How to be a Domestic Goddess

by Nigella Lawson

This is the book that helped the world rediscover the joys of baking and kick-started the cupcake revolution, from cake shops around the country to The Great British Bake Off.

How To Be A Domestic Goddess is not about being a goddess, but about feeling like one. Here is the book that feeds our fantasies, understands our anxieties and puts cakes, pies, pastries, preserves, puddings, bread and biscuits back into our own kitchens.

With luscious photography, easy recipes, witty food writing and a beautiful hardback design, this is a book you will treasure for many years as well as a delicious gift for friends and family.


“Nigella’s millennial masterpiece [is] home baking’s sacred text. Not only will you want to eat everything in it, there’s a fair chance you’ll actually want to cook it too. Most importantly, the recipes are well written and rarely turn out disappointing results.”  Guardian

“Working mothers must give thanks to Nigella… What sets her apart from every other food writer is her empathy with working women and her realism… Every page of How to be a Domestic Goddess is imbued with warmth”  The Times

How to Eat was sheer joy… Now she’s done it again. If ever baking needed pepping up, Nigella does it”  Daily Express

“Her prose is as nourishing as her recipes”  Salman Rushdie, Observer

“Cerebral and scintillating advice for the hungry, peppered with wit”  Sunday Times

“Passionate, informative, detailed, bossy and admirably practical”  Evening Standard
