I didn't like this as much as Real Fast Food. Nigel said he wrote it because he'd got letters saying they felt he'd temped them back to the kitchen but deserted them when it came to desserts (pun intended)... Well I don't really feel much better after reading this! It felt to me like there was a lot of filling, mostly variations on (1) fruit with cream, (2) fruit with cheese, (3) fruit with alcohol and (4) fruit salad. Dotted within this are occasional useful basic recipes like fool, crumble, brûlée, custard and rice pudding -that said the proportions of flour to butter in the crumble recipe I followed were wrong... His writing is still inspiring but it not the best Nigel, I recommend the original book Real Fast Food that I linked above, or The Kitchen Diaries: A Year in the Kitchen with Nigel Slater.
