"I am neither a chef nor a performer: this is the food I cook, the food I eat." -- Nigella Lawson

Nigella Bites accompanies a forthcoming 10-part television series -- a culinary and visual feast of recipes from the best and most glamorous young home-cook in Britain and a great cookery writer.

Nigella Lawson's passion for food and her refreshingly down-to-earth practicality breathe life into this beautiful cookbook, illustrated with full-colour photographs and recipes from her forthcoming television series. Like the series, Nigella Bites is a celebration of food, perfect for modern cooks, with recipes to suit many tastes, timetables and moods, and all characteristic of Nigella's ethos: uncomplicated, original, fresh, and perfect for the way we live today. They're easy to produce after a busy day at the office, fun to linger over at weekends or to make with the kids, delectable to read about, dreamy to look at and delicious to eat.

In 10 chapters, each based on a different theme and episode of the television series -- including All-Day Breakfasts, TV Dinners, Party Girl food, Rainy Day fare, Trashy food, Slow-Cook Weekends and Templefood -- Nigella Lawson gives us her marvellous recipes, along with her thoughts on modern life and cooking, offering encouragement and wise advice. Nigella wants her readers to enjoy the pleasures of eating and cooking. With her, how could anyone resist?
