The real successor to Nigella Lawson's classic, "How to Eat", a volume that every right-thinking person cherishes and consults regularly..."Feast" [is] just as entertaining and divulgent - and it works too, both as a practical manual and an engrossing read.' - "Evening Standard". '"Feast" is a voluptuous and delicious piece of food writing.' - "Guardian". 'This is the kind of food we can dream of cooking.' - "Observer".
A feast for the eyes and the senses and now available in a handsome paperback edition, "Feast" is a must for every kitchen. In the style and tradition of Nigella's classic "How to Eat", it applies those same 'Pleasures and Principles of Good Food' to celebrations from feast days to everyday happiness. Essentially about families and food, about public holidays and private passions, about how to celebrate the small pleasures, as well as the big occasions, it includes everything from Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Eid, to Passover and Easter; from Meatless Feasts to Midnight Feasts, from weddings to funerals, from kitchen feasts to kids' favourites, from Party-time to the ultimate Chocolate Cake Hall of Fame.
Heartwarming, passionate, informed, refreshingly uncomplicated and full of ideas, "Feast" is destined to become a classic like "How to Eat". Written with the same enjoyment, sensuality and practical awareness, and packed with over 300 recipes and more than 200 photos, "Feast" proclaims Nigella's love of life and great food to celebrate it with.
