Real Food

Nigel Slater

Since its publication in 1998, which tied in with his first TV series, the innovative ‘Real Food’ has become the essential food book to have on the kitchen shelf. From Stickiest Ever Chicken Wings to Baked Goat’s Cheese and Pesto in Filo Pastry to the classic Bacon Butty, it covers Slater’s indispensable signature dishes – the ones you wouldn’t be without for love or money.

Based on Nigel Slater’s favourite foods, this classic helped to create a nation of food lovers. Nigel finds good things to make using all sorts of ingredients – mass produced sliced white to fine Italian loaves, standard corner shop confectionery to real chocolate made from cocoa solids. These irresistible recipes are still up-to-the-minute and this gorgeous reissue edition proves that ‘Real Food’ is still a must-have for any cookery enthusiast.
