    'Food, for me, is a constant pleasure: I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning and beauty... More than just a mantra, "cook, eat, repeat" is the story of my life.' OVER 150 DELICIOUS NEW RECIPES NEW TV SERIES, COOK, EAT, REPEAT, NOW ON BBC TWOCook, Eat, Repeat is a delicious and delightful combination of recipes intertwined with narrative essays about food, all written in Nigella's engaging and insightful prose.
