Incredibly, NIGELLA LAWSON has been teaching us about the pleasures of cooking (and eating) since her first book, How to Eat, hit the shelves in 1998 – seriously, that’s coming up 25 years. Since then she’s gone on to write a shelf full of books, present a Sky Planner filled with cookery shows and all the while keeping us entertained, and in a roundabout sort of way, very well fed.
They always say you enjoy food for it’s taste, after you’ve had a feast with your eyes. With Nigella however, she has this way of describing food which is not only sumptuous but a little sensual.
Now we get to spend an evening with Nigella as she shares the rhythms and rituals of her kitchen to celebrate her latest book COOK, EAT, REPEAT – a delicious and delightful combination of recipes intertwined with narrative essays about food, all written in Nigella’s engaging and insightful prose.
You can check out every episode in the series right HERE.
Live in conversation, Nigella will explore how cooking is a personal, intuitive and connecting process, how one meal idea leads to another, and how one ingredient can spawn a multitude of ideas and recipes.
Whether asking ‘what is a recipe?’ or making ‘A Loving Defence of Brown Food’, Nigella’s wisdom about food and life comes to the fore.
In announcing this tour, albeit slightly delayed thanks to the pandemic, Nigella said……
“I have some exciting news! It was a great disappointment for me that, for obvious reasons, I couldn’t do a book tour when Cook, Eat, Repeat came out last October, and so I am beyond pleased to be able to announce my mini-tour this autumn.”
“My books would be nothing without you, my readers, and it is a great joy for me to be able to go on the road once again and get a chance to talk to you about food, cooking and all that entails in a wider context, as well as my favourite part: answering your questions!”
Nigella was voted author of the year at the 2001 British Book Awards. In the same year 2001 she was awarded – but turned down – an OBE from Her Majesty the Queen for services to journalism and cookery.
With the latest book, her approach to cooking has never been more relevant, serving up an abundance of inspiration for every generation.
“Food, for me, is a constant pleasure: I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning and beauty… More than just a mantra, “cook, eat, repeat” is the story of my life.”
