Product description


It is hard to convey just what a staggering achievement Lateral Cooking is. Segnit is truly a one-woman Larousse. Only the scope is so much wider and deeper: this book covers continents! . I can lose myself in it any time, from any page, and you could cook from it over a whole lifetime, and still be learning (Nigella Lawson)

The cookbooks that teach you the most are the rare ones, experimental or not, that are so well written that you find yourself reading them greedily on a perpetual loop. Lateral Cooking is one of them (Bee Wilson Times Literary Supplement)

A rigorous, nuts-and-bolts bible of a book, which works from the premise that there are base recipes from which all others can be built... It's elegantly designed and extremely broad (Jay Rayner Observer)

My most anticipated book of the year (Helen Goh)

Witty, playful and conversational (Diana Henry Sunday Telegraph)

This year's star book... It's a cracker: a hefty volume with a simple premise... Segnit has an appealing authorial voice: funny, friendly and authoritative (Evening Standard)

Segnit is a brilliantly clever cook who sometimes seems to have eaten every great dish in the world, but the real joy is her exuberant voice, which feels like listening to a witty friend (Sunday Times)

Book of the decade, if you ask me... Every cook should have it (Elisabeth Luard)

Knowledgeable and humorous, with a focus on flavour and technique, this cookbook is informative, useful and sure to become a kitchen bible to many (Guardian ‘Best Books of 2018’)

In a year that's been a bonanza for cookbooks, this is the one I'd put top of my list (Independent)

Book Description
