Watching Nigella makes me cringe

I just know Nigella is going to cut a finger off sometime soon, while am watching, I just know it.

She looked like she'd had some bad lip filler or summat on the one show earlier.

Then smother the severed stump in marmite and pass it off as another ghastly dish to scoff at 1am in your PJ's by the light of the fridge.

She does my nut in. No need to sexualise everything!

SirBoobAlot Mon 01-Oct-12 21:04:35

YANBU. She irritates the hell out of me. Cooking can be fun, but you really don't have to try and make everything look sexy, love.

<grumble>

She looks very good for 52 - Botox or not.

I'm sure I last hear that background music in a porn film!

Lay off Nigella! She's great. I've just bought a set of her spoons! smile

"I love the way these plump globules glisten tenderly in the light!"

Hahaha, it's hilarious fun grin

She said globules?! <boak>

I have love/hate thing with ol' Nigella!

She seems lovely and I love her ideas but she seems clumsy and I blame her for giving me the idea of cutting meat with kitchen scissors.

Lovely sliced skin between my fingers angry

Nigella's my favourite chef, beautiful and cooks simple meals with passion.

I love watching her programmes - she's so smug and her face has so much expression. Her inuendos are quite funny, she's obviously having a laugh at herself. I think she's hilarious.

Nigella makes everything from packets and jars, nothing wrong with that, just saying.

Elderflowergranita Tue 02-Oct-12 00:21:50

Well she's entertaining, I'll give you that. Recipes an infuriating mix of clever and utterly unusable (in her 'Kitchen' book, she would have you use at least a litre of oil to roast potatoes hmm).

Loathe her arch smile and overworked descriptions - everything 'tumbling', 'glistening' in 'tangled heaps', but just can't keep away I'm afraid.

And I'm a professional chef - I really should know better blush

Nigella's Boobs did at least keep DH away from his beloved computer this evening.

I am friends with someone who has worked on production teams for Nigella's previous shows - apparently she's very cack-handed in the kitchen and has a hand double for most close up shots! So she's litey just a pretty face! smile

Spaceships Tue 02-Oct-12 00:36:17

Litey = literally, cheers iPad

PorkyandBess Tue 02-Oct-12 00:42:07

My sis was on the same LAX to London flight as her last week.

She said she looked gorgeous, was very slim and had very covetable luggage.

Elderflowergranita Tue 02-Oct-12 01:00:05

Good lord, a hand double for that cack-handedness!

Obviously hand method acting then.

justbogoffnow Tue 02-Oct-12 01:02:17

I've always thought she has such a lovely face, those big dark eyes, creamy skin, glossy dark hair envy.

SrirachaGirl Tue 02-Oct-12 01:09:32

I think she's great! I like that her cupboards and freezer are a bit sloppy and untidy and I think her writing is beautiful. What drives me nuts, however, is when she cooks something really messy or fiddly in a pristine white top or shock that goofy denim jacket. When I'm cooking it's sleeves-up, pinny-on or else I emerge from the kitchen splattered with sauce/icing/oil or whatever. Makes me twitchy.
