    About "Nigella Lawson"

    1. Nigella Lawson

      Nigella Lawson is the daughter of former Conservative cabinet minister Nigel Lawson now Lord Lawson and the late Vanessa Salmon, socialite and heir to the Lyons Corner House empire, who died of liver cancer in 1985 Lawson attended Godolphin and Latymer School and Westminster School before graduating from Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, with a degree in Medieval and Modern Languages.Lawson wrote a restaurant column for the Spectator and a comment column for The Observer and became deputy literary editor of the Sunday Times in 1986 She became, among other things, a newspaper reviewer on BBC1 Sunday morning TV programme Breakfast with Frost She has also co hosted, with David Aaronovitch, Channel 4 books discussion programme Booked in the late 1990s, and was an occasional compere of BBC2 s press review What the Papers Say , as well as appearing on BBC radio.Following slots as a culinary sidekick on Nigel Slater s Real Food Show on Channel 4, she has fronted three eponymous TV cookery series broadcast in the UK on the channel She has had two series of Nigella Bites in 1999 2001, plus a 2001 Christmas special, and Forever Summer with Nigella in 2002, both of which yielded accompanying recipe books Her style of presentation is often gently mocked by comedians and commentators, particularly in a regularly occurring impersonation of her in the BBC television comedy series Dead Ringers , who perceive that she plays overtly upon her attractiveness and sexuality as a device to engage viewers of her cookery programmes, despite Lawson s repeated denials that she does so.She was voted author of the year at the 2001 British Book Awards More than 2 million copies of her books have been sold worldwide.

    1. I own one Nigella Lawson book, called Forever Summer I enjoyed Feast much it is much broader in its scope, and you get a better feel for just how funny Ms Lawson is She is a woman who has faced adversity, losing a husband and a sister to cancer She loves food and is not afraid to admit standing in front of the fridge, eating something straight from the carton, juice dripping down her chin.This book covers celebrations of all types and includes a chapter on Funeral Feasts Fabulous.I marked sever [...]


    2. My wife saw the tail end of Nigella s Christmas Special on TV and was entranced I was detailed to go pick up the book at Waterstone s when I went in to town the next day I had never read any of her stuff deep rooted suspicions about celebrity chefs but I have to admit it s very good The recipes make sense, and she writes in a clear and amusing style.We followed her advice on roasting our turkey and making the gravy, and the general consensus was that it was probably our best yet in both departme [...]


    3. I am a long time fan of Nigella Lawson One night I could not sleep so I turned on the tv and there she was at 2 AM making up the most delicious pot of mashed potatos with nutmeg and refering to them as comfort food Between the jazz music food visuals and charm of that domestic goddess I got up and made myself a pot of mashed potatos and ate the whole thing then promptly went to sleep Just laugh Anyhow I have been a fan ever since I have a Kindle and what I love that they have done w this cookboo [...]


    4. I picked up this book to cheer myself up a bit at the end of the winter season Little did I know that I d be finishing it during a Blizzard.Anyway, mission accomplished I am inspired and reinvigorated I love this book because it is multi ethnic and multi religious and covers all of the major feasts.I, of course, found a couple of recipes to try You will as well.Highly recommended.


    5. I devoured this book from cover to coverd now I m hungry and I ve developed a gloriously odd English accent Here s my complete review scandaliciousbookreviews.c



    6. Nigella is my original muse, she single handedly got me back into the kitchen and cooking when the days of making cookies with my grandmother passed and I had to start doing it on my own I have all of her books and honestly they are something one can actually cook from, my shelves are bending from the amount of cookbooks they house but only half are being used to make dinners and cakes, others I look at for inspiration and for pictures but Nigella s recipes are worth every penny one spends on a [...]


    7. Probably my favourite Nigella book I love to read and read cookbooks from cover to cover and Nigella is especially readable I haven t much watched Nigella, but her sensuous kitchen manner is well reported so I won t comment on that She s a highly privileged, posh and successful woman And these books are not just about Nigella s food, but about Nigella herself, I find And yet, despite the huge gap between our lifestyles, I find her food and her writing highly palatable It s difficult to escape th [...]


