Relax and relish Nigella Lawson's delicious prose in her first, revelatory cookery book, published as a reading edition in Vintage Classics for the first time to celebrate twenty years of How to Eat. With an introduction by Jeanette Winterson.

When Nigella Lawson's first book, How to Eat, was published in 1998, two things were immediately clear: that this fresh and fiercely intelligent voice would revolutionise cookery writing, and that How to Eat was an instant classic of the genre.

Here was a versatile culinary bible, through which a generation discovered how to feel at home in the kitchen and found the confidence to experiment and adapt recipes to their own needs. This was the book to reach for when hastily organising a last-minute supper with friends, when planning a luxurious weekend lunch or contemplating a store-cupboard meal for one, or when trying to tempt a fussy toddler. This was a book about home cooking for busy lives.

The chief revelation was the writing. Rather than a set of intimidating instructions, Nigella's recipes provide inspiration. She has a gift for finding the right word to spark the reader's imagination, evoking the taste of the ingredients, the simple, sensual pleasures of the practical process, the deep reward of the finished dish.

Passionate, trenchant, convivial and wise, Nigella's prose demands to be savoured, and ensures that the joy and value of How to Eat will endure for decades to come.

Waterstones Says
Published to celebrate its 20th anniversary, this new, revised edition of Nigella’s classic is - as Nigel Slater says - a, ‘deeply practical yet joyously readable book’. A must for any cook’s library.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A masterclass in food writing - one glance shows how good she really is. How to eat, how to cook, how to write: I want two copies of this book, one to reference in the kitchen and one to read in bed' - Yotam Ottolenghi

'If I could only keep one cookbook, this would be it. How To Eat suits the way I cook. It is as if Nigella is sitting on a stool next to me in the kitchen as I'm cooking ... With every page you know she loves this stuff, and she wants you to love it too. It's a very, very special book for me. My own copy is falling apart.' - Nigel Slater

'What sets her apart from every other food writer is her empathy with working women and her realism' - The Times 

'A classic of the genre' - Irish Independent 

'Miss Lawson is the Thinking Person's Cook. She tells stories, she explains why things must be the way she says they must be... enlightenment and sensual pleasure' - Jeanette Winterson, The Times
