"Nigella Lawson is one of the best and most influential of British food writers ...The staple cookbook for a whole generation"||"How to eat, how to cook, how to write: I want two copies of this book, one to reference in the kitchen and one to read in bed."||"A classic of the genre: a book that easily gathers both experiences and novice cooks under its wing, with something to teach them all, and a witty confiding manner as it does so.Frankly, no kitchen is complete without."
