A delicious love letter to the tastes and smells that a young boy associates with his journey into adulthood. Nigel's mother was always a poor cook, and her addiction to all things canned isn't helping. Nigel, on the other hand, laps up cookbooks as if they were porn, and spends all his free time gazing longingly at the delights offered at Percy Salt's grocery shop.

This could have been a great film. But it was done too superficially - although the acting is fantastic. I just wish they had delved a little deeper. Still enjoyable.

This movie is charming. Victoria Hamilton does a wonderful job as Nigel's mother. Both my husband and I enjoyed it. A nice touch was the appearance of Nigel Slater himself at the very end of the movie. He was the chef eating a piece of toast who hired young Nigel and reassured him he was going to be all right.
