Beschreibung des Verlags

'What you have in your hands is a ragbag collection of the happiest of times, the small moments of joy that have been the seasoning in this cook’s stew. A little box of curiosities to dip into, to comfort and to distract, albeit briefly, from more complicated times'

A personal and lyrical collection of small, blissful moments encountered in the kitchen, garden and travels around the world. From cardamom buns igniting memories of Gothenburg at Christmastime to fox cubs trampolining on freshly sheared hedges, Nigel Slater recounts quiet and bold memories with an equal sense of wonder and appreciation.

A Thousand Feasts is narrative journey into gardening, cooking and travel from Britain's most loved food writer, Nigel Slater.
