MAKING THE WORLD SAFE FOR SONDRA LEE:

It’s Nigella’s world (Feargus O'Sullivan, January 05. 2010, The National)

She boils meat in Coca-Cola, once ate 20 pickled eggs in 10 minutes for a bet and claims she has “the legs of a shot-putter gone to flab”. On the surface of it, Nigella Lawson doesn’t make the most obvious domestic goddess. But that could be the reason why the TV chef and writer – who turns 50 today – is so adored by people the world over for her breezy, refreshing attitude to home cooking. Though she has only been on television for 12 years, she’s become one of the few small-screen chefs everybody recognises. With film-star looks and a reputation for pushing guilt-free indulgence, she’s now one of the top names in the business, having amassed a fortune pushing £15 million (Dh88m). So why, exactly, has she proved so unbeatable?

Put simply, because both the woman and her cooking are unusually gorgeous and approachable.
