Ever wonder what the original domestic goddess cooks at home? Nigella Lawson’s At My Table answers that question in the most delicious ways. It’s no wonder so many of the recipes Nigella cooks at home can be categorized as comfort food (think: roasted meats, curries, and mashed potatoes); everything about her is comforting: her voice, her gentle direction, her encouragement of the home cook, “nothing can do the job of your palate. . .you need to taste, taste, taste, and taste again.” We can all do that. In fact, spend some time with Nigella’s new cookbook, and taste is all you’ll want to do.

Weeknights, weekends. . .if you love to cook your way through books, this is one that compels you to the stove—even during the dog days of summer.
