Writer and cook Nigel Slater is one of Britain’s most respected and widely read voices on all things culinary. Since 1993, he’s penned a weekly column in The Observer magazine, weaving together personal reflections and handy recipes, and he’s published a number of diaries, memoirs, and recipe books. One of those books, his 2010 autobiographical novel “Toast,” was adapted into both a film and a play. He is also, it turns out, an avid collector of ceramics—pots, plates, bowls, cups and everything in between. He once invited us into his home to explore, photograph, discuss and even sip from some of his many cherished pieces.
“You can make the same recipes you know over and over again, and it’s different every time. I know from talking to potters that it's the same with pots.”
