Multcolib My Librarian Heather: Favorite British cooks
Annotation:Nigella brings you into her life and tells you how she thinks about food, how meals come together in her head . . . and how she cooks for family and friends.
Annotation:"The trouble with much modern cooking is that the mood it induces in the cook is one of skin-of-the-teeth efficiency, all briskness and little pleasure. Sometimes that's the best we can manage, but at other times we don't want to feel stressed and overstretched, but like a domestic goddess, trailing nutmeggy fumes of baking pie in our languorous wake."
Annotation:Presents a collection of over a hundred fast recipes, including Asian-flavored chowder and no-worries chocolate mousse, accompanied by time-saving tips, recommendations for stocking a kitchen, and culinary strategies.
Annotation:Nigella Lawson shows readers how to prolong that warm summer feeling through even the darkest days of winter. Fresh, innovative, versatile, and delicious, this is an irresistible and wide-ranging volume full of summery recipes that can be eaten at any time.
Annotation:David's nine books, written with impeccable wit and considerable brilliance, helped educate the taste (and taste buds) of the postwar generation. Insisting on authentic recipes and fresh ingredients, she showed that food need not be complicated to be good.
Annotation:She introduced a dreary post-war Britain to the sun-drenched culinary delights of the Mediterranean; foods that have become the staples of our diets today. Her recipes brought color and life into kitchens everywhere.

It was Jamie Oliver who taught me how to make foccaccia, pizza, risotto, pesto sauce, and my favorite soup while Nigella makes comfort food easy, delicious, and fast! And E.D., well she changed the entire palate of a nation.
