• "Nigella Lawson is one of the best and most influential of British food writers ... The staple cookbook for a whole generation"

    Ruth Rogers, co-author of The River Café Cookbook
  • "My kitchen bible to this day... You made me realise that every meal is a celebration. You didn’t teach me how to cook. You taught me how to eat."

    Nigel Slater, Observer
  • "How to eat, how to cook, how to write: I want two copies of this book, one to reference in the kitchen and one to read in bed."

    Yotam Ottolenghi
  • "A classic of the genre: a book that easily gathers both experiences and novice cooks under its wing, with something to teach them all, and a witty confiding manner as it does so. Frankly, no kitchen is complete without."

    The Irish Independent
  • "How to Eat may just be the best cookery book ever"

    Daily Telegraph
