Nigel Slater is by far my absolute favorite food writer/genius. My first introduction to his work was about two years ago when whispers about the book Toast circulated around the web. Since then I've read his memoir and even watched the movie. I follow his articles in the Guardian and drool over his recipe books page by page. He's more of a food lyricist than simply a recipe writer. His level of culinary reflection and descriptiveness on each page can literally move you. Seriously, as corny (food pun!) as that sounds, I was really moved reading about a simple avocado dish he talk about in Real Fast Food. I can't wait to get my hands on his new book!!
