The star has written a new cookery book and will be signing copies at Waterstones on Coney Street.

At My Table is subtitled ‘A celebration of home cooking’, and Nigella calls it “a book of recipes that tell my ongoing life with food”.

She will be at Waterstones for two hours on October 26. On its Facebook page the bookshop says, “We are expecting this signing to be very busy, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.”

Known as the Domest Goddess, as well as for her flirtatious style on her cookery shows, Nigella has been writing books about food for nearly 20 years.

She says of At My Table:

Food is not just fuel, it’s about memory and the stories of our lives and for me that means the food I ate growing up, the food I’ve cooked for friends and family sitting around my table and the recipes in this book reflect that.

Recipes include

  • Flash-Fried Squid with Tomato and Tequila Salsa
  • Chicken Fricassee with Marsala and Chestnuts
  • White Chocolate Cheesecake
  • and Emergency Brownies.

Nigella isn’t the only foodie writer heading to Waterstones this autumn. Instagram star and TV chef Miguel Barclay is at the store on September 30.

And if biographies are more your thing Claire Tomalin, who has written best-selling books on the lives of Charles Dickens and Jane Austen among others, is talking about her memoir on October 9.
