Cookbook Review: Nigella Kitchen

This month, I’ve been cooking my way through the cookbook Nigella Kitchen. I’m a huge fan of Nigella Lawson and have been for many years. I adore her cooking show and was excited to dive in to this one.

If you’re not familiar with her, here she is looking as beautiful as always.

I don’t know if it was the decadence of the holidays or what, but I wasn’t really in the mood for this cookbook. So, after a month of working my way through this, I have to tell you it wasn’t one of my favorites. The way it’s organized made it a little difficult to navigate, and she uses a lot of ingredients that I have a hard time finding, like smoked chorizo.

That being said, I had a few favorites. One of which is an all time favorite of mine.

For January, I’m excited to announce I’ll be working through The Food Matters Cookbook by Mark Bittman. I’ve already made a few and think it will be a nice change after the gluttony of the last few days. If you’re not familiar with the cookbook, The Food Matters Project will give you a preview of the recipes and an idea of what it’s all about.
