KITCHEN: Recipes from the Heart of the Home

The Domestic Goddess herself has done it again, presenting to you Nigella Lawson's newest addition to the cookbook family, "Kitchen: Recipes from the Heart of the Home." What a beautiful title, summing up just exactly what a kitchen is.

Nigella says, “…this book is simply the story of my love affair with the kitchen. Whatever the opposite of the currently still fashionable genre, the misery memoir, might be, this is it: a comfort chronicle.”

Her book focuses on the food we eat now, and the way we eat and live in this hectic world. A collection of recipes of "feel-good food" from the most impotant room in the house. Kitchen is not only engaging but informative offering up answers to everyday cooking quandaries. The recipes she offers up are nostalgic with a modern twist, from quick style recies for the crazy work week, to lovely slow-cooked dishes for weekends and special occasions. "Above all, she reminds the reader how much pleasure there is to be had in real food and in reclaiming the traditional rhythms of the kitchen."

This one is not to be missed!
