I was looking for a cookbook that was bigger on the “book” part than the “cook” part. Enjoyed reading Nigel Slater’s life of a year in the kitchen, the garden, the food purveyors. This is a book for someone looking for something a little more literary as opposed to a collection of recipes with instructions. FYI, there are recipes included but the instructions aren’t exacting and nor should they be. I think this would appeal to anyone who is a more intuitive cook.
