it was amazing
Read in July, 2009

There are a few books about food I read each year that I know within about four pages that not only am I going to need to acquire, but I'm going to end up stuck in the house reading each page, captivated, and am going to spend the next several weeks cooking avidly out of, and then use forever more on a regular basis.

Nigel Slater's "The Kitchen Diaries" is definitely one of these books.

Slater goes through a year of his own meals, sometimes giving full recipes, other times just offering a little mention of the perfect vegetable he found at the market, or notes and memories of his childhood.
It certainly isn't just a cookbook, but a real narrative he weaves - one that makes me very hungry indeed.

Everything he cooks is beautifully simple in it's list of ingredients - real, delicious food stripped to it's essence, without a bunch of fuss.

I'm going to recommend this to everyone.
