Nigel Slater's sumptuous recipes are not about making fancy stocks and sauces or perfecting spun-sugar baskets. They are about using the best quality ingredients to make food that is a joy to eat. Freshness, simplicity and flavour: these are what count in the easy-to-follow and deliciously satisfying meals contained in Real Cooking.
'Nigel is a real lick-the-spoon sort of cook... He positively makes you want to cook his effortlessly simple dishes.'
Lindsey Bareham, Evening Standard
'Slater manages simultaneously to really teach something about cooking while conveying a sense of personality and hedonistic pleasure... A truly excellent book for people who love food... and also good for beginners.'
Richard Ehrlich, Independent on Sunday
