About Tender: Volume I: A Cook and His Vegetable Patch

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

With over 400 recipe ideas and many wonderful stories from the cook’s garden, Tender: Volume I – A cook and his vegetable patch, is the definitive guide to cooking with vegetables from Britain’s finest food writer.

‘I would like to think I know more now than I did before I picked up my trowel and dug that first furrow of red and white radishes. How to get the best out of a vegetable yes, but also what are the different ways to treat it in the kitchen, which seasonings will make it sing, what other ingredients is it most comfortable or most exciting with. What are the classic recipes not to be missed by a newcomer and what new ways are there which might be of interest to an old hand.’__In his inimitable, unpretentious style Nigel Slater elevates vegetables to the starring role in his latest cook book, whether that means enjoying vegetables for their own sake or on the same plate as a piece of meat or fish. From crab cakes and crushed peas to broccoli and lamb stir-fry, luxury cauliflower cheese to a delicious broad bean salad, Tender has everything a cook could want from a recipe book.

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/)
