Chef and food writer
This might not be the most obvious Nigella choice to go for, but for me it embodies all that is important about food. Every occasion of any importance is celebrated with food, be it a simple supper for two or a party or festival for the masses. This is Nigella’s spin on how we celebrate life. The writing is wonderful and the essence of this book perfectly sums up my own philosophy on the joy of cooking to share, connect and celebrate.

The price of the book is worth it for the Georgian Feast alone. Roast chicken stuffed with sour cherries and rice, cheese flatbread and green beans is now a dinner party staple in my house.

Always a brilliant source of inspiration when I'm feeding a crowd, especially at Christmas time. I love the tone of Nigella's books; personal, relaxed intimate, never intimidating.
She writes so evocatively about food rituals and their importance in the lives of all humans. And most recipes are demystified.
