"Vivid and fresh... we would drive on the left side of the road to get to her molten-chocolate baby cakes."
"Ms. Lawson brings to life the sensual aspects of cooking, helping you understand not only what you are after, but also the pleasure of the journey."
"Nigella is an icon: a smart, sexy woman who promulgates the idea that it might be fun or even relaxing to make time to cook again...In Nigellaworld, the kitchen is not a science lab with rigid rules and formulas to follow. It's a place to play, sometimes with your friends and kids."

- A lot of delicious recipes here, representing a variety a palattes. My favorite section was the "Retro Rapido" where old-school recipes (like avocado & crayfish salad and chef's salad) are Nigella-fied.
- The desserts in particular were relatively easy and spectacular. If you want to make a big "WOW!" at the conclusion of a meal without driving yourself crazy, you'll find plenty of options.
- Nigella, as always, is a beautiful writer. I can pretty much sit down on the couch with any of her cookbooks and read them like novella, even if I don't try all the recipes. This book is no exception.
- There were quite a few recipes that Nigella prefaces with "The ingredient list looks long but..." Sure, once you have everything bought and prepped it's easy to put these dishes together, but an extensive shopping list and a lot of prep work is pretty much the antithesis of express.
- A lot of the ingredients are obscure; this is very typical for Nigella, though. Even if you live in a big city with lots of specialty grocers (like New York or London) that's still a lot of time out of your day to hunt some of these things down or order them online and wait for them to be shipped. Again, that's not express.
- The introduction said that a lot of pantry ingredients would be repeated through out the book, but a lot of them weren't. That makes finding the specialty ingredients make even less sense, especially if you have limited pantry space.
