"Cooking is not about just joining the dots, following one recipe slavishly and then moving on to the next," says British food writer Nigella Lawson. "It's about developing an understanding of food, a sense of assurance in the kitchen, about the simple desire to make yourself something to eat." Lawson is not a chef, but "an eater." She writes as if she's conversing with you while beating eggs or mincing garlic in your kitchen. She explains how to make the basics, such as roast chicken, soup stock, various sauces, cake, and ice cream. She teaches you to cook more esoteric dishes, such as grouse, white truffles (mushrooms, not chocolate), and "ham in Coca-Cola." She gives advice for entertaining over the holidays, quick cooking ("the real way to make life easier for yourself: cooking in advance"), cooking for yourself ("you don't have to belong to the drearily narcissistic learn-to-love-yourself school of thought to grasp that it might be a good thing to consider yourself worth cooking for"), and weekend lunches for six to eight people. Don't expect any concessions to health recommendations in the recipes here--Lawson makes liberal and unapologetic use of egg yolks, cream, and butter. There are plenty of recipes, but the best parts of How to Eat are the well-crafted tidbits of wisdom, such as the following:

  • "Cook in advance and, if the worse comes to the worst, you can ditch it. No one but you will know that it tasted disgusting, or failed to set, or curdled or whatever."

  • On the proper English trifle: "When I say proper I mean proper: lots of sponge, lots of jam, lots of custard and lots of cream. This is not a timid construction ... you don't want to end up with a trifle so upmarket it's inappropriately, posturingly elegant. A degree of vulgarity is requisite."

  • "Too many people cook only when they're giving a dinner party. And it's very hard to go from zero to a hundred miles an hour. How can you learn to feel at ease around food, relaxed about cooking, if every time you go into the kitchen it's to cook at competition level?"

--Joan Price

Pressestimmen

"How to Eat was in many ways a breakthrough. With the confident air of Elizabeth David, she laid out what seemed every view possible on how she eats, including when she is dieting and when she is eating alone, and complimented it with hundreds of appealing and accessible recipes.... Some of her best recipes...are written as suggestions within the text. How to Eat is full of them." (The New York Times, January 9, 2002)

Von Ein Kunde am 3. März 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this book for its low-fat section (or "Temple Food", as the author calls it) and its warm, conversational tone. I've ended up cooking from all parts of it, whether I'm whipping together something after work for myself or a posh "impressing my friends" meal for six on a Saturday night. Although I've been a life-long fan of 'good food', this is the best book I've used for taking 'real life' - whether it's kids, work, diet or special occasions - into consideration. It's like cooking with a friend in the kitchen, and for a Londoner like me (where kitchens are too small to accomodate more than one person) that's a fine recommendation!

"5-pound half bone-in ham"
"4 1/2 cups hard or sweet cider"
"cut into 2 1/2-inch lengths"
"2 ounces dried red chillies"
"1/2 can (14.5 ounces) plum tomatoes"
"preheat the oven to 450°F"
"1 tablespoon all-purpose flour"

If it wasn't for Nigella I wouldn't even begin to read a "Macaroni and Cheese" recipe. By reading it I found that she adds "Parmesan, mixed in with the bread crumbs to be sprinkled on top before going under the broiler". Still I would not mind seeing what this looks like.

And who would not want to see "Poires Belles Hélenè" to get an idea what Bartlett pears look like and to be inspired on how "to serve, arrange pears cut-side down on a big flat plate and pour some syrup over...Offer with the ice cream, sauce, and violets, if using, served separately; allow diners to help themelves."?!

The book contains an Editor's Note which says:
"The great success of HOW TO EAT in its own land isn't hard to fathom. Rooted firmly in the pleasures of home cooking... In "translating" HOW TO EAT for American cooks, I've tried, whenever possible, to remain faithful to the book's spirit of spontaneity. The author's intention was to make the recipes easy to follow and reliable - they are - and also to allow cooks the freedom needed to gain pleasure and confidence in the kitchen. Thus, bossing and too much quantifying have been avoided; dish yields, for example, are given where necessary, but left otherwise to the judgment of the cook.

The book is not like a classical cookbook devided into sections like vegetables, meat, puddings, but into "themes": Sunday lunch, breakfasts, dinner etc., even baby food. Nigella Lawson writes very entertaining and the recipes are easy to follow. The good thing about the themes is that you are sure the different dishes go well with each other and she always suggests alternatives, too, in case you do not like the sound of one of the dishes. A great cook book!
