Some of Nigella's cookbooks have themes, such as holiday cooking or Italian-inspired. Simply Nigella likely could be summarized as "comfort food," in the sense of "dishes that help you slow down, unwind, restore-oneself, and appreciate life a little more." Her own life, for the past couple of years, certainly has demonstrated a need for this... and among the many things I admire about the woman is her ability to impart that Finding-Comfort to others. (So hey, thanks lady.)
But you could ignore all that and just get down to the recipes.
I've made a few things so far, and have little stickies marking quite a few more dishes. I began with a solo supper of "feta and avocado salad with red onions, pomegranate, and [I left these out because they hid on my spice shelf:] nigella seeds," which was tasty -- not OMG YOU MUST EAT THIS but only a few minutes to throw together. I also made her super-easy "chicken traybake with bitter orange and fennel." You throw the chicken into an easy marinade, then dump it in a pan in the oven while you work on something more important (say, Facebook status updates). It was yummy and gave me a few days of leftovers (though next time I'll chunk the fennel into smaller pieces).
The OH WOW dinner so far, however, was her Indian-spiced Shepherd's pie. That's not an easy-throw-together dinner; it's the sort that requires a little time puttering in the kitchen, but oh SO worth it. The topping is made from sweet potatoes (with lime and cardamom and ginger); the filling is lamb (I used beef), ginger, garlic, onion, tomatoes, red lentils, and a warming set of spices (cardamom, cumin, garam masala, etc.). I'll be making this dish many more times!
Among the dishes marked for "make this soon:" Brazilian cheese bread (it uses tapioca flour, so it's okay on my mostly-paleo diet); date and marmalade Christmas cake (which uses almonds, no wheat flour); roasted radishes; slow-cooker chickpeas with cumin and spinach; oven-cooked chicken shawarma.
In short: Yum. Yes, of course you need this cookbook!
He loves it because he can actually make these recipes successfully, but he's proud that his finished product often looks like the pictures in the book.
My favourite is the Salted Chocolate cake!
