Fresh, innovative, versatile and delicious, it's summer all year round and from around the world with Nigella. With all the style and class of her earlier books, and a whole new concept, this is an irresistible and wide-ranging book of summery recipes which can be eaten at any time -from scrumptious Italian antipasti and Greek mezze to Spanish cuisine, from barbecues to beach picnics, from Moroccan roast lamb to Mauritian prawn curry, from the traditional strawberries-and-cream feel of an English summer afternoon to Indian-summer evenings at home, from light lunches to seductive suppers; and with a selection of unusual icecreams and melt-in-the-mouth puddings to die for.
Summer cooking is relaxed cooking, for days when we want to conjure up a mood of sunny expansiveness even in the darkest months. Easy cooking, easy eating. No one wants to slave over a hot stove for hours: the keynote is simplicity, freshness, enjoyment. It's a way of celebrating summer not only while it lasts, but extending it through the year. This gorgeous book, written with all Nigella' s characteristic flair and passion, ties in with her new Channel 4 TV series and contains 40 or so additional recipes added exclusively for the book. Another groundbreaking design, ravishingly illustrated in full colour.
