Editor and writer
Slater’s gentle contemplation, his seeming vulnerability and lack of urgency means his words act as useful counterpoint to the barrage of "look at this!!" we are subjected to. His recipes and words are mined and committed to the page like rare jewels. What tipped this as my choice was slater's recipe for Pork Ribs Ragu with Pappardelle. I loved this so much I would pay the cover price for the recipe alone.
