I had to include a Nigel Slater title on my list because they’re simply beautiful things to behold. Slater’s evocative prose and easy-to-follow recipes are a joy to read, and his words are elevated by the eye-catching photography. I like the fact that Slater encourages creativity and appreciates simplicity in his uniquely warm way, and in this book, the vegetable is the star, which aligns well with my vegetarianism.
A great compilation of recipes, but more than that, a sea-change in the cook's life as the veg patch is resuscitated and people start the dialogue of growing their own.
As with Kitchen Diaries, I regularly dip into this for inspiration. Beautiful in design and prose.
