Sunday lunch with Nigella in Melbourne

“Food, for me, is a constant pleasure,” says Nigella Lawson. “I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning and beauty as well as sustenance and structure.” This engagement, this depth of feeling might well be what makes the difference between someone being a keen observer of some tasty things and the author of some very good recipes, and that person being a phenomenon in publishing, an internationally successful broadcaster, and a single-word synonym for good food, good taste and good times: Nigella. It was with great pleasure that Melbourne Food & Wine Festival had Nigella Lawson to lunch at Fed Square in March 2022 and, over three courses and a conversation with her old friend Matt Preston, explored her challenges of the pandemic, the wonders of cooking for one, and the joys of getting out again into the wider world. After all, as Nigella says, “Melbourne is the best medicine”. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
