    I’m a Nigella fan but after watching her television series I was not too sure if I wanted the book as I hadn’t been keen on the series. Your review has assured me that this is definitely a must have for my kitchen – can’t wait to get cooking 🙂

    I must admit that I haven’t seen any of this series, Lucy, but I am loving the book. Fancy a Choc Chip Bread Pudding?!

    “Kitchen” is definately top of my cook book list at the moment! Devils Food cake went down very well at work recently with a bit of tweaking to the icing for the sweeter tooth. The turkey meatballs, apple and cinnamon muffins, chocolate chip cookies and more …. Have gone down well at home! Not too sure about the tv series though – cooking “sluts spagetti” in a silk dressing gown…!

    @Vickscakes Le Creuset pots and pans, if you can afford them, are the business. I’ve an old one of my mother’s that I borrowed for a few weeks – about seven years ago – and I have to say getting married was a very good excuse to get a few more. It’s not only LeC that I’m a fan of – I also have a Chasseur casserole that gets a regular work out, as well as a pair of cheap-ish but very heavy frying pans that are used for everything.

    @Edel Sounds like you’re cooking your way through it. Still haven’t seen the programme although I think that the silk dressing gowns are there more to appeal to the other half of the viewers! Will have to swap favourite recipes over Christmas.
