Probably my second favourite Nigella Lawson cookbook (after [b:How to Be a Domestic Goddess: Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking|39542|How to Be a Domestic Goddess Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking|Nigella Lawson|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1169298594s/39542.jpg|39249]. There's a recipe here for almost every occasion. Some of the recipes in this book I've used so often that I know them off by heart and could probably do them in my sleep. (Chocolate Honey Cake, I'm talking about you!) ( )

I am so fond of this book. I have cooked only a few recipies from it thus far (more to come, certainly) which have been lovely.

More than that though I love it's tone and unusual organization. There is (thank heaven) an index for those seraching for a particular thing. The book is organized around the occasions for Feasts from the obvious - Christmas and birthdays - to the less obvious but equally important - funerals and kitchen dinners with friends.

This one has spent time both in my kitchen and on my bedside table and cookbooks which are welcome in both places are my favourites. ( )
