This ebook is best viewed on a tablet device.

Includes over 250 recipes, many from his BBC TV series Dish of the Day, Simple Suppers and Simple Cooking.

From Nigel Slater, presenter of Dish of the Day and one of our best-loved food writers, a beautiful and inspiring companion volume to his bestselling Kitchen Diaries.

‘For years now I have kept notebooks, with scribbled shopping lists and early drafts of recipes in them. These notes form the basis of this second volume of The Kitchen Diaries. More than a diary, this is a collection of small kitchen celebrations, be it a casual, beer-fuelled supper of warm flatbreads with pieces of grilled lamb scattered with toasted pine kernels and blood-red pomegranate seeds or a quiet moment contemplating a bowl of soup and a loaf of bread.’

‘No one writes more temptingly about food' Independent

Graeme Flett ,

Half a book

From the available info there appears to be over 500 pages in this book however on downloading I only have access to 46 pages. I have deleted and re downloaded it but this doesn't seem to have fixed the problem. For £14.99 I would appreciate the whole book that I paid for!!

Tycinki ,

Book has not downloaded!

I too have received only 51 pages of a book that contains over 500 pages. No apparent way to complain (not that works anyway). £15 wasted. I want the book or my money back!!

Ally Applebum ,

Most of book missing!

I only have 70 odd pages of a 500 page book, nothing seems to be working to fix this problem. Have spent £15 on a cookbook with approx 5 recipes. Not good.
