How To Eat
"A chatty, sometimes cheeky, celebration of home-cooked meals."
Through her wildly popular television shows, her five bestselling cookbooks, her line of kitchenware, and her frequent media appearances, Nigella Lawson has emerged as one of the food world's most seductive personalities. How to Eat is the book that started it all--Nigella's signature, all-purposed cookbook, brimming with easygoing mealtime strategies and 350 mouthwatering recipes, from a truly sublime Tarragon French Roast Chicken to a totally decadent Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Cake. Here is Nigella's total (and totally irresistible) approach to food--the book that lays bare her secrets for finding pleasure in the simple things that we cook and eat every day.
"[Nigella] brings you 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 hundreds of appealing and accessible recipes."
--Amanda Hesser, The New York Times
"Nigella Lawson serves up irony and sensuality with her comforting recipes."
--Los Angeles Times
"Nigella Lawson is, whisks down, Britain's funniest and sexiest food writer, a raconteur who is delicious whether detailing every step on the way towards a heavenly roast chicken and root vegetable couscous or explaining why "cooking is not just about joining the dots.'"
--Richard Story, Vogue magazine

Review: How to Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good FoodUser Review - Beverly - Goodreads
The majority of the recipes sound really tasty, but there wasn't anything new or surprising to me in her recipes. It's kind of an updated, British, Joy of Cooking-type cookbook. Very useful for daily home cooking, not too exciting when you want to challenge yourself. Read full review

Just delightful. And I love how she shares the story about collecting chicken carcasses - even from friends' dinner parties - to make stock! Read full review
