I bought this book whilst living in Sydney in 1999-found it in a bargain box for $9. I had just had a baby and already had a toddler- this book was brilliant. Tasty food using many store cupboard items. Nothing was labour intensive- couldn't cope with that with 2 littlies! Managed to do a few dinner parties using this book. Good food but incredibly simple to make- ticked all the boxes for me.
When I returned to the UK I felt the need to try Nigel's other books. I love his writing style, his wit,...more
This is a great little cook book, great for getting ideas about what to cook, and quickly! Even if you don't end up making any of the recipes in the book, it will give you ideas about flavour combinations, and how to approach quick cooking. There are a couple of recipes that I love, and make over and over again.

I enjoy Nigel Slaters no-nonsense simplicity. This cookery book is both inspiring and funny, which works for me.

one of my go-too books for weekday meals. Particularly like the Vinegar-Mustard chicken (think french bistro) as well as Sausages & lentils (the lentils are cooked with pancetta, onnion and mushrooms). Simple, warm, unpretenious cooking
I love Nigel Slater's shows and recipes.. they are humble and glamorous both at the same time.. this book is so well written that even a novice can cook comfortably..
This book offers and outstanding range of flavours, using mainly storecupboard ingredients. I love it.

Try his Morrocan flash fried chicken, it's lovely. I find his recipes very inspirational.
