Notes from a Small Kitchen Island: 'I want to eat every single recipe in this book' Nigella Lawson



'I am so greedily impatient for this book. I want to read it. I want to cook from it.'
Nigella Lawson

I've been to a lot of places. I've cooked a lot of things. But I am never more content than when I am in my London kitchen, wondering what we will have for dinner.

In this book, I share my secrets for creating delicious meals every day, without pretending to weave my own water or knit my own tahini. I offer up the life- and dinner-saving lessons I've learned in all of the kitchens I have cooked in, and share the daring tales of disaster too.

All the chapters are shot through with tales of my favourite meals, foreign and domestic, from margarita pie baked one golden Texan summer, and dinners cooked for diplomats in a tiny Moscow kitchen, to weeknight dinners with ingredients foraged from my local Turkish supermarket in London, a city where myriad cultures mix, where every ingredient is available, and every single one comes with a story.

In this collection of warm, candid essays and over 70 recipes, food writer and Telegraph columnist Debora Robertson celebrates the comfort to be found in the everyday, the delight in the ordinary, and the joys, pleasures and challenges of domestic life, from roasting a chicken and making marmalade to learning how to throw a party without losing your mind.

"Nobody else writing about food has a voice like Debora Robertson's. She is sharp, witty and warm ... she's the friend you want to talk to on a Friday night, the one you hope will invite you to dinner and the one who will then give you the recipe for the dish you devoured.'
Diana Henry, Food Writer and Columnist
