Nigella Lawson is a culinary goddess. Since publishing her first cookery book, How to Eat, Nigella has been teaching us about the pleasures of food. The success of her first book led to the acclaimed series Nigella Bites and placed her among Britain’s most admired celebrity chefs.

Nigella studied languages at Oxford before she embarked on a career in publishing. She went on to become deputy editor of The Sunday Times and then pursued a successful freelance career. She wrote for a range of publications, including the food magazines Gourmet and Bon Appetit in the US, Australian Delicious, and the food column for Vogue.


In 1999 she began to host her own cooking show on Channel 4, Nigella Bites, which was accompanied by another bestselling book. The Nigella Bites series won a Guild of Food Writers Award.

Nigella hosted a daytime television chat show on ITV1 called Nigella in 2005. The show saw celebrity guests join her in a studio kitchen.

Food Writer

Nigella is also the bestselling author of Nigella Express: Good Food Fast, Feast: Food to Celebrate Life, Forever Summer, Nigella Bites, How to Be a Domestic Goddess, and How to Eat, which have sold in excess of 5 million copies worldwide.

Her second Food Network series, Nigella Express, launched in fall 2007 in conjunction with the release of her book.

Nigella Lawson is possibly the most famous of all celebrity chefs and her name is practically a brand in itself.
