A Slice of Fried Gold
"I want to eat everything in this book every single day for the rest of my life" - James Acaster.
From Spaced and Hot Fuzz to Paul and Truth Seekers, Nick Frost has lit up our screens for decades w ith his perfectly observed, just-the-right-side-of-absurd sketches and films. He's also a keen, self-taught cook: so keen, in fact, that in lockdow n, he personally delivered pies to his Instagram follow ers. This book is his love letter to food, to kitchens and the people in them. Nick's favourite thing to eat aged 10 w as his mother's stroganoff and as her alcoholism w orsened, he began to learn to cook it himself, gradually taking over and using it as a magic trick to conjure up the very best bits of her - the stable, sober bits, w hich became harder to find as the years w ent on. This w as the beginning of a lifelong love of process and technique, of escaping into a w orld of hisses, blips and thunks of a knife on a board.
