Nigella Lawson is a champion of the home cook and her new book celebrates the food she loves to cook for friends and family. The recipes are warming, comforting, and inspirational, from new riffs on classic dishes - including Chicken FricassUe and Sticky Toffee Pudding - to adventures in a host of new dishes and ingredients, from Aubergine Fatteh to White Miso Hummus.AT MY TABLE includes dishes to inspire all cooks and eaters, from Hake with Bacon, Peas and Cider to Indian-Spiced Chicken and Potato Traybake and Chilli Mint Lamb Cutlets; plus a host of colourful vegetable dishes, like Eastern Mediterranean Chopped Salad and Carrots and Fennel with Harissa. No Nigella cookbook would be complete without sweet treats, and AT MY TABLE is no exception, with Emergency Brownies, White Chocolate Cheesecake and a Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Marmalade and Crome Fra-che set to become family favourites.As Nigella writes, 'happiness is best shared' and the food in this book will be served and savoured at your own kitchen table just as it is at hers.

This British writer/cook will expand your repertoire of dishes incredibly. It's fun to read, too. Many of her recipes are way too complicated for me, but some I'd love to try. One is a version of fish and chips with peas that would take hours. But the fish itself, dipped in egg, then in grits/polenta (no cheese here) and left to sit until the fish is totally crusted over, then fried, sounds heavenly and wouldn't take terribly long. It can be accompanied by pureed minted peas and/or fried small potatoes, which also look heavenly. Some Middle Eastern and Indian dishes also look lovely. Desserts abound, though some have many steps to them. She's been cooking and writing for decades, and the photography's wonderful too. So far I haven't tried any of the recipes but I've made copies.

I find it comforting that it reads as if Nigella is in the kitchen with you. There are many, many delicious, uncomplicated recipes. Quite a few push me out of my comfort zone in skill as a cook as well as flavors.

Beautiful book, amazing pictures to go with each recipe (I love that!). Is it wrong that when I read the book and her commentary, I heard Nigella's voice? hehehe

I always err on the side of generosity, believing that, whether in the kitchen or out of it, this is a happier way to be.
