Nigella Lawson’s Cook, Eat, Repeat: Ingredients, Recipes and Stories ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

For my first cookbook review in a while I decided to go with Nigella’s latest cookbook which was one of the new releases I was most excited about this year! As a longtime Nigella fan, this cookbook feels like a step away from her previous cookbooks. Retaining her usual witty prose to introduce recipes but this time blending it into a format of narrative essays about food placed alongside recipes, this book is a refreshing change from the cookbook norm.

Although I was a little confused by how best to navigate through the book when I opened it due to its vague sections like the brilliantly named ‘A loving Defence of Brown Food’, once I got past this it was a joy to read and use with such a versatile range of recipes!

I loved how personal and comforting each recipe was made to feel through Nigella’s insightful prose and there are so many dishes I can’t wait to make. In the swipe across is a picture of ‘pappardelle with cavolo nero and ‘nduja’ from the book that I made recently which tasted amazing although I did have to look up several of the ingredients and swap out the ‘nduja for harissa to make it vegetarian.

Cooking from scratch and following recipes more regularly is actually one of my New Year’s resolutions for this year and I already have my eye on the Black Forest brownies to make next!
