Author(s): Nigella Lawson
A feast for the eyes and the senses. Written with characteristic flair and passion, a great new book in the style and tradition of her classic How To Eat, Nigella applies those same 'pleasures and principles of good food' to the celebrations and special occasions of life, from feast days to familiar rites of passage.
Destined to become a classic like How To Eat, written with the same gorgeously sensual, evocative and inimitable style, and packed with over 200 recipes from all over the world and from near to home, Feast proclaims Nigella's love of life and great food to celebrate it with. Essentially about families and food, about public holidays and private passions, about how to celebrate the big occasions and the small everyday pleasures - those times when food is very definitely much more than fuel - it includes everything from Christmas, Thanksgiving and Birthdays, to Passover and a special Sardinian Easter; from that first breakfast together to a meal fit for the In-Laws, from seasonal feasts of strawberries or chestnuts to the ultimate chocolate cake Hall of Fame; from cocktail food for cheering up the 'Unhappy Hour' to funeral baked meats, from a Georgian feast to a Love-Fest; from Nigella's all-time favourite dish to a final New Year fast. Heartwarming, sensual, passionate, informed, refreshingly uncomplicated and full of ideas, this is Nigella at her best, with helpful menus for whole meals, too, and more than 120 glorious colour photographs.
Nigella is the author of 4 bestselling books, How to Eat, How to Be a Domestic Goddess (both now available in paperback), Nigella Bites and Forever Summer, which together with various successful Channel 4 TV series have made hers a household name in several continents.
