Wanna have some fun? Read a big ol' cookbook on transit. Everyone on the train will want to talk to you about it. That said, I'm glad I got this one out from the library as opposed to buying it. Not much here that tweaked my cooking interest.

This is a great cookbook, that’s bursting with Nigella’s personality. The recipes are versatile and approachable, while her writing makes you feel as if you are part of the family.

I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+. All opinions are my own. Cook, Eat, Repeat by Nigella Lawson is one of the things that kept me sane during the one-year anniversary of being stuck at home because of the pandemic with no clear end in sight. It’s very much a comfort read, a paean to food that brings joy and though I will never in this lifetime want to eat anchovies, reading Ms. Lawson's praise of them brought comfort in a time when little else did. Many of the recipes contain ingredients that are difficult to source during the lockdown, and so the recipes that I did try and enjoy were the simpler ones, the no-knead bread, the sandwich bread, fish stick sandwiches and pink pickled onions. I considered the MINE-ALL-MINE cookies but am pretty sure that there is a typo in the recipe as I can’t imagine how two cookies could contain eight teaspoons each of baking powder, baking soda and fine sea salt. With lovely essays, beautiful photos and many recipes sure to delight, I think this is definitely a book I will be purchasing for my keeper shelf. #CookEatRepeat #NigellaLawson #comfortfood #recipebook #harpercollinscanada #HCC #mybookpledge #bookstagram #bookstagramer #eccobooks… (more)
