“In a way, to be afraid of fat is to be afraid of food," Lawson told Business Week in 2002. "And to be afraid of food is to be afraid of life. I think good butter, good milk, and good eggs are things we should be grateful for in life. I sort of feel: Everything in moderation and occasional excess."

by Nigella Lawson
In the introduction to this volume focusing on baking and comfort foods, Lawson explains that, when exploring the culinary arts, "we don't want to feel stressed and over-stretched, but like a domestic goddess, trailing nutmeggy fumes of baking pie in our languorous wake."
