Ripe is Nigel Slater's fruit-related follow-up to his beautiful vegetable book, Tender, and it does not disappoint. Following the same format as the first book (which I lovingly featured here), Ripe is as much a cookbook as it is a guide to growing your own beautiful fruits and nuts. But it is Slater's tone that makes these books stand out; with personal stories relating to each item, it feels friendly and nostalgic.
