Actually tried a few recipes which were very simple and only needed a few basic ingredients. What can I say? May 22, Kevin Burke rated it it was amazing. Nigel's recipes rarely disappoint, and I cook from this book all the time. As always, his little asides and observations are as delicious as the food.
Worthy of its place beside the cooker! I have an old paperback of the Nigel Slater book, Real Fast Food, and a couple of others and love its simplicity and wealth of ideas and lack of illustrations. This new one was, I thought, not quite as good, being a little more 'style over substance' with lots of white space and perhaps less actual content. Some of the recipes are not what I would call 'fast', such as stews and slow roast meat dishes etc so not sure the title is quite right for this collection.

Jan 11, Sharon Wildfang rated it it was amazing. Liked the relatively simple recipes and numerous variations thereon. If I had room for even one more cookbook, I would definitely consider adding this to my collection! Nov 05, Nerisa Eugenia Waterman rated it it was amazing. When I received this cookbook I was surprised how exceptionally small this book was, with recipes I was expecting something huge. However, I could not stop thinking how this book reminded me of those Holy Bibles you still find in some of those fancy hotels.
Now as I stated this book is smaller than the average cookbook that I believe could be a blessing… Why? Well…I could just throw this cookbook in my tote bag and head to the supermarket or farmers market and decide on a whim what to cook for dinner tonight. However with every blessing… there is a curse…. I also had a very hard time getting this cookbook to stand upright in my cookbook holder and I found myself grabbing the book to read the recipe…which is… a big NO in my world. However this is not enough of a reason to give up on this cookbook, this cookbook is a treasure trove of simple and amazing recipes and I had a hard time choosing which recipe to start with…this cookbook is definitely one of those cookbooks you just have to cook your way through…and I did for three days.
With amazing food photography by photographer Jonathan Lovekin, and each recipe having an amazing photograph to accompany it, this foodie was definitely inspired and hit the kitchen and start cooking. So what recipes did I choose? I love a cookbook that takes you on the wild side and encourages you to try something new…. Especially with this cookbook on your kitchen shelf. And so with that said…. Dec 27, Tina rated it it was amazing Shelves: How wonderful it would be to follow Nigel around for a few months and learn some of his methods. Gardening is the challenge for me and he has such lovely gardens, but I digress.
If you are looking for a cookbook with a traditional format then this may not be for you. He writes in a smooth flow embedding recipes into the conversation. What I liked Well, just about everything! The writing style, the simplicity of the recipes, his focus on nutrition and the variations you can try with each recipe. The cloth cover is lovely but I will worry about stains.
As I mentioned above, my concern is when I am cooking my hands get oily or stained with juices.

This image below on my blog looks like the European version. I like that cover better: So many recipes to try but I was lucky enough to have a friend who lives in England share a few from her copy. I have made Marmalade Chicken and Pork and Figs so far. Next up will be a pasta dish with cream, mushrooms and bacon — Yum! It feels a cheat to say I am done with this book because I am still reading it here and there. I have made the squash muchroom bake since writing the first part of my review.

Eat: The Little Book of Fast Food
Or perhaps that weekend game deserves a picnic afterwards of sandwiches and wraps witha few side dishes of salads thrown in. Running a little late in the morning then go for the breakfast burger. From full meals to snacks there is something in this extensive book that covers it, including desserts. One that caught my eye that I have not been brave enough to try yet is the Banana Cheesecake. Give me time and it will happen. There are so many recipes to try that you will never get bored with Eat by Nigel Slater.
It will also make a great gift for a new cook as well. Barnes and Noble link: The Reading Room link: Oct 06, Gabrielle rated it liked it Shelves: This is a "cute" book. I'm a big fan of Nigel Slater and I've been known to curl up on the couch with both "Ripe" and "Tender" and just flip through them lovingly like a photo album of all your favorite people. The food looks lovely. I'd be happy to order almost any of these in a restaurant, any time, anywhere. For a book of recipe This is a "cute" book. For a book of recipes that ought to be fast and easy, as some reviewers have noted "Eat" is overwhelmingly 'gourmet.
This is for when you feel like making something gourmet but more or less effortless and you have the time to swing by the Whole Foods--or your regional equivalent--and order up some freshly butchered lamb chops or pick up a pound or two of mussels and a Spanish sherry or grab some of those brown shrimp not the pink kind, and definitely not the frozen bags that most of us probably use.
The recipes are also overwhelmingly meat- and dairy-heavy.

