Nigella's most relaxed, achievable and delicious recipes to date, for the food she cooks and shares at her table every day.

Nigella Lawson is every home cook's goddess, and in this new book she returns to celebrating the food she loves to cook for friends and family every day. As Nigella writes, "The food in this book, that comes from my kitchen, is eaten at my table, and will be eaten at yours, is the food I have always loved cooking. It doesn't require technique, dexterity or expertise, none of which I lay claim to. Life is complicated; cooking doesn't have to be."

At My Table includes dishes to inspire all cooks and eaters, from Hake with Bacon, Peas and Cider to Indian-Spiced Chicken and Potato Traybake and Chili Mint Lamb Cutlets; plus a collection of colourful vegetable dishes, like Eastern Mediterranean Chopped Salad and Carrots and Fennel with Harissa.

The recipes are warming, comforting, and inspirational, from new riffs on classic dishes--including Chicken Fricassee and Sticky Toffee Pudding--to adventures in a host of new dishes and ingredients, like White Miso Hummus. And, no Nigella cookbook would be complete without sweet treats ; At My Table is no exception, with Emergency Brownies, White Chocolate Cheesecake and a Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Marmalade and Crème Fraiche set to become family favorites.

Nigella knows that "happiness is best shared," and the food in this book will be savoured and shared at your own kitchen table, just as it is at hers.

This British writer/cook will expand your repertoire of dishes incredibly. It's fun to read, too. Many of her recipes are way too complicated for me, but some I'd love to try. One is a version of fish and chips with peas that would take hours. But the fish itself, dipped in egg, then in grits/polenta (no cheese here) and left to sit until the fish is totally crusted over, then fried, sounds heavenly and wouldn't take terribly long. It can be accompanied by pureed minted peas and/or fried small potatoes, which also look heavenly. Some Middle Eastern and Indian dishes also look lovely. Desserts abound, though some have many steps to them. She's been cooking and writing for decades, and the photography's wonderful too. So far I haven't tried any of the recipes but I've made copies.

I find it comforting that it reads as if Nigella is in the kitchen with you. There are many, many delicious, uncomplicated recipes. Quite a few push me out of my comfort zone in skill as a cook as well as flavors.

Beautiful book, amazing pictures to go with each recipe (I love that!). Is it wrong that when I read the book and her commentary, I heard Nigella's voice? hehehe

I always err on the side of generosity, believing that, whether in the kitchen or out of it, this is a happier way to be.
