Product Description

The Domestic Goddess is back, and this time it's instant. Nigella and her style of cooking have earned a special place in our lives, symbolizing all that is best, most pleasurable, most hands-on, and least fussy about good food. But that doesn't mean she wants us to spend hours in the kitchen, slaving over a hot stove.

Featuring fabulous fast foods, ingenious shortcuts, terrific time-saving ideas, effortless entertaining tips, and simple, scrumptious meals, Nigella Express is her solution to eating well when time is short. Here are mouthwatering meals, quick to prepare and easy to follow, that you can conjure up after a day in the office or on a busy weekend, for family or unexpected guests. This is food you can make as you hit the kitchen running, with vital advice on how to keep your pantry stocked, and your freezer and fridge stacked. When time is precious, you can®™t spend hours shopping, so you need to make life easier by being prepared. Not that these recipes are basic, though they are always simple, but it's important to make every ingredient earn its place, minimizing effort by maximizing taste.

Here too is great food that can be prepared quickly but cooked slowly in the oven, leaving you time to have a bath, a drink, talk to friends, or help the children with their homework, minimum stress for maximum enjoyment.

Nigella Express features a new generation of fast food, never basic, never dull, always doable, quick, and delicious.

Featuring recipes seen on Food Network®™s Nigella Express series.

Praise for Nigella Lawson and her cookbooks:

Customer Reviews:

  • Love This!
    Nigella is in top form for this new theme. The express recipes are just as clever and delicious...designed for the quickie meals! Perfect for the "OMG what am I going to make for dinner?" days! I love being able to come up with really interesting and delicious meals that are made with real food when time is short, instead of relying on quick fix mixes that don't taste good and are filled with additives. ...more info

  • Easy and Delicious
    I have already made the cheesecake from the cookbook. It was a little rich, but so very easy and delicious. She makes it easy to substitute ingredients if you don't have them in stock. As a busy mother, there are alot of helpful recipes so I spend less time in the kitchen and more time with my family. There are salads, amazing desserts, wonderfully easy meals and nearly every recipe has a twist on an old favourite. It's a great buy if you want to eat good food,don't have a lot of time and need some inspiration....more info

  • Still not received order
    A month later and I have still not received the ordered book. Sending a request to review a book that is yet to be received shows significant lack of internal communication....more info
  • Get off the cell phone
    I was studying the cover of this book and something about it bothered me.. and then it hit me. it was the fact that the picture on the cover has her on a CELL PHONE. yes, its supposed to be rapid food or whatever, but give me a break. who stirs pasta while sending a text message?...more info
  • As titled--good and fast!
    Recipes are simple--although there are some hard to find ingredients, and have fast work time. Lawson often advocates flavor over healthfulness in both ingredients and preparation techniques, but the portion sizes are moderate. The soups/stew and desserts are particularly good....more info
  • express it is!
    I LOVE NIGELLA!! She never disappoints! Great recipes-the pea soup is my fave!!! I mix it up by adding chicken stick instead of water-soo yummy! For anyone that wants so fun in the kitchen-get this book!...more info
  • Bad American Adaptation
    Not having seen it, I can't comment on the British edition. The American edition, however, was sloppily done. Many of the recipes call for ingredients that we either cannot get in the U.S., or are called by a different name. Too bad....more info
  • Good for the experienced cook who wants to try something a little different
    I heard Nigella on the radio talking about this book (see recipe for Breakfast Bruschetta) and purchased it as a gift for my mom for Christmas. Thankfully, she bought the same cookbook for me! Irrespective of your fondness for Nigella and her particular way of expressing herself, the recipes are unique, delicious, tempting and easy. Got the cookbook yesterday, whipped up a batch of pancakes this a.m. for the kids and have set aside the "extra" dry ingredients, pre-mixed, for another day soon, when we are in the mood for pancakes but in a hurry. Can't wait to try more of the recipes. The cookbook is also very enjoyable to look through: great photos, easy-to-read text. I would recommend it for someone who is experienced; sometimes the directions assume you have knowledge (e.g, the pancake recipe says "heat a griddle" but doesn't tell you to what temp, such as medium, high, etc. You need to know that or your pancakes will turn out lousy.) Enjoy!...more info
  • Love this cookbook
    I love this cookbook, I only wish it was thicker. I read it like a regular book, put stickies on the pages I wanted to try, and when I got to the end I wanted more.
    The recipes I have tried so far have been terrific....more info
  • Lots of hits and some misses

    I love Nigella but her recipes always took so long. So when I saw this cookbook in the book store, I knew I had to get it. I particularly liked that many of these recipes were from my childhood.

    We have enjoyed many recipes, and some are now permanent fixtures but there were a few recipes that did not go down as well.

    Great cookbook to add to your collection....more info
  • nigella is lovely as ever
    my husband gave this to me for my birthday because i'm always talking about how much i love nigella's show and i love this book even more. it's a beautiful book just to look at and sometimes beautiful cookbooks don't deliver the best recipes. this one does. noodle soup for needy people is already our favorite dinner. super-fast and easy for a weeknight. i'm really looking forward to trying out different recipes, especially the irish cream tiramisu! i really like her commentary before each recipe and her suggestion that you use her ingredients/recipes as guidelines more than as a bible. well done, nigella!...more info
  • She's done it again!
    Nigella has done it again with Nigella Express. I was a little worried even before it was released. The title and theme of cooking fast seemed a bit Rachel Rayish for me. I didn't want Nigella to stoop to Food Network standards (THEY don't deserve her and its a damn shame that they only play her on Sunday morning while they whore the other food network personalities shows(with half the charm and talent) several times every day!) But upon immediatley devouring this book (as I have all of her books (they read better than alot of novels out there)), I discovered that my fears were unfounded. The recipes are simple, the ingredients are easy to obtain and work with, and the food is down-right comforting. Nigella's tone of voice speaks to you in comforting way. She admits to flaw and encourages dissension. She makes you at ease with the prospect of cooking. She doesn't confuse. She doesn't try too hard with elaborate recipes. One of the things I like about her is that she consistantly uses the same ingredients (her favorites: lime, chili, mint, fish sauce, garlic infused oil, etc.) which means shes on our level. I've already made a good handful of the recipes in this book to cheers of "More! More!". She gets it and I feel like I get her. I like Nigella. ...more info
