1. Nigella Express?
I adore this book now. When it first came out I’ll admit, yes, I was disappointed. I thought Nigella’s flowing, profusive words would still be there, when in actuality what I got were step-by-step directions. But the truth be told, sometimes it’s easier when you’re in a hurry not having to painstakingly search through Nigella’s words for the actual method! Anyway, the introductions to each chapter kind of make up for it.
I want to send one of Nigella’s books to a food-loving cousin in Cyprus, I think it would be just too difficult if the directions were like ‘Feast’ or ‘How to Eat’.
I have, over time, come to love the recipes. I feel that Nigella had been reading up on ‘superfoods’ before she began this book – I love that there are healthy recipes in there, healthy AND quick – great! Not everything has tons of butter and gallons of cream!Fantastic!
Sooooo, I take it all back, I LOVE ‘Express’!