    8. I ve been reading Feast for months and months it seems I just keep renewing it from the library Feast has everything I love in a cookbook, namely glossy, vibrant, mouthwatering pictures cheeky write ups to accompany the recipes, as only a Brit could write recipes organized by meal, instead of the typical poultry veggie fish sections This is helpful for someone like me, who doesn t intuitively think of recipe pairings and is often left wondering if your meal goes together it s HUGE over 300 recip [...]


    9. I love Nigella s chatty writing style, not just in introducing the recipe but throughout the instructions And I love that I can practically hear her voice as I read The recipes I most want to try and believe I will like the best are the chili and the cheesecakelets with balsamic glazed strawberries Two recipes I remember watching her cook and that looked sounded especially good Butwhat I have tried is the honey chocolate cake I no longer remember why I was most inspired to make that one, even th [...]


    10. Hi I moved I have a big new kitchen And roommates that fix things if I promise them baked goods Which this book has Along with a chapter titled Chocolate Cake Hall of Fame But it also has things like ham in cherry coke, which I probably won t make because I m not big on the pork Unless it s in the form of bacon Or little baby smoky sausages crocked potted in A 1 Sauce And um This is my first grown up cookbook Does Betty Crocker count I don t think so I really can t count any book with that weird [...]


    11. Suki s been reviewing cookbooks, so I thought I d give a shout out to my personal domestic goddess, Nigella Lawson This cookbook, full of her favorites for every special occasion imaginable, from every major religion s high and holy days to your new boyfriends first night over , has a permanent place on my bookshelf even though it belongs to the library They re so nice at Glouster Branch no late fees and seemingly unlimited renewing Someday I will make an honest cookbook out of it and buy it for [...]


    12. The Domestic Goddess offered a look onto celebratory food such as for Thanksgiving, Christmas, the Eid, Birthdays, Easter you get the idea and brace yourself for a moment the book even included the food for mourning funeral The last section on a glimpse, perhaps should not be included in a book that says Food to Celebrate, but I must admit having gone through the whole book, that the recipes for the funeral leans towards remembrance and celebrating the life of a loved one.In this offering, Ms La [...]


    13. ahhhh Nigella her books are exactly like watching her on her shows there is no one quite like her She has been a very reliable cooking mentor to me over the years I have a handful of Nigella s recipes that I use quite regularly for example, I make her her One Pan Chicken and Sausage Bake with lemon and sage at LEAST once a month and have done so for the past 5 years my family never grows tired of it This book was such a great read I spent the entire weekend reading it and enjoyed every minute of [...]


    14. Awesome read I have only made one recipe from this book, but it turned out great I wanted to add this book to my cookbook collection, but I just spent a bunch of money on another one of her cookbooks, which was worth every penney spent Anyway, I kept picking it up and putting it down several times at the bookstore, imagine my surprise when I came across it in the clearance section on my way out of the store I got a 35 dollar cookbook for 7.99 It must have been meant to be I immediately came home [...]


    15. A good read, if only for the complete Britishness of it Nigella Lawson s descriptions are very luscious indeed, and she manages to make even the most mundane activities sound interesting My only quibble is with her suggestion that plastic wrap can go in the oven.Second hand experience from my daughter has proven otherwise, although perhaps it depends on the type of oven, gas or electric, one has Also, while preparing the Griddled Zuchinni, which was, admittedly, delicious, my kitchen was filled [...]


    16. In Feast, Nigella Lawson takes you on a tour of her recipes in a way that reads like many travelogues tell you about places with stories, rich description, and colourful events You feel like Lawson is chatting with you about her food and recipes, rather than just listing them for you, and the result is a book that even a non chef like myself can enjoy The recipes themselves have hit our dinner table courtesy of my husband, who can actually cook on many an occasion now, and this is definitely a b [...]


    17. THIS BOOK IS NOT VEGETARIAN ADAPTABLE for any friends who might be interested There is a vegetarian section, but the author definitely feels that, for her, meat is an essential part of holiday feasts That said The thing that I love about Nigella Lawson s work is her philosophy of life basically, that exercise and health food are fine, as long as someone else is doing them Eating should be first and foremost a pleasure, and if it isn t then you re doing It wrong This is how I ve always felt abou [...]


