Description

The Hogarth Press where I’m working, is in the heart of the literary world, with authors coming in all the time. For younger bookworms – and nostalgic older ones too – there’s the Slightly Foxed Cubs series, in which we’ve reissued a number of classic nature and historical novels. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin.

I think it’s his best one, and I say that because every single recipe is something you’d make tonight, for supper, with no fuss or stress . The RA is a unique institution, an independent charity with a mission to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists, where art is made, exhibited and debated. Each one a letter to a friend, a story of something I have made for dinner, the tale of how it came to be on my table. p>From the first jam tart Nigel made with his mum standing on a chair trying to reach the Aga, through to what he is cooking now, this is the ultimate Nigel Slater collection brimming with over 200 recipes. A salad tossed together with broad beans, salted ricotta and the first white-tipped radishes of spring; a roast chicken, its crisp skin served with a fat jug of its roasting juices on an autumn day or a gloriously messy platter of grilled aubergines, hummus and torn flatbread shared with the best of friends.Every time Nigel Slater announces a new book, I quickly make a spot next to all his other books that sit on my bookshelf. Watching the progress of dinner as you stir onions in a pan, at first crisp, white and pungent – you may have shed a tear - then slowly becoming translucent gold, darkening to bronze, all the time becoming softer, sweeter. Mrs Woolf, wife of the manager, is a very celebrated author and, in her own way, more important than Galsworthy. A longtime food columnist in the UK and the author of fifteen previous books, he cooks food which is sometimes unmistakably British—Cumberland sausage with cheddar roasted-potato mash; smoked haddock and mussel pie—and a page or two later he’s suggesting food which is resolutely, nimbly not of any single tradition: broccoli with pumpkin seeds and bread crumbs; ground lamb with lime and cilantro.

From the first jam tart he made with his mum standing on a chair trying to reach the Aga, through to what he’s cooking today, A Cook’s Book is the ultimate Nigel Slater collection. Slightly Foxed brings back forgotten voices through its Slightly Foxed and Plain Foxed Editions, a series of beautifully produced little pocket hardback reissues of classic memoirs, all of them absorbing and highly individual. Good-humoured, unpretentious and a bit eccentric, it's more like having a well-read friend than a subscription to a literary review. There is something - and this is the point really - that goes hand-in-hand with making something to eat, that transcends putting the finished dish on the table.For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. The best recipes are those that not only work but a delight to read, contain a useful tip or two, and guide the reader to a useful result with ease. p>
