Author of the Month: Nigel Slater

When Nigel Slater appeared on Desert Island Discs in 2005, one of his picks was ‘Baby Love’ by the Supremes – a fitting choice, since for many years he has been one of the country’s ‘supreme’ food writers.

He is perhaps best known for his memoir Toast: The Story of a Boy’s Hunger, which has been adapted for both stage and screen. For twenty years he has been the Observer’s food columnist. His cookbooks include Appetite, Eat – the Little Book of Fast Food, and – most recently – his two Greenfeast books – one covering spring and summer flavours, the other autumn and winter.

There isn’t a winter breakfast he enjoys more than warm rice and miso soup.

Nigel Slater will be at the shop on Friday 22 November to sign copies of his latest books. Tickets are free, but booking is essential. Book here.
