British cook Nigel Slater often states that he's not a chef, he's a cook. I would go further and say that he is a cook's cook. He somehow manages to be charming yet authoritative, comforting yet elegant. His approach is casual but he gets the job done. He is well-known and beloved in England where he recently topped Jamie Oliver and Delia Smith as Britain's favorite celebrity chef (er, cook) and his star continues to rise as more and more people outside of the U.K. discover his delicious recipes and beautiful cookbooks.
We're very happy to feature these short, charming essentials from one of our favorite cooks!
