Description

Her section on rhubarb is to die for — so many ways to simply cook and serve a bunch of deliciousness.

Cook, Eat, Repeat is a delicious and delightful combination of recipes intertwined with narrative essays about food.Most of her recipes are created for 4 people, but she offers changes for many to cook them easily for 2 or even 1 instead. And on why she doesn’t have “guilty pleasures”: “Taking pleasure in the food we eat is an act of gratitude. Nigella študovala literatúru a jazyky na Oxforde a jej "lingvistické ja" je v tejto knihe značne cítiť. This book - her greatest since How to Eat in 1998 - is about embracing the idea of cooking as a series of soothing rituals.

It’s both an explanation that she, the recipe creator, is working within the limitations of her kitchen and available ingredients, and tacit approval for us, the recipe user to adapt recipes as necessary. Food, for me, is a constant pleasure: I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning and beauty as well as sustenance and structure. Nigella is like your culinary big sister - organised, a bit bossy, but she gets results and likes a slug of Campari so all’s well.It is a series of wonderful essays about food and eating written by a passionate foodie and professional cook. I’m itching to make almost every single thing from this book, and really appreciate the way that she encourages home cooks to experiment and make dishes personal. This book, though I appreciate her reflections particularly during a time of uncertainty - what will eating in community look like after lockdown, what will holidays look like - and this book released in the UK in 2020. I don’t think I actually groan out loud when I’m asked, every time I’m interviewed, ‘What are your guilty pleasures?

No, it’s not your regular recipe/cookery book of recipe, photo, recipe , photo repeat which has a place and we all enjoy them.

She’s so authoritative, in fact, that she makes me eager to try foods I would usually give a definite miss. Ja si z tejto knihy odnášam predovšetkým jedno: a to je to, že spôsob, akým varíme, je častokrát spôsob, akým žijeme. This is more like essays punctuated with recipes - and with frequent digressions into other things that you can do with the ingredients or ways you can vary it.

Food, for me, is a constant pleasure: I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning and beauty, as well as sustenance and structure. Food, for me, is a constant pleasure: I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning and beauty… More than just a mantra, “cook, eat, repeat” is the story of my life.

Read it for the careful pushback against what Instagram has done to eating; read it for luxurious ideas on how to treat yourself (it's not for nothing that Lawson says making a creme caramel for one person is ridiculous—and then proceeds to tell you how); read it for a gleeful reminder of how delicious and wonderful food and eating can be. I'm a pretty mediocre cook myself, so I approach her cooking books more for her writing, not so much her recipes. Nigella debunks the latter by helping us celebrate what we have and challenging us to explore what we may not like or take for granted. Food, for me, is a constant pleasure: I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning and beauty . Dedicated chapters include 'A is for Anchovy' (a celebration of the bacon of the sea), 'Beetroot and Me', 'A Vegan Feast', a shout out for 'Brown Food', a very relatable 'How To Invite People for Dinner Without Hating Them (or Yourself)', plus new ideas for Christmas.
