If you consider eating with friends and family a joyful, indulgent celebration chances are you love a good feast. And who better to carefully guide you through the daunting task of preparing that Feast than the domestic goddess herself Nigella Lawson. Written in the tradition of Nigella Bites and How to Eat, Feast is a cookbook for the sensualist that wants to eat very well, but also wants to spend time enjoying the company of their guests instead of struggling with the creation of the meal. What sets Lawson apart is not that she's a good cookbook writer, but a strong writer period. Similar to her other books, Nigella's Feast is presented as part personal memoir, part educational, and part recipe presentation. There is a nice blend of occasions including the obvious (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, and Easter), a few culturally specific ones (Rosh Hashanah, Georgian Feast, and Venetian Feast), feasts for kids, for vegetarians, and an elegant cocktail party. Each chapter begins with an overview of that particular "Feast." Generally, there is a personal story and experience told, an overview of the cultural importance of the feast, and a description of foods that are associated with each occasion. Impressively, every recipe begins with a personal anecdote giving that impression Nigella didn't just throw it in the book, but is experienced with the recipe and has used it with success. Take her twist on the decadent Chocolate Guinness Cake for example: "I wanted to make a cream cheese frosting to echo the pale head that sits on top of a glass of stout. It's unconventional to add cream but it makes it frothier and lighter which I regard as aesthetically and gastronomically desirable." Who can argue? The cake is to die for. So next time you need to prepare a dinner party let the goddess be your guide, and remember: Keep the preparation simple, use easily available ingredients, and take time to enjoy your guests and your meal. Feast may not be the most advanced cookbook you will own, but if you want to create excellent food with relative ease in a short amount of time, you can not beat Nigella. --Rob Bracco

Pressestimmen

"[Nigella’s] fifth book is the best since her first. As [did] How to Eat this book appeals to both the cook and the reader. Nigella’s feasts range from a funeral reception to a Passover seder always using tempting yet simple dishes."
—the cookbook store

"Impressive battle plans for grand dinners and family celebrations."
Maclean’s

"Britain’s resident sultry queen of the kitchen."
Flare

"
Britain’s finger-licking domestic goddess has morphed into a holiday deity with her latest cookbook, emphasizing that feasts for friends and family don’t have to be daunting."
The Chronicle Herald (Halifax) [Canadian Press]

"She’s funny and sexy, her food looks amazing and her blasé manner convinces even the most determined of kitchen loathers that cooking isn’t drudgery but something to be enjoyed. . . . The writing is witty, crisp and casual. . . .The photography is gorgeous in its simplicity and homeyness."
The Chronicle Herald (Halifax)

"A 472-page cookbook that features sumptuous recipes that honour the small everyday pleasures of life, as well as customary rites of passage."
The Leader Post (Regina)

"Like her other books, [Feast] is full of recipes both casual and fanciful, stunning photography and her endearing style of writing that’ll keep you happily reading for hours and inspire confidence in even the clumsiest of cooks."
The Hamilton Spectator

"Feast is simply the cream of the crop of holiday cookbooks."
Metro (Toronto)

"This book is as luscious and extravagant as the diva herself."
National Post

"
It’s beauty and the feast. . . . Lawson’s recipes are straightforward, never pretentious and easy to follow. . . . What’s neat about her books is her smart, sassy presence, guiding you through the cooking process."
The Standard (St. Catharines)

"A gem of a thick, fat book brimming with Nigella-isms."
The Toronto Sun

"A great sense of place and occasion in a recipe book... Nigella is a very talented and evocative food writer."
Time Out (UK)

"Nigella has become the idealised home maker de nos jours, the domestic cook we would all like to aspire to be, Mrs Beaton cum Constance Spry cum Jane Grigson cum Caroline Conran. Her recipes are rich and motherly and sustaining and sexy, just as she is. The finished dishes gleam up from the photographs, not artful, glossy and precise as if they had been made by a team of home economists and food stylists, but artless, homely and natural, as they would appear in our own kitchens…. Feast, like so much of Lawson’s work, is a voluptuous and delicious piece of food writing…. This is the kind of food we can dream of cooking."
The Guardian (UK)

Praise for How to Eat:
“Her prose is as nourishing as her recipes and makes How to Eat a book that should please mere readers as well as serious cooks and happy omnivores.”
—Salman Rushdie

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Mein erstes Kochbuch in englischer Sprache. Die Anleitungen sind mit ein bisschen Übung leicht zu übersetzen. Nigella schreibt wie immer mit viel Witz. Die Illustrationen sind so schön, dass man gleich Lust bekommt alles nachzukochen. Bisher habe ich mich nur an die Buttermilch-Bananen-Pancakes herangewagt. Sie waren superlecker.
Die Zutatenlisten sind überschaubar. Es gibt z.B. Chili-con-carne mit einem gebackenen Brotdeckel, ein ganzes Kapitel über Schokoladenkuchenrezepte, eins über Frühstücksgerichte, Ostern, Halloween, Thanksgiving, jüdische Familienrezepte, Rezepte aus Venedig, Georgien und vieles mehr. Einige der Zutaten bekommt man nur in England. Sie sind jedoch z.T. mit einheimischen Zutaten austauschbar.
Mein Fazit: Wenn das Buch in deutscher Übersetzung erscheinen sollte, ist es ein Kochbuch auch für Anfänger. In der englischen Originalfassung etwas für Hobbyköche die sich in der englischen Kochsprache ein wenig auskennen.