Again, I'd be happy to order any of these up on a night out. But on a daily basis I eat lighter foods, mostly vegetables and grains, and maybe that's another reason why "Eat" is going back to the library and "Ripe" and "Tender" claim pride of place on my bookshelf and in my heart. I was thrilled to receive a hardback copy of this delightful cookbook from Blogging For Books.
At first I was taken aback by the format as it reads more like a novel than a cooking aid. It isn't designed to lean against the counter for step by step instructions.
I have had the book for a few weeks now. I find that I do read it like a novel and always put it down hungry and ready to create a meal with flavor and simplicity in mind. Many of the ingredients are foreign to me; the British author uses I was thrilled to receive a hardback copy of this delightful cookbook from Blogging For Books. Many of the ingredients are foreign to me; the British author uses items not found in the north Georgia mountains grocer's inventory. One of the strengths of the book is the author's suggestions on modifying his recipes and it is easy enough to craft a satisfying dish.
The recipes are designed for one or two people which is very helpful for this retired grandmother. There aren't a ton of leftovers and tomorrow brings an opportunity to try something new! Looking forward to referring to this book for ideas for years to come Oct 14, Catriona rated it it was amazing.

I made the chickpea, tomato and spinach stew last night, and feel incredibly sad today that i forgot to bring the leftovers to work for lunch and now have to have some poxy sandwich instead.

The index at the back makes it easy to look up a main ingredient that you have lurking at the back of the cupboard dusty cans of chickpeas perhaps? This is a simple, handy, beautiful little recipe book - I can't imagine it not being a welcome addition to a kitchen.

OK, I haven't yet tried any of the recipes so I can't comment on whether or not they work, but I certainly plan to. I've bookmarked about 40 recipes to try. I'll report back on success when I've tried a few. I'm a bucket-chemist kind of cook so these are the kind of recipes that appeal to me, and I find his laconic, laid-back writing style encouraging. I like the variations on the main recipe which inspires me to think of my own and that, with a few exotic exceptions, the ingredients are Yum!
I like the variations on the main recipe which inspires me to think of my own and that, with a few exotic exceptions, the ingredients are mostly the kind of things one would have in the kitchen anyway. And I love the idea that leftovers can be made into something new and exiting rather than just reheated.
Eat: The Little Book of Fast Food by Nigel Slater
Aug 30, Christina rated it really liked it. I saw this book last year and remember strongly disliking the format. In the name of "fast" food there are no itemized list of ingredients preceding the recipe, plus many of the recipes seemed to have too many gourmet ingredients to convince me that these are fast and easy recipes. However, in the past year my pantry has grown and I've gotten more into cooking, so I decided to give this book another chance.
Upon reevaluation, there really are some fast recipes if you have a built up pantry and 5 I saw this book last year and remember strongly disliking the format. Upon reevaluation, there really are some fast recipes if you have a built up pantry and mins to spare. This book claims to contain "fast" recipes that can be made in less than an hour and yet are still rather gourmet. I found the recipes to be rather labor intensive and, as stated, they do contain many gourmet ingredients. I like that many of the "recipes" do not have measurements - just suggestions for amounts and the cook can go from there.
While some of the photographs are lovely, others seemed rather plain looking.

I received this book free to review from Netgalley. Dec 28, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is nearly perfect, in scope and size and color and everything. If you are a cook looking for detailed instructions, this may not be a good fit, but if you cook like me, taking inspiration from an ingredient or dish you enjoyed at a restaurant, etc.
I just can't express how much I love Nigel Slater as a cookbook author. Nov 11, Elena rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is not terribly informative or instructive when it comes to basics, and takes a very odd view towards "fast" food. Like yeah, ok, I know I can put some stuff on bread and have it taste good. But for me, the fundamentals of being able to put food together when I'm out of ideas is not relying on specifics. This book fails on that front.
