How to be a Domestic Goddess


The classic book that launched a thousand cupcakes.

'This is for those days or evenings when you want to usher a little something out of the kitchen that makes you thrill at the sheer pleasure you’ve conjured up.'

The classic baking bible by Nigella Lawson (‘Queen of the Kitchen’ – Observer Food Monthly). This is the book that helped the world rediscover the joys of baking and kick-started the cupcake revolution, from cake shops around the country to The Great British Bake Off.

How To Be a Domestic Goddess is not about being a goddess, but about feeling like one. Here is the book that feeds our fantasies, understands our anxieties and puts cakes, pies, pastries, preserves, puddings, bread and biscuits back into our own kitchens.

With luscious photography, easy recipes, witty food writing and a beautiful hardback design, this is a book you will treasure for many years as well as a delicious gift for friends and family.

How to Eat


The classic cookbook that will help you rediscover the joys of eating well.

'Cooking is not just about joining the dots, following one recipe slavishly and then moving on to the next. In cooking, as in writing, you must please yourself to please others.'

Hailed by chefs, reviewers, cookery writers and millions of home cooks worldwide as one of the best cookery books ever written, How To Eat is more than just an imaginative collection of over 350 delicious, simple recipes. Combining Nigella’s down-to-earth, practical cookery advice with a passion for food and a friendly, chatty style, you will need two copies of this glorious classic: one for the kitchen, one for the bedside table.

This is Nigel Slater’s all-time favourite cookbook: “If I could only keep one cookbook, this would be it. How To Eat suits the way I cook. It is as if Nigella is sitting on a stool next to me in the kitchen as I’m cooking ... With every page you know she loves this stuff, and she wants you to love it too. It’s a very, very special book for me. My own copy is falling apart.”

With gloriously witty food writing, easy recipes, basic cooking tips and a beautiful hardback design, this is a book you will treasure for many years as well as a delicious gift for friends and family.