    18. Nigella strikes again What a beautiful book, and what lovely recipes It is mighty interesting to see a Brit s idea of Thanksgiving dinner the tip of roasting the bird breast side down is a KEEPER never made a juicier bird in my life Have yet to make a bad recipe from one of Nigella s books Nigella s sensual writing, her love of food AND words, and, best of all, her focus on truly enjoying the cooking AND eating process, is second to none She makes cooking fun, and sexy, and enticing Something al [...]


    19. Lots of good recipes and photos I got pretty tired of her pontificating on holidays and religion a lot of nonsense, coming from someone who s just a plain old hedonist I stopped reading those parts and just read the recipes.I saved some to try Tunisian lamb meatball stew with couscous, chilli chocolate pudding, lemon meringue cake, pasta primavera salad, quadruple chocolate loaf cake, apple cheesecake with butterscotch sauce, mughlai chicken curry , chocolate gingerbread just to name a few.


    20. Probably my second favourite Nigella Lawson cookbook after How to Be a Domestic Goddess Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking There s a recipe here for almost every occasion Some of the recipes in this book I ve used so often that I know them off by heart and could probably do them in my sleep Chocolate Honey Cake, I m talking about you


    21. Feast is divided up into different occasions that might call for a feast Christmas, Passover, Easter, Funerals, Kiddie Feasts, etc And then the portions are usually large so it is great when you re cooking for others.I love Nigella s writing and her recipes I have read this cookbook cover to cover because I enjoy her writing so much This is my favorite cookbook of hers I made her Buche de Noel this week and I think the chocolate frosting might be the best I ve ever had and so easy I also enjoy h [...]


    22. Feast Truly celebrates A cross section of varied collection of recipes gathered from around the world, giving a Brief on the festivities and their Food specifics The Food writing once again mesmerises and inspires to know about each community Religion and their beliefs this time in FOOD How important it is to each one and community How Food and a specific Kind of dish is made for each occassion, be it the Passover , Esater or Rosh Hashanah This book is very educative and traditions are explored [...]


    23. Though I did not read every word, I am surprised how many recipes I copied in this book I found it charming and what I did read of her story, very enjoyable I copied a lot of recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas The cover of my book was red and sang of holiday This cover looks a bit everyday I would read the red covered book To whet your whistle allspice gravy, Christmas bubble and squeak, gingerbread muffins, apple horseradish sauce for pork , baci di ricotta, chocolate rice pudding.


    24. Ever since watching Forever Summer reruns on Food Network I have loved Nigella Her lyrical descriptions that dew you in and warm you show she is not your average cook book writer, she is an author I can read her cook books like a novel Her recipes have all turned out perfectly for me and are among my go to standards Pasta with Ham, Peas and Cream Hatchipuri, Guinness Cake This book is primarily a recipe book but she tells why each dish and holiday is important to her It even had holidays I had n [...]


    25. It s taken a while, but I m about half way through cooking all the recepies in this book And unlike a lot of other cook books out there, I find that the Nigella books need no extra ingredients With other books, I m too often adjusting the amount, or fiddling with the ingredients because it s otherwise too flat That isn t the case with Nigella Her recepies are exciting and inspiring They look just as tasteful in the book as they do on my plate Every recepie is exciting and really a celebration.


    26. I have a hard time knowing how to rate cookbooks I adore Nigella Lawson and love the concept of this book and hearing her thoughts about the recipes chosen for each feast or celebration I was pleased to see I ve already made one of the recipes featured the Rosemary Remembrance Cake But I m not certain how much I ll use this as a reference in my own cooking and gave it 3 stars as a result It s a good cookbook but I walk away from it not feeling overly inspired to tackle the recipes it contains.


    27. Good, but not quite as good as Nigella s How to Eat For starters she re uses some of the recipes from H2E in this for which she does apologise This is as the title suggests a little overblown and just doesn t quite satisfy as much as other books Having said that, her lentil and frankfurter soup is to die for


    28. there are not many cookery books you can actually sit down and read, but this is one, so i just thought it deserved a mentionus, Nigella s had a really hard life, everyone seems to die and she s still a good cook her idea for having roast chicken with mashed potato as a lazy dinner is my idea of heaven


    29. Even though some of these recipes are decided British and very nasty sounding , Feast reads like a book of poetry If you ve ever seen Nigella Feasts on Food Network, you know what I m talking about Her use of language to describe her methods and the foods crosses the boundaries of the senses in a delightful way
