I love this interview that Nigella did with Ryan Tubridy on the RTE’s The Late Late Show.
Nigella talks about chocolate and how it’s not a particular favourite of hers, instead preferring savoury foods. She points out that her girlfriends are always amazed that she keeps chocolate in the house but doesn’t feel the need to eat it. She goes on to point out that it’s only an issue for those friends who are on a permanent diet, not eating all day long, only to shovel it in to their pie holes in the evening. OK she didn’t mention pie holes, but hopefully you get the gist?
A great bit in the interview is when Nigella is disparaging about Cheese and Onion Crisps. She says they don’t taste like cheese, they don’t taste like onion and they smell of B.O.
She may just be on to something here! I need to go sniff a bag of cheese and onion and see whether they have any eau de armpit going on.
But, the absolute best bit is when the host asks her about fast food, and asks whether she’s ever had a Big Mac. The audience falls about when Nigella replies, “No, but I have had a Whopper.”
Classic naughty Nigella!! Love it.
Have a watch, it’ll bring a smile to your face.
