Nigella has just published her 11th cookbook, At My Table: A Celebration of Home Cooking,
“It’s a celebration of home cooking. My books come out of my life. I love traditional food, and I’m never going to complain about having a pie! Roast chicken is my favourite food,” she said. “I think in this country we are very open to different tastes and cuisines, and looking at fresh ways to eat. And I think that is something to be celebrated.”
