About the Author

Nigel Slater is the author of a collection of bestselling books, including the classics Real Fast Food, Appetite, and the critically acclaimed The Kitchen Diaries. He has written a much-loved column for The Observer (London) for eighteen years and is the presenter of the award-winning BBC series Simple Suppers. His memoir, Toast: The Story of a Boy's Hunger, has won six major awards, including British Biography of the Year, and has been adapted into a BBC film.


"Though perfectly explicit, Slater's recipes read like prose, which means that you'll want to curl up in your favorite chair and read through each one slowly until you just can't take it any longer and have to get up to make your own za'atar-spiked chicken cutlets or a bowl of orecchiette tossed with basil and zucchini."--Eater

"His work proves that simple cooking with good ingredients will often result in a sumptuous meal if approached thoughtfully, and in A Cook's Book, you'll find plenty of relaxed, intentionally crafted meals to return to over and over again."--Bon Appetit

"With A Cook's Book, Slater's 16th, he solidifies his status as a home-cook icon. The recipes are simple and confident, the ingredient lists radical in their hewing to what's on hand in today's pantry . . ."--AirMail
