TV chef Nigella Lawson will return to BBC Two with a new six-part cooking series 'Nigella's Cook, Eat, Repeat'
Nigella Lawson is returning to BBC Two with new series 'Nigella's Cook, Eat, Repeat'.
The 60-year-old culinary star will dish up mouthwatering meals from the indulgent Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake to the rich, luxurious Crab Mac'n'Cheese, whilst discussing her inspiration for her most loved dishes.
She said in a statement: "More than just a mantra, cook, eat, repeat is the story of my life."
The six-part series will be followed by a one-hour Christmas special, which will see Nigella explore dishes from across the world.
She recently took part in the Australian version of 'MasterChef' as a guest judge, but has not been seen on the small screen in the UK since 2017.
Meanwhile, the cooking show host has claimed she will be going on a social "diet" following the coronavirus pandemic.
She said: "I realise that rather than finding solitary confinement alienating, it's what has always passed for real life that seems so unnatural to me now. It seems unfathomable, for example, that we used to go out at night. Why would you do that? How did any of us have the energy?
"...This is not to say I don't love my friends. Nor do I deny that company can be as uplifting as it can be exhausting. I just don't want much of it, not yet.
"And so – in words I never thought I'd utter – I'm going on a diet: the 5:2, only with people, rather than food.
"Whatever we're told we are allowed to do, I am not going to be gadding about, but for two evenings a week – or maybe just lunches at the weekend – I will pretend to be a normal person, letting those strange entities, people, into the garden, and apply myself to learning how to have a conversation again.
"For the other five, I will continue, greedily and gratefully, to feed on solitude and silence."
