At My Table
At My Table: A Celebration of Home Cooking | Nigella Lawson
11 posts | 1 read | 3 to read
Nigella Lawson is a champion of the home cook and her new book celebrates the food she loves to cook for friends and family. The recipes are warming, comforting, and inspirational, from new riffs on classic dishes including Chicken Fricasse and Sticky Toffee Pudding to adventures in a host of new dishes and ingredients, from Aubergine Fatteh to White Miso Hummus. AT MY TABLE includes dishes to inspire all cooks and eaters, from Hake with Bacon, Peas and Cider to Indian-Spiced Chicken and Potato Traybake and Chilli Mint Lamb Cutlets; plus a host of colourful vegetable dishes, like Eastern Mediterranean Chopped Salad and Carrots and Fennel with Harissa. No Nigella cookbook would be complete without sweet treats, and AT MY TABLE is no exception, with Emergency Brownies, White Chocolate Cheesecake and a Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Marmalade and Crme Frache set to become family favourites. As Nigella writes, happiness is best shared and the food in this book will be served and savoured at your own kitchen table just as it is at hers.

I borrowed this book from the library today already knowing this would be the first recipe I would look at. She made it on masterchef a couple of months ago.

Just took it out of the oven and it smells good!

Simona Any awkward moments at signing? 2y
Chocamanda @Simona I think the most awkward moment was when I made my exit. I think I could have stayed to talk to her longer but I was too nervous 🙈 2y

If you live in the SF Bay Area, head to Draeger's in San Mateo tomorrow at 11:00 for a book signing with Nigella Lawson. I'm excited to say that I'll be going. The thing is, I'm terrible at meeting famous people or people I admire professionally. Any tips for not looking like a total weirdo? 🤓

Simona I don‘t have any tips, but I wish you to have a very good time. Enjoy 😘 2y
Chocamanda @Simona thank you! I hope I can get through it and not panic 😂 2y
