Wrest your eyes away from Nigella’s exquisite kitchen (ooh, that walk-in larder, those shelves of colourful pots and pans, the array of gleaming kitchen gadgetry), because she’s making a meal that’s also a feast for the eyes.
First: Sambuca kisses, doughnuts she describes as being so light they give “the lightest fluttering caress in the mouth” — and you can’t say that about the ones that you buy at a funfair.
Her pork loin recipe, she assures us, looks complicated when you see it in all its finished glory, but is really very simple to make.
But most startling of all is her “mock mash”, a quick-to-make dish that tastes like potato but is made with semolina, of all things.
Nigella Lawson prepares pork loin stuffed with oregano and Parma ham, served with mock mash and vignarola. She extols the virtues of spelt spaghetti, which she accompanies with an olive and anchovy sauce that can be made without cooking, and also demonstrates her recipe for sambuca kisses, a doughnut-like sweet.
