Mehr über den Autor

Nigel Slater, geboren 1958 in Wolverhampton, zählt zu den besten Food-Journalisten der Welt. Er ist Autor vieler erfolgreicher Bücher und genießt in England nicht nur unter Spitzenköchen Kultstatus. Seit 20 Jahren schreibt er für den Observer eine Kolumne zum Thema Essen und drehte diverse Kochsendungen für die BBC. Zu seinen Büchern gehören die hochgelobten Bände >Tender - Gemüse< und >Tender - Obst<, >Das Küchentagebuch< sowie >Eat<, die alle bei DuMont erschienen sind.


How long does it take before somebody becomes a national treasure? It’s certainly happened to Nigel Slater, and Eating for England is a highly enjoyable reminder of just why we esteem the estimable Mr Slater. Subtitled The Delights & Eccentricities of the British at Table, this is wonderfully entertaining stuff, explaining such matters as how some of our most cherished foods are the result of frugality (bread and butter pudding, for instance, is the direct result of utilising a few slices of leftover bread and a pat of butter, rather than culinary aspiration). As Slater points out, the British have a relationship with food which is quite unlike that of any other nation -- for many years, we were reluctant to discuss food matters (leaving culinary discussion to, for instance, the French), but we now appear to be in the grip of a national food obsession, with program after program on television and -- inevitably -- a host of books on the subject. But few are written as entertainingly as Nigel Slater’s. It isn't just the discussion of food itself (from haute cuisine to the humblest of comfort foods) that’s so diverting here, but other sociological (and tongue-in-cheek) related matters, such as ‘A Teenager at the Table’ (‘The shoulders droop, the head hangs sulkily down, eyes glaring intently at an invisible spot on their lap. Their whole body seems to say ‘I'm not eating this’). And Nigel Slater is perfectly happy to address subjects not found in any other food books (such as the modest chocolate bar -- different varieties are entertainingly compared and contrasted).

This is a personal portrait of the British and their food, filled with love of the eccentricities and peculiarities that encapsulate the national character. And it's great fun. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


Praise for 'Toast' (HB): 'Everyone who loves good food warms to Nigel Slater's rich descriptive writing, but this touching memoir proves he's more than a cookery writer. Its emotional impact will strike a chord with many.' The Sunday Mirror 'Proves he can write mouth-wateringly about families and life, too: I gobbled it up.' Daily Telegraph Books of the Year 'It should come as no surprise that Slater's autobiography connects emotions, memory and taste buds. The genius of his food writing comes from an obvious belief that food and happiness share the same organ in the brain.' Lynne Truss, Sunday Times 'Toast is England's answer to Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential.' Daily Telegraph '[A] coming-of-appetite story.' Time Out 'Proves that Slater can write well about anything.' Joanna Blythman, Scottish Sunday Herald 'Food was the boy, is the man! It is his very ordinariness, the commonness of [his] story, that makes this wonderful, precise autobiographical journey so extraordinary.' Matthew Fort, Observer

A Great Read On the Subway, Treadmill, or Any Short Wait! 26. Februar 2012
Von Andrea Broomfield - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I loved Nigel Slater's Toast, and I very much enjoyed this book of short essays on all matters related to English food. Buried towards the end, I found a lovely essay, "The Cool, Modern Shopper Cook," and I think it best sums up what Slater most wishes for his country's attitudes towards food to become, as well as what he strives for himself as an Englishman, a cook, and an eater.

Some of the essays (paragraphs, really), are funny and droll, for example, "Things Move On," which points out how much easier life was when one simply needed a bowl of hot water and a squeeze of Fairy Liquid to do the dishes, as opposed to nowadays needing a "machine, dishwater tablets, rinse aid, dishwasher salt, a maintance contract and something called a dishwasher cleaner."

The shortness of the essays made this book perfect for moments when I found myself waiting and did not have the ability to devote time to sustained reading. I also found it particularly fun to read while on the treadmill, where my concentration is not at its best, but I am in need of something to take my mind off the fact that my intervals are getting harder and longer! Wanting to continue to read Slater's book helped motivate me to keep moving! I also appreicate the humor of reading about food while working out!

The book's organization is a bit perplexing, and so many short essays seem to belong in a unit, rather than being scattered about, slapped down (it appears) whenever Slater thinks of a topic again, or has more to say on the same topic. Toast, crumpets, high teas, muffins come up a lot, and his thoughts about them are sometimes repetitive. That's really a minor complaint, though, because sometimes I liked being reminded of what I had already read--it gave me more to think about than otherwise, perhaps.

Thanks, Nigel Slater, for your humor, history, and perspective!

Short celebrations of English food 9. Dezember 2012
Von S. Smith-Peter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is an interesting but not great book on what Nigel Slater has eaten over the course of his life. The sections are quite short, but there are certain recurring themes. The two that stand out the most are celebrations of obscure British biscuits (read: cookies) and gravy. These are separate themes, as no one, not even Slater, would want to mix them. The ways of making gravy, its components and cultural context and importance are all explored in a series of glistening short pieces.

I'm guessing that this is not Slater's major work, but it's fun to read, especially if you only have a few minutes at a time.
I love Nigel Slater 11. Juli 2014

I love this book and the author's style. It is a neverending reference to food and eating in England. I think if I were traveling in Great Britain I would avoid the franchises and eat at all the mom and pop restaurants and eating outlets This book also reminds me of Nigel Slater's book called Toast which is the author's own autobiography. I also love the way the author called horseradish as "horse-rubbish". I am glad that the author never lost his British accent. This is what makes it wonderful to listen to the non-stop prose of eating in England.

I really enjoyed his descriptions of food in this book, even though at first when I bought it I thought it had recipes. I definitely would read this again.

Great book,could'nt put it down. Helps if yr British to understand our eating habits and strange love of odd foods. Found myself laughing out loud a few times and getting a few odd looks from my Greek wife.
