I’ve been meaning to post this since January, however with one thing and other …
It all started in the first week of January with an intriguing slender volume in the bookcase of the Marie Celeste kitchen.
Who exactly was Nigel Slater? I’d never heard his name before, so I borrowed it and fell in love with his delightful narrative style.
Then I read about him at the wonderful (but sadly defunct) The Croft and was even more intrigued.
So, I searched for something more substantial than the borrowed volume and found The Book in the not-local branch library after our first yoga class.
After cooking one of the recipes, I knew this book must be mine. So, of course I purchased it from the best online bookstore in the universe.
And, now that I have found him, I’ve really been loving hiscolumn in The Observer.
How had I missed him before this?
We use Kitchen Diaries every week and everything we’ve made has been so utterly marvellous. You should really try to get your hands on a copy – even if you never cook anything from it, it is a wonderful read.
Oh, what about Don? Don doesn’t mind the least because he is pretty in love with him too.
