Kitchen Diaries II: A Year of Simple Cooking
One of Britain's best-loved food writers, author of Toast and Tender and presenter of BBC One's Simple Suppers, returns with his beautiful and inspiring companion volume to the acclaimed The Kitchen Diaries.
The Kitchen Diaries was one of the most acclaimed food books of recent times. With The Kitchen Diaries II: A Year of Simple Suppers, Nigel Slater returns to this inspiring structure - recording the food he buys, prepares, eats and shares throughout the year. With over 300 recipes, many from his hugely successful TV series, Simple Suppers, The Kitchen Diaries II is full of classic Slater ideas, from a cider loaf to start the new year, to an indulgent chicken and leek pie or a simple, fresh salad of pears and bitter leaves.
