NIGELLA Lawson launches new book written during lockdown and embarks on a new TV series.
Cook, Eat, Repeat, Nigella’s new and most literary book yet, is a charming mix of homely recipes and extended essays, such as ‘A Loving Defence of Brown Food’. Indeed, one of these essays had to take a dramatic u-turn as lockdown was announced – Nigella had been writing about throwing a dinner party.
Speaking with The Guardian about her shift in priorities during the pandemic, Nigella said: “It was hard. But I suppose that survival thing kicked in, and it felt important to think about food because it became clear [during lockdown] that it gave structure, sustenance and pleasure.”
Nigella herself found pleasure in the solitude, relaxing at the end of a long day with a drink and “that fantastically retro thing of putting crisps in a bowl. It’s so great!”
Reflecting on being entirely alone during lockdown – she is divorced and her children now live away from home – she said she found the time “wonderful, which I know sounds awful. But I’m very happy not having to fill up my life going to things. I very much like having no public life.”