Lots of tasty recipes, and a story to go with most of them. Some of the recipes look a lot more complicated than they really are due to the long lists of ingredients, but just go ahead and try them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Das Lesebuch für große Kochaktionen 6. Januar 2012
Von MoHan
Format:Taschenbuch
Seitdem wir bei englischen Freunden einige Rezepte von Nigella probieren durften waren wir große Fans. Die Rezepte sind einfach zu lesen und mit "deutschen" Mengenangaben, d.h. Kilo statt Pfund, etc. Was das Buch zu einem besonderen Buch macht, sind die Texte, die den Rezepten voran gehen. Nigella beschreibt - in sehr schönem Englisch - welche Vorbereitungen nötig sind und was alles verändert werden kann oder passieren kann. Ein Truthahn-Essen für 20 Personen ist kein Problem mehr, wenn man auf Nigella vertraut :-)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good answers for "oh geez, what am I going to feed them?" 6. November 2004
Von Esther Schindler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nigella Lawson seems to be the kind of cookbook author who causes people to respond to *her* more than her recipes. I suppose some of that is inevitable, as she has the sort of sultry girl-next-door looks that make us ordinary women contemplate a pact with the devil. But the book is, after all, about the recipes and menu guidance she provides. And I think she does a very good job at that, indeed.

This isn't simply a "holiday recipes" book; Lawson takes the "feast" theme to heart, and gives recipes for all sorts of occasions in which you're apt to be called to the kitchen. Sure, that includes Thanksgiving and Christmas (which she lumps together), as well as Valentine's day and Rosh Hashanah. But it also includes "a Georgian feast" (whose menu includes green beans in herbed yogurt, walnut crescents, and a chicken stuffed with basmati, garlic, and sour cherries), several feasts for making with/for children (the Halloween recipes include a "slime soup" -- actually a pea and cheese soup), and even a set of dishes to cook for funerals and grieving friends. Not to mention feasts for oneself, such as things to cook at midnight.

As you may have gathered, these recipes are organized by the nature of the event, which could get tedious if you wanted to look for all the soup recipes. But isn't that the point?

The recipes -- let's get to the meat of the matter, so to speak. While I don't think I'm going to change all my traditional dishes, I'm guaranteed to be inspired by some of her suggestions. I certainly am looking forward to using up my Thanksgiving turkey leftovers in her "North American Salad" (wild rice, dried cranberries, cooked turkey, cranberry sauce, pecans and parsley). The "easy holiday trifle" -- which uses dried apricots, cardamom, and a panettone -- is likely to be my contribution to the Christmas buffet. And I'm planning to make the "stilton rarebit with walnut and bibb lettuce salad" this weekend. Hmm, maybe I'll do it _now_.

I own a lot of cookbooks that seem to have only one or two good recipes. This one clearly doesn't suffer from that affliction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Feast" is a "Feast," in every way. 21. Oktober 2004
Von Randall Koll - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I can say, without embarrassment, that it took Nigella Lawson to get me to cook. Through her words, wisdom, and her book "Forever Summer" - with it's abundance of lamb, mint, and lemon - Nigella not only introduced me to the ease of cooking, but also to the mystery of spices and spice mixtures such as Sumac and Zatar. And perhaps, more importantly, Nigella and "Forever Summer" provided me with a healthy portion of reliable recipes to cook, eat, and enjoy with friends. "Feast," is like part two of my culinary education.

"Feast" is full of recipes for good food, cookable food, the kind of food you want to eat. The kind of food you want on your table when you celebrate, entertain family and friends, or when it's just dinner for two or even one. True to Lawson's style, nothing is to fussy or labor intensive. Whatever labor you put in you get back ten-fold in the results.

While Lawson does occasionally borrow from her earlier books like "How To Eat" and "Nigella Bites," it's only to offer up a different version of the dish, and it's often even better. And, it's refreshing that when Nigella uses a recipe found in another cookbook, she gives credit to the chef and the book. Then of course she twists and tweaks the recipe: making it even better.

"Feast" is my fall 2004 cooking bible.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Take note if you're making the chocolate orange cake 23. Juli 2005
Von Ingrid George - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There is a mistake in the body of the recipe that may lead you to believe the cake contains butter. Supposedly, it does not, and this was a mistake on the part of the American publisher. I want future purchasers to know this so you won't have to spend an agonizing afternoon like I just did, second-guessing a recipe (and guessing wrong that butter does belong in the cake) the day before I planned to serve this cake at a party. (It's gluten free, great for your celiac friends.)

