‘Cooking isn’t performance art – or shouldn’t be. Make your food welcoming rather than fussy and remember that it’s not a test of your worth and acceptability: it’s just dinner, and can be easily delicious.’

Packed with fresh ideas and exciting new twists on old favourites, Nigella Lawson brings you mouthwatering but simple recipes to add flavour to your busy life – from quick family meals and easy suppers to dinner party menus and roast lunches.

This was the first cookbook I ever bought for myself. It's probably not the best of Nigella's cookbooks (that title has to go to How to Eat, with Feast a close second place), but it was a formative one for me. I'm not sure I've ever even cooked a dish from it, but I could tell you every single recipe in it, describe every photograph. Nigella, in a purple pashmina, standing over a barbecue wielding tongs, seemed to 12 year old me like the most glamorous thing. It was the book that taught me that a cookbook isn't just a tool, it can be a delight.

I know this isn't the most popular of her books, but it's the one I turn to the most often - for Welsh rarebit muffins, pancakes, the masala omelette and absolutely splendid coriander chutney. The fried chicken is 👌 as well.
