I cannot go any further without mentioning my favourite biscuit of all time, now sadly, tragically, extinct. The oaty, crumbly, demerara notes of the long-forgotten Abbey Crunch will remain forever on my lips. I loved the biscuit as much as anything I have ever eaten, and often, in moments of solitude, I still think about its warm, buttery, sugary self.More Nigel Slater [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Food is, for me, for everybody, a very sexual thing and I think I realised that quite early on.

Maybe that goes back to trying to please my dad, I don't know. It's like parenting in a way I suppose.More Nigel Slater [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

There is too much talk of cooking being an art or a science – we are only making ourselves something to eat.More Nigel Slater [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
British food is a celebration of comfort eating. Our traditional savoury recipes are all about warmth and sustenance, our puddings a roll call of sweet jollity, our cakes are deep and cosy. We appear to be a nation in need of a big, warm hug.More Nigel Slater [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
