The new cookbook by the star of Nigella Bites on Style Network--who has her own New York Times Dining section column--featuring summer recipes for the whole year-round.
How to Be a Domestic Goddess was a wonderful book about baking, and Nigella Bites featured even more enticing recipes. Now in Forever Summer, Nigella Lawson concocts warm-weather recipes that prolong that lazy summer feeling throughout the entire year. Fresh, innovative, versatile and delicious, Nigella combines her breezy style with delicious food to make an irresistable cookbook. Including succulent Spanish and Italian dishes, Mediterranean roasted vegetables and barbecued sea bass, Moroccan roast lamb and Mauritian prawn curry, to the traditional strawberries-and-cream British desserts, it's all mouthwatering.
Other recipes include:
- Vanilla Shortbread
- Srawberry Meringue Layer Cake
- Chicken Salad with Spinach
- Black and Blue Beef
- Rack of Lamb with Mint Salsa
- Flatbread Pizzas
- Happiness Soup
It?s sensuous summer all year long with Nigella -- in a fabulous new cookbook that draws on the best from all over the world: to tie in with her new 8-part television series.
Summer food doesn?t have to be eaten just in summer. Even on our coldest days, indeed especially then, we need to summon up a little warmth on our plate. Summer cooking is relaxed cooking that conjures up a mood of sunny expansiveness: easy cooking, easy eating. No one wants to slave over a hot stove for hours: the keynote, as ever with Nigella, is simplicity. The ideal is of lazy abundance.
The food of Italy and Spain, the fragrant mezze of the Eastern Mediterranean, the traditional strawberries-and-cream feel of an English summer afternoon: all these notes and flavours are reflected in Forever Summer. The uniting force is attitude as well as palate so the food is far-reaching but personalised, and fresh so that it fits in with the way we live. It?s a way of celebrating summer while it lasts, and extending it into the months beyond.
Forever Summer has the practical appeal of a cookbook as well as the aspirational lure of a travel book, the sort one might flick through longingly in winter, dreaming of much-needed sunshine.
