With Forever Summer, Nigella takes eating to where the weather is fine and the living is easy. Dreary winter? Never mind, it’s sensuous summer all year long with Nigella Lawson in this food network companion cookbook that draws on the best cuisines from all over the world. Even when it’s cold outside, Nigella’s recipes and charm will summon up some warmth on our plate. This is cooking and eating at a relaxed and easy pace.
The simply prepared summer dishes in Forever Summer take their inspiration from such sunny climes as Italy, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. Her mix of herbs and spices are a refreshing inspiration, Flatbread Pizzas made with za’atar, a mixture of thyme, sumac and sesame, Linguine with Chilli, Crab and Watercress. Her twists on the traditional are like a breath of fresh air, Watermelon Feta and Black Olive Salad, and Greek Salad with crunchy fennel replacing humdrum cucumber.
Forever Summer is in the same winning format and style as her other television companion books, just more pics of Nigella having fun in the summertime, having it all. So, take Nigella’s advice, grab hold of this book and “conjure up the sun, some light, a lazy feeling of having all the wide-skied time in the world to sit back and eat warmly with friends.”
“Nigella Lawson seems to have a knack of thinking creatively about food which allows her to turn a recipe over in her hands, as it were, give it a tweak and turn it into something livelier and fresher than it was before… Above all, she communicates, through dozens and dozens of recipes, the ideals of freshness, simplicity, spontaneity and immediacy, a combination it’s hard to resist.”—Amazon.co.uk
