A Cook’s Book by Nigel Slater

- 4TH ESTATE: £30 GOOD FOR: ANYONE WHO LOVES COOKING

Nigel Slater’s books never disappoint, and this, his latest, is a weighty tome bursting with exceptiona­l food writing and 200 inspiratio­nal recipes. Nigel takes the simplest of ingredient­s and turns them into comforting food, eschewing fuss, foams and Instagram-friendline­ss.

The genius of this book, aside from the writing and the subtle, evocative images, is the neatly organised recipes indexed by ingredient; find what you have, and there will most likely be one if not several recipes for it.

Cooking aside, this is a book also to enjoy for the descriptiv­e stories too. I doubt you will find it hard to not leap up from the sofa and head to the kitchen.
