Sometimes you pick up a book and from the very first paragraph it has you hooked. Recently this has been happening to me with a few of my cookery books, but this week while I was up in Scotland I started reading this book and it has been the best and most inspirational of reads I have had for a long time. I struggled to put it down, and picked it back up at every opportunity.
Nigel's style of writing and cooking are just so right for me. His ethos of buying locally, seasonally and fresh, and picking from his own veggie patch are so in tune with what I am trying to do this year. He admits when he just has cravings for fish fingers and has a mad dash to the corner shop to buy them (and gets spotted and tut, tutted at). It has been lovely to sit each day and dip into this book, to mark the pages so I can find recipes I want to try out and just to slip into his culinary world a little and lose myself in the wonderful pictures.
It's not often that I use my Blog to recommend a book, in fact I don't think I've done it to this extent before, but this is definitely a book worth having if you're even slightly food minded. I got mine from Amazon, at a very reasonable price! I'm going to dip into some more of his books now to see if they can match up to this. ~
