About this deal

Cooking - for me at least – is about making yourself something to eat and sharing food with others but is also – whisper it - about the quiet moments of joy to be had along the way. Watching the progress of dinner as you stir onions in a pan, at first crisp, white and pungent – you may have shed a tear - then slowly becoming translucent gold, darkening to bronze, all the time becoming softer, sweeter.

I think it’s his best one, and I say that because every single recipe is something you’d make tonight, for supper, with no fuss or stress .The RA is a unique institution, an independent charity with a mission to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists, where art is made, exhibited and debated. Sharing food with those at your table - passing round a bowl of late autumn raspberries or a slice of sugar-encrusted blackberry and apple pie – is heart-warming enough, but a recipe posted in a newspaper, ephemerally on social media or in more lasting form in the pages of a book, has the chance to be shared even more widely. The independent-minded quarterly magazine that combines good looks, good writing and a personal approach. But I also enjoy those that are more than just cold instructions, those that are more than simply ‘do this, do that. Each one a letter to a friend, a story of something I have made for dinner, the tale of how it came to be on my table.

And that is where a good recipe comes in and partly the point of what I do, to guide a new cook towards a pleasing dinner, and for those who have been cooking for years, to share a recipe that they may not know. These are the favourite recipes Nigel Slater cooks at home every day; the heart and soul of his cooking.Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).

Chapters include: a slice of tart, a chicken in the pot, everyday greens, the solace of soup and the ritual of tea.The Hogarth Press where I’m working, is in the heart of the literary world, with authors coming in all the time. A longtime food columnist in the UK and the author of fifteen previous books, he cooks food which is sometimes unmistakably British—Cumberland sausage with cheddar roasted-potato mash; smoked haddock and mussel pie—and a page or two later he’s suggesting food which is resolutely, nimbly not of any single tradition: broccoli with pumpkin seeds and bread crumbs; ground lamb with lime and cilantro. A salad tossed together with broad beans, salted ricotta and the first white-tipped radishes of spring; a roast chicken, its crisp skin served with a fat jug of its roasting juices on an autumn day or a gloriously messy platter of grilled aubergines, hummus and torn flatbread shared with the best of friends. Receiving no public funding, the RA depends on the continuing generosity of our supporters and Friends.
