It brilliant. Beef with allspice, orange, sage, and bay is divine. I am gluten free so I can't have the stout, and just used a gluten free ale. And of course to all the people griping, salt is to taste. Put whatever salt you want, duh. Gorgeous Nigella.

This cake is a masterwork. IGNORE the low ratings.
It just drives me insane when people give a low rating to the recipe, when really they are rating their experience. Especially when the comment goes on to describe how they fault was their own. Use a little sense. You have to taste your citrus before using it to see if the pith is bitter....

Incredible. Of course being in America, buying venison wasnt an option so i used pork and buffalo. And I also put biscuits on top instead of potato mash. But the stew, with the beautiful combination of marsala, porcini liquid and worcestershire sauce was a complete knock out. Thank you Nigella for always coming through for me and my family"

Forget ANYONE who's pedestrian tastes may have prompted them to give it a low rating. The reason it comes out too salty is the difference in the kinds of salt we use in the States. Just use half a teaspoon or so. The only thing...

I made this tonight, sorrowfully with boneless/skinless thighs, but the result was still Sunday-evening satisfying. I omitted the potatoes because of a welcoming stash of leftover rice, but added a scattering of garlic cloves for extra oven-made indulgence. We all ravaged it, I am so pleased share. Thank you Nigella"

I loved it. I incorporated it with a creole rice dish that has spinach, celery, bell pepper, scallion and parsley. Also chicken instead of salmon, so the poaching time was a lot longer. But the result was sublime. Such a great recipe, and such a wonderful idea, not something I would have ever come up with on my own. She's the best!!""
