I have been hoping for some time for Nigella Lawson to write another book in the vein of her first one, How to Eat. However all of her follow up books have been more recipe collections than anything else, albeit with nicely written introductions and the casual recipe giving style that characterizes her breezy, accessible writing. I have just picked this up from the library and finished the introduction, yet it looks much more along the lines of How to Eat than anything yet. Much more along the lines of Nigel Slater's Appetite or Real Food, this looks like a winner. Which is a very good thing indeed.

UPDATE: unfortunately the book didn't live up to its early promise. It is probably fine if you want lots of recipes with a bit of commentary. As I said before, I liked How to Eat which had a much greater mixture of overall food writing which was illustrated in a way by the recipes. Or so it seems to me ...
