Synopsis

'What you have in your hands is a ragbag collection of the happiest of times, the small moments of joy that have been the seasoning in this cook’s stew. A little box of curiosities to dip into, to comfort and to distract, albeit briefly, from more complicated times'

From award-winning food writer Nigel Slater, a lyrical and meditative volume of treasured memories and observations. Filling countless notebooks and diaries with odes to everyday pleasures, these are details of a life lived mostly in the kitchen, but which also tell of time spent in the garden, on trains and planes, of life at home and away. A view of snowdrops under the gnarled branches of an oak tree; the first letters on the crisp pages of a new diary; a battered wicker basket of dumplings fresh from the steamer.

A Thousand Feasts shows that warmth and purpose can be found everywhere, even when the world around us feels dark and unforgiving.
