Forever Summer by Nigella Lawson

The new cookbook by the star of Nigella Bites on Style Network--who has her own New York Times Dining section column--featuring summer recipes for the whole year-round.

How to Be a Domestic Goddess was a wonderful book about baking, and Nigella Bites featured even more enticing recipes. Now in Forever Summer, Nigella Lawson concocts warm-weather recipes that prolong that lazy summer feeling throughout the entire year. Fresh, innovative, versatile and delicious, Nigella combines her breezy style with delicious food to make an irresistable cookbook. Including succulent Spanish and Italian dishes, Mediterranean roasted vegetables and barbecued sea bass, Moroccan roast lamb and Mauritian prawn curry, to the traditional strawberries-and-cream British desserts, it's all mouthwatering.

Other recipes include:

  • Vanilla Shortbread
  • Srawberry Meringue Layer Cake
  • Chicken Salad with Spinach
  • Black and Blue Beef
  • Rack of Lamb with Mint Salsa
  • Flatbread Pizzas
  • Happiness Soup

This is the best Nigella has ever done. It focuses on intuition and bold flavors, rather than on ceremony and on kitsch. If you improvise with the flavors instead of trying madly to exact her recipes, you will be rewarded not only with a great meal, but also with having learned something; if you obsess about quantities and don't understand flavor combinations, buy some other book.

I have to say, this is quickly becoming one of my favorite cookbooks. I love the super-simple stuffed shells with cheese, and I am anxiously awaiting summer so I can try some of her suggestions for grilled meats. In general, these recipes are very simple, and I suppose some might not like that 'common sense' aspect. She expresses the love so many of us have for a simple 3 or 4 ingredient pasta dish, though, and makes you crave it all over again. It is full of Lawson's descriptive and sensual prose...I actually read it like a book! I think it's worthwhile if only for those great descriptions, but if that doesn't turn you on you might take the opinion that many of her recipes aren't 'new' enough. If you're new to Nigella's style, I think you will find this a delightful intro to her world!

I had this book as a present and I haven't stopped using it. Some of the recipes I have made over and over again for different people and each time have received compliments. What I like most is that apart from just using it the way Nigella suggests, you can also be inventive and add a bit of your touches to it. Fantastic!

This was a bit of a disappointment. Was it because the other two were so, so good? When I first started watching her I thought, wish I could throw a meal together like that. (I think the same thing about Jamie Oliver, though he's actually a chef, unlike Nigella.) After her first two books I could. But this was a stretch like they were strugling to make a point.

I have all but one of Nigella's cookbooks and this is one of my favorites. Having said that I must all say that each book has recipes that utterly fail and ones that are unbelievably great. In Forever Summer the Strawberry Meringue Layercake is good in theory, but the sponge cake part ends up very dry and the entire thing looks like a dessert hamburger. People were not impressed. The Coconut Slab, overly sugared and dry. However, her Chocolate Raspberry Pav was fabulous. And I couldn't go wrong with any of the pasta dishes, they were wonderful. Of course, the photos are gorgeous and the book itself is very fun to read through, especially when you are missing summer in the dead of winter. But, it s frustrating when the photos are gorgeous but the end results half the time isn't nearly as good as it looks. I'm happy there were less photos of her in this book eating and posing for the camera. That gets a little tiring. Overall, I'd recommend it if you can pick it up for less used
