In the most brilliant piece of self-parody, Nigella Lawson dons a pair of black latex gloves to massage some chicken thighs. Oh Nigella, really…
She also talks about a meringue’s “firm peaks” and eats a luscious chocolate brownie while lounging decorously in a dressing gown on her stairs. This is not just any chocolate brownie, it’s an “emergency chocolate brownie” made from “nubbly, fudgey batter”.
So yes, all the ingredients are here in Nigella’s new series, the fairy lights, the laughing lovely friends, the cool smooth music and the wanton, finger-licking innuendo.
Nigella: at My Table is also terrifically fey. Nigella arranges flowers in “teeny vintage milk bottles” and seems to cover every available surface in tea lights. The whole thing would be insufferable, if not for some fabulous-looking food. Queen of puddings, anyone?
Nigella Lawson celebrates the food she loves to cook for friends and family at home, demonstrating a wide range of recipes that are warming, comforting and inspirational. In the first edition, she shares new discoveries like her Turkish-inspired eggs, old-fashioned favourites including the aptly named Queen of Puddings, as well as her emergency brownies. Nigella rustles up a simple chicken and pea tray-bake for a relaxed get-together around the table, and she finds a new use for a spiraliser.
