Nigella Collection: a vibrant new look for Nigella’s classic cookery books; previously published as KITCHEN.
‘A little pottering in the kitchen gives me that feeling I find so crucial, of being in a fixed, familiar place in a whirling world. So here it is, from my kitchen to yours: cosy, cocooning food.’
The classic family recipe book by Nigella Lawson. Kitchen is packed with feel-good food for cooks and eaters that solves all your everyday cooking quandaries, from what to cook for Sunday lunch or how to give children food they’ll eat, to how to rustle up an impromptu dinner party menu or a gluten-free cake. As well as her mouthwatering recipes, Nigella rounds up her kitchen must-haves: essential kitchen equipment and standby ingredients.
With luscious photography, easy family recipes, indulgent food writing and a beautiful hardback design, this is a book you will treasure for many years as well as a delicious gift for friends and family.

Another blockbuster with a wide range of hearty and wholesome family recipes... Nice touches are notes on preparing ahead, freezing and in some cases advice on how to turn leftovers into salads and soups
Although her fabulous recipes have helped to turn Nigella Lawson into one of this country’s most beloved cooks, it’s undoubtedly her undisguised love of food and eating has warmed her to our hearts.
The recipes are big on flavour but straightforward…this will become much splattered with daily use. I cannot think of anyone who wouldn’t welcome a copy.
The recipes are reassuringly solid, enticing and, crucially, just that bit less excessive. Perfect.
Photographs in cookery books used to be about secret tricks. Today, they inspire rather than intimidate. Here food stylists tell Penguin.co.uk how their profession learnt to relax – thanks to Instagram, Jamie Oliver and the humble roasting tin.