Now that I've got THAT off my chest ... I love this book! It made Christmas dinner a hit (the Brussels sprout recipe is divine!), and it is beautiful to look at and a pleasure to read, as are all of Nigella's books. Just mark that butter thing on the chocolate orange cake, and you'll be fine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A feast can be a daily extravagance after all 30. Mai 2008
Von - Kasia S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Nigella is my original muse, she single handedly got me back into the kitchen and cooking when the days of making cookies with my grandmother passed and I had to start doing it on my own. I have all of her books and honestly they are something one can actually cook from, my shelves are bending from the amount of cookbooks they house but only half are being used to make dinners and cakes, others I look at for inspiration and for pictures but Nigella's recipes are worth every penny one spends on a cookbook. I can't express my love and gratitude for this woman; she's intelligent, cheerful, honest a magnificent food writer who actually got me into writing as well, I even got my first KitchenAid mixer because she used her so much to make all of her delectable treats. So fear not, this and other books that she penned are not only gorgeous to look at but they can help anyone put something mouth watering on the table in no time. This one has pictures on almost every page and a short little bit of how this came to be or how she eats it before each recipe, probably my favorite part of the book.

This book is broken into occasions rather than seasons or ingredients - Thanksgiving & Christmas, New Year, Meatless Feasts, Valentine's Day, Easter, Passover, Breakfast, Kitchen Feasts, Kiddiefeast, Cut-out Cookies, Chocolate Cake Hall of Fame, A Georgian Feast, Eid, Ultimate Feasts, Hallowe'en, Rosh Hashanah, A Venetian Feast, Festival of Lights, Partytime, Midnight Feast, Wedding Feast, Funeral Feast ( somber I know but the food is actually very appropriate and having herself lose her mother, sister and first husband to cancer, Nigella is still living life and making the best of what she has) so no matter what one celebrates they can find something good in this super large volume. I have to admit that I use this daily and don't wait for special occasions.

Feast is probably her biggest ( thickest) book to date, and I made some good things from it. Let me tell you, the Pumpkin Cheesecake (on page 68 ) was my first cheesecake and no only was it ridiculously easy it turned out so good I was shocked I made it myself. There was a suggestion for Butterscotch sauce on the page to pour on top, I made it as well ( gotta love the pairing suggestions) and the combination was just divine. The sauce would also go well on something like an apple and macadamia nut crumble or anything thatis sweet.

Gingerbread muffins on page 91 were so warm and cozy I make them in cold weather to keep the chill of, the trouble is stopping at one. If you want your house to smell like a home, make this!

Roast Loin of pork with caraway, lemon and garlic - spicy fragrant, nothing ordinary about this simple to make dinner, makes great leftovers as the rub on top intensifies.

Chicken Pot Pie - I guarantee that after this one no one will be shopping for it in the frozen section of their supermarket, flaky dough, creamy hot center, lost of peas, ham and chicken in sauce, the only caution is not burning the tongue as it's hard not to gobble up.

There's even Muttar Paneer - an excellent Indian dish, makes me feel silly for ever thinking it was hard to make. Now I can control the ingredients and how much salt and fat goes into it, one can make a healthy lunch out of an exotic staple after all.

This book has everything, I don't know how this woman thinks it all up, but she makes these recipes and writes about them, she feeds them to her children and friends, real people are involved into bringing this book to life and it shows.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Magnificent Feast! 12. November 2004
Von crazyforgems - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nigella Lawson's "Feast" is a fabulous cookbook for most people, not just those about to prepare a Thanksgiving Dinner (though it is great for them too).

"Feast" celebrates Lawson's unique take on cooking and on life. She is a strong proponent of being comfortable in your own kitchen and at your own party. She eschews "perfectionism" (e.g., perfect flowers as centerpieces, exquisite appetizers) for good, home cooked food and comfort.

Lawson's definition of a feast has breadth and depth. This book includes sections on the traditional Holidays both secular and non-secular (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Eid-Muslim, Halloween). However, she also has suggestions for a "One Person Feast" or a "Venetian Feast" (which would make for a great dinner party)and other such events. MOST notably, she includes a section on a feast for a funeral with thoughtful suggestions on food to bring to the home of the bereaved.

Lawson's cookbooks can be read as books. In fact, I recommend that's how you begin with "Feast": read it from cover to cover. Her prose is witty, sly and friendly. You feel as if she's standing there in the kitchen with you.

Finally, the recipes are terrific. You'll find great soups that you can use anywhere (you may want to rename the Halloween "slime soup" but you can serve it in the summer), wonderful suggestions for roasts (e.g., roiled loin of pork cinghiale, Georgian chicken), side dishes (brussel sprouts with chestnuts and pancetta), and desserts ( a flourless chocolate orange cake) that can be used any day and any time of year, feast or no feast.

I cannot recommend this book enough to lovers of food and cooking everywhere.
