About The Kitchen Diaries: A Year in the Kitchen. UK Edition

Publisher Web Link: http://www.harpercollins.co.uk/

Following the success of ‘Real Food’ and ‘Appetite’, this is the tenth book from Nigel Slater, the award-winning food writer and author of the bestselling autobiography, ‘Toast’.

‘The food in “The Kitchen Diaries” is simply what I eat at home. The stuff I make for myself, for friends and family, for visitors and for parties, for Sunday lunch and for snacks. These are meals I make when I stop work, or when I am having mates over or when I want to surprise, seduce or show off. This is what I cook when I’m feeling energetic, lazy, hungry or late. It is what I eat when I’m not phoning out for pizza or going for a curry. This is the food that makes up my life, both the Monday to Friday stuff and that for weekends and special occasions.’ ‘Much of it is what you might call fast food, because I still believe that life is too short to spend all day at the stove, but some of it is unapologetically long, slow cooking. But without exception every single recipe in this book is a doddle to cook. A walk in the park. A piece of p***.’ ‘Fast food, slow food, big eats, little eats, quick pasta suppers, family roasts and even Christmas lunch. It is simply my stuff, what I cook and eat, every day. Nigel’s food – for you.’ (http://www.harpercollins.co.uk/)

Author Information

About Nigel Slater

Author Web Link: http://www.nigelslater.com/

NIGEL SLATER is a cook who writes. He has been the food columnist for The Observer for seventeen years and is presenter of BBC1’s Simple Suppers. Author of seven cookery books, including Appetite and The Kitchen Diaries, his latest book is the two-volume Tender (Autumn 2010). The film of his childhood memoir Toast is currently in post-production and due to be shown later in the year.

Author, columnist and broadcaster, he remains very much an amateur cook. Nigel is not a chef. His food is understated, straightforward home cooking that is easy to accomplish and without a trace of what he affectionately calls ‘celebrity cheffery’. He is not fond of fussy food and prefers simple suppers made with care and thought. He believes that making something good to eat for your self or for others can lift the spirits in the way little else can.

“There is something quietly civilizing about sharing a meal with other people. The simple act of making someone something to eat, even a bowl of soup or a loaf of bread, has a many-layered meaning. It suggests an act of protection and caring, of generosity and intimacy. It is in itself a sign of respect.”

In November 2009 Nigel was presented with the award of Food Personality of the Year at the BBC Food and Farming Awards by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and was recently awarded an honorary degree (Master of Letters) from the University of Wolverhampton.

Nigel is currently working on the second series of BBC 1’s Simple Suppers and continuing his long-running weekly column for the Observer. A major BBC film of his autobiographical novel Toast is now in post-production for showing later in the year. Simple Suppers has just been awarded the Guild of Food Writers Television Programme of the Year, and Nigel has been named as The Good Housekeeping Institute Television Cook of the Year. (http://www.nigelslater.com/)
