For the British-born food writer, journalist and TV presenter Nigella Lawson a love a cooking came at an early age. It did not translate into a career, however, until some time much later. Lawson originally began working in publishing and flourished with her journalism career, where she spent some time in front of the camera. She came into the field of food journalism "by accident," Lawson tells World Screen, and was reluctant, at first, to bring her talents into the world of television.
After penning a number of cookbooks, Lawson signed on for Nigella Bites, which ran on Channel 4. The series later aired in the U.S. and audiences on both sides of the pond embraced the host for her charismatic presenting style and approachable take on home cooking. She became the center of a franchise, with further TV credits that include, among others, Nigella Feasts, Nigella Express, Nigella Kitchen and a number of specials as well as a slew of cookery books.
In her latest TV series, Nigellissima, currently airing on BBC Two and sold by BBC Worldwide, Lawson teaches viewers how to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen and onto the dinner table. Lawson discusses her new show in this video interview, also sharing with us how she has managed to stay true to her home-cooking roots (despite having achieved celebrity status).
