Product description

Comprehensive, informative, and engaging, Nigella Kitchen offers feel-good food for cooks and eaters that is comforting yet always seductive, nostalgic but with a modern twist--whether super-fast exotic recipes for the weekday rush, leisurely slow-cook dishes for weekends and special occasions, or irresistible cakes and cookies in true "domestic goddess" style. Nigella Kitchen answers everyday cooking quandaries--what to feed a group of hungry teenagers, how to rustle up a spur-of-the-moment meal for friends, or how to treat yourself when you're home alone--and since real cooking is so often about leftovers, here one recipe can morph into another . . . from ham hocks in cider to cidery pea soup, from "praised" chicken to Chinatown salad. This isn't just about being thrifty; it's about being creative and seeing how recipes evolve.

With 190 mouthwatering and inspiring recipes, including more than 60 express-style recipes (30 minutes or under), Nigella Kitchen offers plenty of choice--from clams with chorizo to Guinness gingerbread, from Asian braised beef shank to flourless chocolate lime cake, from pasta alla Genovese to Venetian carrot cake. In addition, Nigella presents her no-nonsense kitchen kit must-haves (and crucially what isn't needed) in the way of equipment and magical standby ingredients. But above all, she reminds the reader how much pleasure there is to be had in real food and in reclaiming the traditional rhythms of the kitchen, as she cooks to the beat of the heart of the home, creating simple, delicious recipes to make life less complicated

Gorgeously illustrated, this expansive, lively narrative, with its rich feast of food, is destined to be a twenty-first-century classic.

we'll nightcap coffee and you can spend the night, we'll do anything that makes you smile

I was theoretical to blog about this earlier today but then I also had to make a cake and while doing so I ate so much cake batter and icing that I needed a nap, during which time if you did an x-ray scan of my skull you would see that the brain had... Which is so much the summary of my life, that you could put that opening sentence on the front cover of my (inevitable, hopefully) autobiography. On that supposed-to-be-doing-stuff vibe, I was talking to my dear friend Kate the other day about motivation and missing to get stuff done and worrying about where I am going with my life, I seem to do little other than half-assedly start projects... If I could get some kind of fairy godmother place happening right now my request to them would be for me to write another cookbook and get a TV show. I so deeply miss that wacky montage time when I was nonstop writing my first cookbook and making food and there were photoshoots and plans and wild recipe testing and just so much going on. Unfortunately, in what some might look at as being... My computer ate it. I'm gonna try to start all over again, but gosh. I am always proud of how I was approached by Penguin to write my premier cookbook, but this time around I can't sit and wait and hope for the best, I need to, oh, rediscover my inner Leslie Knope and hustle like whoa. With that in mind, if anyone knows of any praisefully good and cool publishers that I should be approaching, let me know. If you want to tell me that the publishing industry is going down the toilet and unless I'm writing Fifty Shades of Depressing fanfic I'm screwed, I'd be less appreciative, but I guess tough love has its place sometimes. But why have an existential meltdown when you could eat ice cream. While having an existential meltdown. (Tagline: lay the meltdown for yourself, not your frozen dessert) I made this coffee ice cream, a recipe of my queen Nigella Lawson's, three times in about ten days - which speaks to both the excellence of said plan and also my abilities at... The addition of sweetened condensed milk gives it a maddeningly pleasing chewiness, as well as making it spoonable and smooth right from the freezer without any need for churning, stirring, or waiting for it to soften. The bulging caramel taste of the condensed milk also mellows out the harsh coffee dust, giving it a crema-puny coffee flavour with tiny specks of enlivening bitterness here and there. It's so lush and delicious and I frankly expected nothing less of Nigella but it's still good to have such relentlessly complete ideals reinforced. Despite the recipe being monumentally easy, when I first made it I deviated slightly and used coconut cream instead of methodical cream, simply because it's what I had in my cupboard and also I'd spent three of my last ten dollars on a can of... (In my, and indeed anyone's defense, sometimes having seven dollars and ice cream is ameliorate than having ten dollars and no ice cream, in terms of living your best life. It was so brilliant that it's all I've done ever since for fear of breaking the magic spell of deliciousness, but sense free to use actual cream if you like. The coconut flavour is completely subtle and totally overpowered by all that coffee, if that's something that concerns you. very compliant coffee ice cream. adapted from a recipe in Nigella Lawson's book Nigellissima. Makes around 600ml. . one 400ml (or so) can coconut cream. one can sweetened condensed bleed. about three tablespoons of instant coffee, ideally instant espresso powder. Empty the two cans into a bowl, and whisk together along with the coffee ability. If you like you can dissolve the coffee in a tablespoon or two of boiling water, otherwise your ice cream will be dotted with coffee granules - either way is fine though. Pour into a freezer-proof case - I use an old take-out plastic container with a lid - and freeze for about six hours or until solid.

He headed straight for the kitchen to look fully my cook books and decide which tasty meal he will make for Peach when she comes over for dinner.
