I had been longing for this book for quite a while. One day, perusing the sale books at Barnes and Noble, I stumbled upon a copy of Nigella Kitchen marked to $12…bargain!
If you are a fan of Nigella Lawson this is one of her many cookbooks you will want.
Beautiful photos, lots of easy recipes, a huge section for the sweet tooth, a few pages of cocktails and many good dinner recipes.
So far I have cooked Chicken Greek herb sauce, Lamb with rosemary and port and Leeks with mushrooms.
I also adapted the aforementioned leeks and mushrooms recipe to be a side dish with a grilled T-bone steak. I sautéd the mushrooms and leeks in butter, sea salt and added a healthy dollop or two of Marsala. Very nice side to combine with a bite of grilled steak.
The Crustless Pizza was very good and super easy to make. The recipe (and more photos) may be found at Squirrel Head Manor
It went very well with pumpkin beer.
