I could not wait to buy and read this book, and I was not disappointed. I have already made a few recipes and they turned out wonderfully. I Love they way she talks about food, and just really appreciates food. She did a fabulous job with this book.

This is, without doubt, one of the best cookbooks I've ever used. It's like cooking with a friend in the kitchen: one who knows the best way to produce the most voluptous, finger-licking flavours with a minimum of fuss. It's not a super-lowfat book, but's got a great section on eating to lose weight (probably one of the most honest and endearing examinations of the subject ever) as well as recipes for cooking for two, in advance, for children and for having loads of friends over. And on top of everything, it's so fun to read I sometimes do it in my spare time. Brilliant - when's the next one, Nigella?

I just bought HOW TO EAT after being a big fan of the show. I made the lamb shoulder (425 degrees for 30mins/lb???) - After about 20 mins my house was filled with smoke and I ruined the meat. Browsing the other recipes, I realized most of the oven temps seem really high - 400 degrees, for long periods of time. My advice, use common sense when cooking and don't go by the temps given here.
