Nigella Lawson Has A New Book Coming. Here's What You Need To Know

Nigella Lawson has inspired fans with her motto, "cook, eat, repeat" and the show that shares its name (via IMDb). And soon, North American audiences can enjoy her latest recipes at their own pace at home. First released in October 2020 to British markets, Lawson's book by the same title, Cook, Eat, Repeat, was announced in August and described by Lawson herself: "Exciting news! I am thrilled to announce my new book COOK EAT REPEAT, out this October. Subtitled 'Ingredients, recipes and stories,' it focusses on the rhythms and rituals of the kitchen and intertwines recipes with narrative essays about food and stories from a cooking life" (via Twitter).

The British author and celebrity chef has given her work catchy chapter titles such as "A is for Anchovy", "Beetroot and Me", "A Vegan Feast", and 'Brown Food'" (via Nigella Lawson's website). The book covers 50 new recipes and Lawson adds, "The recipes I write come from my life, my home." In her Twitter announcement, she also hinted at having at least one TV tie-in to these recipes (hopefully, multiple tie-ins are in the cards). Fans were truly excited. There was just one problem – this was only the UK edition, so American audiences had to wait. Fortunately, that wait is almost over.

Cook, Eat, Repeat on April 20th

Lawson recently announced great news to U.S. and Canadian audiences, sharing that they now have the option to pre-order her book, which will be available on April 20th, 2021 (via Twitter). Fans are thrilled, as one describes: "Good news. Before all this, I'd travel to the UK and buy food and drinks books I thought were unlikely to be published for the US/Canadian markets. Not this one. I knew this one would be coming. Retaining the original measurements?" Don't worry, Lawson assures us, "The measurements are in cups, and baking recipes are in cups and metric!"

And even more importantly, what should you cook first when your book arrives? The Fish Finger Bhorta from the new cover tantalizes us with an almost artisan and adult take on our childhood fish fingers. Described by Happy Foodie as a "transformed freezer food," this dish mixes fish fingers and spinach with a paste made from mustard, chili, garlic, and ginger and finishes it all with pickled onions. For dessert, try the Warm Chocolate Tahini and Banana Brownie. Think of this kind of like a warmed-up moist brownie pudding with a savory nutty sesame twist

There are so many dishes to choose from, you'll want to block off some time when your book arrives and meander your way across this tasting journey.
