A Slice of Fried Gold

Nick Frost

From Shelf: The BA Christmas Catalogue.

A slice of gold, from one of Britain's best-loved comedians, covering life, food and everything in between.

'I want to eat everything in this book every single day for the rest of my life' - James Acaster'Sweet and funny and weird...as well as genuinely insightful about cooking' - Hadley Freeman, The Sunday Times'As touching as it is delicious' - The Evening StandardFrom Spaced and Hot Fuzz to Paul and Truth Seekers, Nick Frost has lit up our screens for decades with 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 lockdown, he personally delivered pies to his Instagram followers.This book is his love letter to food, to kitchens and the people in them.Nick's favourite thing to eat aged 10 was his mother's stroganoff and as her alcoholism worsened, 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, which became harder to find as the years went on. This was the beginning of a lifelong love of process and technique, of escaping into a world of hisses, blips and thunks of a knife on a board.A Slice of Fried Gold is a delicious mixture of hearty recipes, stories and digressions from one of Britain's most loved actors and writers.
