What did Nigella say about Cook, Eat, Repeat?

After last week’s episode of the BBC Two cookery show, the last in the series, one fan left a question on Twitter.

The user asked: “How on earth does @Nigella_Lawson stay slim? So far she’s made crab mac ‘n’ cheese and chocolate cookies. It’s not fair!”

“The fake gorging is only for the camera.”

That’s when Nigella sprung into action.

Sumptuous mac ‘n’ cheese

The crab mac ‘n’ cheese divided viewers when Nigella made it.

“There are some people who take the view that you should never meddle with a classic,” she said while making it.

I’m sorry to sound immodest, but my crab mac and cheese is the most sumptuous of all.

“And up to a point, I’d agree, but the thing is, if you love cooking, it’s just impossible not to want to play with ideas and flavours.”
