For those of you who don't know- I love Nigel Slater. For those who do know this small fact, I can sense your smiles and chuckles, and nodding heads;) For those of you who don't know who he is, he is a food writer and cook from Britain. His approach to cooking and writing is romantic, whimsical, down to earth, organic, seasonal, simple and just delicious. I want to carry him around in my pocket all day.
Today I purchased his newest book titled "Tender-volume1", it is about his small garden in his backyard over in London, and the vegetables he has been growing and making from it. I was glad I was sitting down when I started reading it today, as I simply went weak in the knees from his sentences. (this photo by Sarah Redimerio)
At this stage I can only dream of being as wonderful as he is as a food writer- but I am working on it:) http://www.nigelslater.com/tender.asp
