“I don’t believe you can ever really cook unless you love eating.”

If you are a cooking fanatic, we are sure you must have heard of her. Nigella Lawson! Nigella at her best
An English journalist, broadcaster, television personality, gourmand, and food writer.

As described in http://www.foodnetwork.com/….Nigella Lawson, food enthusiast, television personality and journalist, is the bestselling author of eight books: Nigella Express: Good Food Fast, Feast: Food to Celebrate Life, Nigella Fresh, Nigella Bites, How to Be a Domestic Goddess, How to Eat, which have sold in excess of 6 million copies worldwide, and Nigella Christmas: Food Family Friends Festivities. Her groundbreaking iPhone App debuted in April 2010 and her book, NIGELLA KITCHEN Recipes From the Heart of the Home, which accompanies her television series of the same name seen on Food Network, is a return to her signature focus on feel-good food for the way we eat today.


Quotes by Nigella

Smart, elegant, gorgeous and a passionate cook, she puts life into the recipes she whips up so soulfully…

Her personality is wonderfully sketched out in the excerpt below:

Though Lawson has enjoyed a successful career in cookery, she is not a trained chef, and does not like being referred to as a “celebrity chef”. Furthermore, she does not see herself as a cook or an expert in her field. Throughout Lawson’s television programmes, she emphasises that she cooks for her own pleasure, for enjoyment, and that she finds cooking therapeutic. When deciding upon which recipes to feature in her books, she takes the view of the eater, stating, “If it’s something I don’t want to carry on eating once I’m full, then I don’t want the recipe … I have to feel that I want to cook the thing again”…….
