A Cook’s Book is the story of Nigel Slater’s life in the kitchen.
From the first jam tart he made with his mum standing on a chair trying to reach the Aga, through to what he’s cooking today, A Cook’s Book is the ultimate Nigel Slater collection. Alongside more than 200 recipes, he recalls the first time he ate a baguette in Paris, his love of jewel-bright Japanese pickled radishes and discovering the best way to roast a chicken. Chapters include: a slice of tart, a chicken in the pot, everyday greens, the solace of soup and the ritual of tea.
