesA chatty sometimes cheeky celebration to Eat The PDF #10003 of home cooked meals–USA TodayNigella Lawson is whisks down Britain’s funniest and se. I don't think it uite stood the test of time The writing is interesting as always yes I read Nigella Lawson's cookbooks for her style so sue me but the recipes ingredients aged and the way the book was published with no pictures of the food makes the recipes very easy to forget The low fat chapter was among the most insincere pieces of writing committed to print Oddly enough though the final chapter on feeding children was charming and informative
