A celebration of Italian food that is fresh, delicious, and unpretentious with 120 quick and easy recipes to elevate weeknight meals into no-fuss feasts.
 
Before she was a Food Network star and bestselling cookbook author, Nigella found her way to Florence, where she learned to cook like an Italian. With beautiful color photographs to inspire, Nigellissima has all the hallmarks of traditional Italian fare in its faithfulness to the freshest ingredients and simplest methods.

From pasta and meat to fish, vegetables, and, of course, dolci, there is something for every mood, season, and occasion: Curly-Edged Pasta with Lamb Ragu; Spaghettini with Lemon and Garlic Breadcrumbs; Meatzza, a meatball mixture pressed into a pan and finished with traditional Margherita ingredients; and Baby Eggplant with Oregano and Red Onion. Never an afterthought, Nigella’s low-maintenance “sweet things” include Instant Chocolate-Orange Mousse; light, doughnut-like Sambuca Kisses; and One-Step No-Churn Coffee Ice Cream, to name just a few.
 
Nigella believes that every ingredient must earn its place in a recipe, and she gives tips and techniques for making the most of your time in the kitchen. She guides you to stocking your pantry with a few supermarket ingredients and shows you how to make the most of them for spontaneous meals that taste boldly Italian.
 
Nigellissima is a love letter to the pleasures of cooking—and eating—the way Italians do. With a nod to the traditional but in Nigella’s trademark style, here are recipes that excite the imagination without stressing the cook.
The Domestic Goddess is back--and this time it's instant. Nigella and her style of cooking have earned a special place in our lives, symbolizing all that is best, most pleasurable, most hands-on, and least fussy about good food. But that doesn't mean she wants us to spend hours in the kitchen, slaving over a hot stove. Featuring fabulous fast foods, ingenious shortcuts, terrific time-saving ideas, effortless entertaining tips, and simple, scrumptious meals, Nigella Express is her solution to eating well when time is short. Here are mouthwatering meals, quick to prepare and easy to follow, that you can conjure up after a day in the office or on a busy weekend for family or unexpected guests. This is food you can make as you hit the kitchen running, with vital advice on how to keep your pantry stocked and your freezer and fridge stacked. When time is precious, you can't spend hours shopping, so you need to make life easier by being prepared. Not that these recipes are basic--though they are always simple--but it's important to make every ingredient earn its place, minimizing effort by maximizing taste. Here too is great food that can be prepared quickly but cooked slowly in the oven, leaving you time to have a bath, a drink, talk to friends, or help the children with their homework--minimum stress for maximum enjoyment . . . Nigella Express features a new generation of fast food--never basic, never dull, always doable, quick, and delicious. Featuring recipes seen on Food Network's Nigella Express series.

'Valentine has left no culinary stone unturned and has achieved what all cookbooks strive for, in that you want to go home and cook everything in the book!' - Fergus Henderson

Featured in Vegetarian Living, Valentine Warner takes us on a journey to home food heaven. The food on your table is at the heart of the house, and The Good Table shows that it is best when sourced and cooked with love and care.

In this book, Valentine pays homage to the slow cooking of cheaper cuts of meat, whilst encouraging us to enjoy less widely-used meat such as rabbit and venison. His ingredients are local, mostly inexpensive and easy to find, yet his dishes are often surprising, based on forgotten classics or hailing from distant countries such as Mexico and Morocco.

The food you put on your table is at the heart of the house, as a matter of survival and joy. Everything we eat sustains family, friends and self, and The Good Table shows that it is best when sourced and cooked with love and care.

Whether making comforting favourites such as Toad in the Hole or Paella, classic dishes such as Beef Suet Pudding or a Brandy Snap with Berries, or recipes from far-flung shores such as Lapland Fish Soup and a Spanish dish of Chorizo in Cider, Valentine's omnivorous curiosity and attention to detail set his recipes apart.

In this timely book, Valentine pays homage to the slow cooking of cheaper cuts of beef, pork and lamb, whilst encouraging us to enjoy less widely-used meat such as rabbit and venison. His ingredients are local, mostly inexpensive and easy to find, yet his dishes are often surprising, based on forgotten classics or hailing from distant countries such as Mexico and Morocco.

For Valentine, The Good Table starts with good shopping, and he encourages us to not be afraid of buying new ingredients, especially when they are affordable and plentiful. He seeks out sustainable fish, creates luxuries from everyday ingredients such as bread and eggs, and cooks fruit and vegetables when they are in season.
