Feastis written to stand alongside Nigella's classic and best loved book,How to Eat. Comprehensive and informed, this stunning new book will be equally at home in the kitchen or on the bedside table. A feast for both the eyes and the senses, written with Nigella Lawson's characteristic flair and passion,Feast: Food that Celebrates Lifeis a major book in the style of her classicHow to Eat, applying Nigella's "Pleasures and Principles of Good Food" to the celebrations and special occasions of life. Essentially about families and food, about public holidays and private passions, about how to celebrate the big occasions and the small everyday pleasures -- those times when food is more than just fuel --Feasttakes us through Christmas, Thanksgiving and birthdays, to Passover and a special Sardinian Easter; from that first breakfast together to a meal fit for the in-laws; from seasonal banquets of strawberries or chestnuts to the ultimate chocolate cake; from food for cheering up the "Unhappy Hour" to funeral baked-meats; from a Georgian feast to a love-fest; from Nigella's all-time favourite dish to a final New Year fast. Evocative, gorgeous, refreshingly uncomplicated and full of ideas,Feastproclaims Nigella's love of life and great food with which to celebrate it. Packed with over 200 recipes from all over the world -- and from near home -- with helpful menus for whole meals, and more than 120 colour photographs,Feastis destined to become a classic.
