The Domestic Goddess returned in her second Food Network series, Nigella Express, launched in fall 2007 in conjunction with the release of Nigella Express. American audiences also know Nigella as host of Forever Summer with Nigella, her popular cooking/lifestyle series that aired on Style, and Nigella Bites, which aired on E! Entertainment Television and Style.

In July 2003, Nigella launched Nigella Lawson’s Living Kitchen, a range of kitchen items designed in collaboration with Sebastian Conran, to widespread acclaim in the U.S.

She has written for a variety of magazines and newspapers, including The Sunday Times, Evening Standard, Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Observer, Times Magazine and in the U.S. for Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines. She originated the restaurant column in The Spectator and wrote the food column for British Vogue for several years. Nigella also wrote a bi-monthly food column for The New York Times Dining In, Dining Out section.

Hailed as Author of the Year by the 2001 British Book Awards, Nigella was also named Bon Appetit magazine’s 2002 “Tastemaker of the Year.” How to Eat was honoured as the 1998 British Books Awards Illustrated Book of the Year, while How to Be a Domestic Goddess was named Cookery Book of the Year by the Guild of Food Writers in 2001. Nigella Bites received the WH Smith Book Awards 2002 Lifestyle Book of the Year, with the cooking series based on the book winning the Gold Ladle for Best Television Food Show from the World Food Media Awards in 2001.

In 1992, Nigella married the journalist and broadcaster John Diamond. John was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1997 and died in 2001. They had two children together, Cosima and Bruno. Nigella remarried in 2003 and lives in London with husband, Charles Saatchi, and her children.

                      Over a hundred relaxed, achievable and delicious recipes; enjoy the food that Nigella shares day-to-day at her table.‘Our lives are formed by memories, and the focus of mine is the food I’ve cooked and the people I’ve cooked for, the people who have sat at my table, as well as the other tables I’ve eaten on, from the blue formica of my childhood, to the mottled zinc that is the nexus of my life now. The food is this book, that comes from my kitchen, is eaten at my table, and will be eaten at yours, is the food I have always loved cooking. It doesn't require technique, dexterity or expertise, none of which I lay claim to. Life is complicated: cooking doesn't have to be.' – Nigella LawsonNigella Lawson is a champion of the home cook and her new book celebrates the food she loves to cook for friends and family. The recipes are warming, comforting, and inspirational, from new riffs on classic dishes – including Chicken Fricassee and Sticky Toffee Pudding – to adventures in a host of new dishes and ingredients, from Aubergine Fattet to White Miso Hummus.AT MY TABLE includes dishes to inspire all cooks and eaters, from Hake with BaconPeas and Cider to Indian-Spiced Chicken and Potato Traybake and Chilli Mint Lamb Cutlets; plus a host of colourful vegetable dishes, like Eastern Mediterranean Chopped Salad and Carrots and Fennel with Harissa.No Nigella cookbook would be complete without sweet treats, and AT MY TABLE is no exception, with Emergency BrowniesWhite Chocolate Cheesecake and a Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Marmalade and Crème Fraiche set to become family favourites.As Nigella writes, ‘happiness is best shared’ and the food in this book will be served and savoured at your own kitchen table just as it is at hers.
