How to be a Domestic Goddess is not about being a goddess, but about feeling like one. What this deliciously reassuring and mouthwatering cookbook shows is that it's not hard to bake a tray of muffins, or a sponge layer cake - but the rewards are high. Here is the book that feeds our fantasies, understands our anxieties and puts cakes, pies, pastries, preserves, puddings, bread and biscuits back into our own kitchens. With a writer's flair and a cook's passion, Nigella brings you everything from brownies to bagels, from gooseberry-cream crumble to double apple pie, from pizza to pistachio macaroons, from festive bake to Barbie cake.

UK Kirkus Review »
We all have days when we wish we could dust our forearms with flour and bake the perfect cake or loaf just for the therapy, the smell and the satisfaction. But for most of us this dream never becomes a reality because life is just too busy. Lawson shows us how to get great results from baking without the sweat and with all the romance. Her descriptions are charged with love and enthusiasm - and a touch of realism: 'You might think that preparing the tins sounds fiddly, but in fact the job is just demanding enough to make one feel uncharacteristically competent in a Blue Peter kind of way, but not so demanding that actual dexterity is required.' This is an ABC for scrummy, feel-good comfort food, which will make everyone think you're a goddess in the kitchen. (Kirkus UK)
