Nigella Lawson, food enthusiast, television personality, and journalist, has written ten bestselling cook books including the classics How to Eat, Feast, and How To Be A Domestic Goddess—the book that inspired a whole new generation of bakers. These books, her host role on ABC-TV’s The Taste, along with her Quick Collection apps, and her successful television series on Food Network, E! Entertainment Television, Style, and the BBC, have made her a household name around the world. Visit her website

Nigella Lawson has long been a champion of the home cook, creating recipes that are approachable and achievable. Her new book, At My Table: A Celebration of Home Cooking  includes over a hundred new recipes that she has shared with friends and family at her table, and are offered here for her readers to enjoy.

“This book, like all the books I’ve written and all the cookery books I’ve read, is not just a manual, but a collection of stories and a container of memories.” — Nigella Lawson

It is abundant with recipes that are warming, comforting, and inspirational, from new riffs on classic favorites – Chicken Fricassee; Maple Roast Plums – to adventures in a host of new dishes and ingredients: Eggplant Fatteh; White Miso Hummus; and Garlicky Roast Potatoes with Oregano and Feta.  The recipes in At My Table include anecdotes and advice from Nigella that are as entertaining as they are nourishing. Here are dishes to inspire all cooks and eaters, from Hake with Bacon, Peas and Cider to Apple Pork Chops with Sauerkraut Slaw; Rump Steaks with Anchovy Cream Sauce to a Chicken and Pea Traybake; plus a host of colorful vegetable dishes, such as Eastern Mediterranean Chopped Salad, and Carrots and Fennel with Harissa.

At My Table also includes cakes and desserts, with a number of recipes set to become repertoire regulars: Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Marmalade and Crème Fraîche; Emergency Brownies; White Chocolate Cheesecake; and a beautiful Rose and Pepper Pavlova being just a few contenders.
