Nigella's Kitchen

In the great tradition of cooking shows ending imaginatively in the word ‘Kitchen’ comes Nigella Lawson’s latest outing, a two-disc, 13-episode gastronomic cavalcade showcasing everything from the modest cream cake to a hearty Christmas banquet and everything in between.  

An ode to modern cuisine with an emphasis on speed and practicality, the recipes contained within all bear Nigella’s trademark inventiveness and are presented with her usual gusto – I for one have never seen a TV chef so unabashedly and genuinely intoxicated by the wonders of cookery.  Not for that matter have I seen one as simply intoxicated as Lawson appears to be in the Christmas episode, having apparently ingested too much of her own trademark champers cocktail. 

Never afraid to let her hair down, Lawson is also typically undaunted by the notion of showcasing the various sides to her personality on screen, from ultra-genial host to time-pressed working mother to passionate foodie, cooking for the simple joy of creating something delicious.  Over the course of the series we see her cooking meals for her teenage son, entertaining for dozens of friends, lunching with gal pals and tending to her multimillion dollar business empire.   

It’s an intimate glimpse into the life of one of Britain’s best-loved celebrity chefs, but the focus remains of course, the food, and once more the dozens of recipes to be found within are a sublime testament to Nigella’s oft-stated ethos: ‘maximum flavour for minimum effort.’
