About Nigel Slater
Nigel Slater is a cook who writes. He has been the food columnist for The Observer for 15 years. Author of seven cookery books, an autobiography and presenter of the BBC television series A Taste of my Life, his latest book is Eating for England, a personal portrait of the British at table.
Nigel is not a chef. His cooking is understated, straightforward stuff that is easy to accomplish, without a trace of what he affectionately calls ‘cheffery’. He is not fond of fussy cooking and prefers simple suppers made with care and thought. He believes that making something good to eat for yourself or for others can lift the spirits in the way little else can.
