“Nigella covers just about all the quick bases in Express . . . this is a recipe collection that could get you through the holidays.”
–The Washington Post
“The recipes are a mix of dishes that are quick to prepare and cook–so you can have your dinner out of the grocery bag and on to the table in half an hour or so–and dishes that are easy to prepare early in the day and then are simply left to simmer slowly.”
“Nigella Lawson has conjured up a voluptuous volume of what she called `fast food for those who love eating.’ . . . it’s a Nigella-style feast . . . A perfect choice for cooks who would rather sip wine than labor over a hot stove, Nigella Express is, as the British say, brilliant.”
“A fast feast may seem like a concept at odds with itself, but the goddess of easy extravagance, Nigella Lawson, has figured out how to put together a lavish party menu in ultrashort order . . . That’s what her latest cookbook, Nigella Express, is all about–time savers that don’t compromise on flavor but are so effective you’ll feel you got away with something.”
