Nigella put crab in mac and cheese last night, leaving BBC viewers sorely divided.
During the episode, Nigella Lawson whipped up a macaroni and cheese dish containing crab.
What did Nigella Lawson say about her crab mac and cheese recipe?
She said on the programme: “There are some people who take the view that you should never meddle with a classic. 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.
“Besides, mac and cheese lends itself to so many sumptuous versions.”
She added: “I’m sorry to sound immodest, but my crab mac and cheese is the most sumptuous of all.”
What did BBC viewers think of the crab mac and cheese recipe?
However on Twitter, a number of viewers branded it “disgusting”, with some even claiming it didn’t qualify as a true mac and cheese.
One wrote: “Dear god that first crab and macaroni dish on #nigella looks disgusting…”
A second put: “Why would you spoil mac n cheese by putting crab in it? Really??? #nigella.”
Another tweeted: “Crab should be nowhere near mac and cheese #Nigella.”
Sorry to sound immodest, but my crab mac and cheese is the most sumptuous of all.
“Oh Nigella, what has happened sweetie? Crab and cheese?” joked a fourth. “Can I find it in my heart to ever forgive you?”
