As summer approaches it immediately makes me think of one of my favorite culinary divas from across the pond, TV host and author, Nigella Lawson, and Forever Summer , her fresh and innovative cookbook that leaves you with the feeling of summer all year round, from around the world.
In the classic style of her earlier books, here Lawson offers a wide range of summer recipes from Italian, Greek, and Spanish cuisines that can actually be eaten at any time. With an emphasis on easy cooking and easy eating, these recipes include a Moroccan roast lamb and North African prawn curry, the traditional strawberries-and-cream of an English afternoon picnic, the traditional Spanish barbeque, a selection of unusual ice creams and other desserts including a luscious Margarita Cheesecake ice cream, and so much more.
This book ties in with Lawson’s Channel 4 TV series by the same name in the UK, and is a sure must-have for all cookbook shelves. Clearly, Nigella Lawson makes both the living and eating easy for summer.
