Description
Brought back by popular demand. Beloved food writer Nigel Slater presents a yearlong record of his cooking and entertaining, as well as endearing culinary stories and witticisms.
Nigel Slater writes about food in a way that stimulates the imagination, the heart, and the palate all at once. "The Kitchen Diaries" brings an especially personal ingredient to the mix, letting us glimpse into Nigel Slater's pantry, tour local farmers markets with him, and savor even the simplest meals at his table.
Recording twelve months in Nigel Slater's culinary life, "The Kitchen Diaries" shares seasonal dishes and the intriguing elements behind them. As someone who celebrates each visit to the cheese shop or butcher, he enthusiastically conveys the brilliant array of choices and views shopping as an adventure rather than a chore. If he feels like staying in, we spend the evening with him at his London flat, enjoying a creative combination of odds and ends from the fridge. A rainy day in February calls for a hearty stew; summertime finds him feasting on a simple lunch of baked tomatoes with grated Parmesan. No matter the season, "The Kitchen Diaries" offers a year-round invitation to cook and dine with the world's most irresistible lover of food.
