‘Yes, I eat cake, and ice cream and meat. I eat bread and drink alcohol too. What’s more, I eat it all without guilt.’
Nigel Slater is joining us at the bookshop to sign copies of his glorious third instalment his classic Kitchen Diaries series, A Year of Good Eating. His joyous food writing, gentle garden musings and kitchen confessionals have earned him the reputation as one of our most important and best-loved cookery writers.
This new volume explores the balance and pleasure in eating well throughout the year. The leisurely recipes and kitchen stories of the Diaries are ingeniously interspersed with seasonal sections of quick, weeknight suppers. A pot roast guinea fowl with pears and walnuts for when you have time to cook; rice, carrots and cashews when the fridge is almost empty or quick baked eggs and greens for when you need to get dinner on the table fast.
