Review:

"Cooking is not about just joining the dots, following one recipe slavishly and then moving on to the next," says British food writer Nigella Lawson. "It's about developing an understanding of food, a sense of assurance in the kitchen, about the simple desire to make yourself something to eat." Lawson is not a chef, but "an eater." She writes as if she's conversing with you while beating eggs or mincing garlic in your kitchen. She explains how to make the basics, such as roast chicken, soup stock, various sauces, cake, and ice cream. She teaches you to cook more esoteric dishes, such as grouse, white truffles (mushrooms, not chocolate), and "ham in Coca-Cola." She gives advice for entertaining over the holidays, quick cooking ("the real way to make life easier for yourself: cooking in advance"), cooking for yourself ("you don't have to belong to the drearily narcissistic learn-to-love-yourself school of thought to grasp that it might be a good thing to consider yourself worth cooking for"), and weekend lunches for six to eight people. Don't expect any concessions to health recommendations in the recipes here--Lawson makes liberal and unapologetic use of egg yolks, cream, and butter. There are plenty of recipes, but the best parts of How to Eat are the well-crafted tidbits of wisdom, such as the following:

  • "Cook in advance and, if the worse comes to the worst, you can ditch it. No one but you will know that it tasted disgusting, or failed to set, or curdled or whatever."

  • On the proper English trifle: "When I say proper I mean proper: lots of sponge, lots of jam, lots of custard and lots of cream. This is not a timid construction ... you don't want to end up with a trifle so upmarket it's inappropriately, posturingly elegant. A degree of vulgarity is requisite."

  • "Too many people cook only when they're giving a dinner party. And it's very hard to go from zero to a hundred miles an hour. How can you learn to feel at ease around food, relaxed about cooking, if every time you go into the kitchen it's to cook at competition level?"

--Joan Price

From the Inside Flap:

"Although it’s possible to love eating without being able to cook, I don’t believe you can ever really cook unless you love eating."
–Nigella Lawson

Earthy, witty, and totally passionate about eating, British food phenomenon Nigella Lawson has taken North American kitchens by storm with the huge success of her television show, Nigella Bites.

How to Eat is the book that started it all–her signature, all-purpose cookbook that became a blockbuster bestseller on its publication in England and has now sold hundreds of thousands of copies on both sides of the Atlantic.

How to Eat is Nigella at her best and most complete. Here is her total (and totally irresistible) approach to food, in which she lays bare her secrets for finding pleasure in simple things that we cook and eat every day: no fussy instructions or overachieving recipes, just a joyous celebration of home-cooked dishes that are easy to make and serve–and

deliciously satisfying to eat.

Best of all, Nigella knows that the kitchen isn’t always an oasis of tranquility. Her world is the real world: where children are waiting to be fed, where unexpected guests arrive on the doorstep at dinnertime, where you run out of that key ingredient just after the stores close. That’s why How to Eat has chapters for different needs and situations, including meals for one and two people, low-fat cooking, weekend dining, and cooking for babies and small children.

With her easy, conversational style, Nigella makes you feel as if she’s right there in the kitchen with you as she shares 350 mouthwatering recipes that range from the truly sublime Tarragon French Roast Chicken to a totally seductive Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Cake. She eases you through every preparation detail–from coordinating the oven settings and timing for dishes that must be served together to suggesting the perfect wine for the meal at your next dinner party. All of the recipes are accessible and, with short lists of ingredients, easy to adjust to suit different tastes and occasions.

With advance preparation tips and great leftover ideas, Nigella shows how to get the most from the pantry and the refrigerator as you move beyond recipes to develop your own sense of what food is about.

Whether used in the kitchen or read like a good novel, this book will spark a joyful rediscovery of eating and really enjoying food–and its preparation–as a wonderful part of your everyday life.
