Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, the cookbook in which Nigella Lawson shows us how to release the domestic goddess inside each of us

"The trouble with much modern cooking is not that the food it produces isnt good, but that the mood it induces in the cook is one of skin-of-the-teeth efficiency, all briskness and little pleasure. Sometimes that's the best we can manage, but at other times we dont want to feel like a postmodern, postfeminist, overstretched woman but, rather, like a domestic goddess, trailing nutmeggy fumes of baking pie in our languorous wake . . ."

How to Be a Domestic Goddess, filled with more than 220 lavishly illustrated recipes, makes cooking and baking as luxurious as it should be, with recipes for cakes, pies, pastries, and breads, and feeds our fantasies of making sumptuous treats at home.

Synopsis:

Nigella Lawson's How to Be a Domestic Goddess is about not only baking, but the enjoyment of being in the kitchen, taking sensuous pleasure in the entire process, and relishing the outcome. Nigella's deliciously reassuring and mouthwatering cookbook demonstrates that it's not terribly difficult to bake a batch of muffins or a layer cake, but the appreciation and satisfaction they bring are disproportionately high. At last, a book that understands our anxieties, feeds our fantasies, and puts cakes, pies, pastries, breads, and biscuits back into our own kitchens.

This is a wonderful cookbook, written by a cook who doesn't mess around with substitute "low fat low carb" ingredients. This is real food, and done incredibly well. The recipes I have tried thus far have gotten rave reviews (and have been gobbled up almost instantly,) and I do believe that the Snickerdoodle recipe in this book is the world's most perfect cookie recipe. Hands down.
