Nigella Lawson is universally loved everywhere, it seems. Whether it’s because she seems like a regular person that most of us can relate to, or because she cooks things that are appealing to everyone, her cookbooks are always popular. Cook, Eat, Repeat: Ingredients, Recipes, and Stories is another winner. Nigella doesn’t just present recipes, rather, she tells stories that give us insight into her unique European culture as well as recipes that are different from the norm, yet appealing to almost everyone.

Nigella’s stories are delightful; her books, especially this one, are fun to read, and even if you’re not cooking, this cookbook is suitable for cozying up and just reading for an hour or two. Everything about Nigella, it seems, is appealing, and her name on a cookbook insures a best seller. However, she has earned her popularity. Some favorite recipes included in this excellent cookbook include the very English Rhubarb and Custard Trifle, Spice-Studded Rice with Crispy Shallots, Garlic and Cashew Nuts (a new favorite), One-Pan Chicken with Apricot Harissa and Sweet Potatoes, and No-Knead Black Bread. The Burnt Onion and Eggplant Dip is perfect for serving company. Nigella covers appetizers, soups, main dishes, salads, and desserts, and they are not what we are used to serving everyday (although several will certainly become go-to recipes).

Another aspect of this excellent cookbook is that there are beautiful photographs of the dishes- every dish, which is as it should be. The recipes are easy-to-follow and most are easy enough for cooks at every level, from beginning cooks to those who are more experienced. This cookbook is fun and will be an excellent addition to every cookbook collection.
