Nigella Lawson

A Taste of My Life, Series 3 Episode 2 of 5

Domestic goddess Nigella Lawson tells her life story through food, remembering how her mother was incredibly melancholic and not predisposed to having children. Nigella reveals how she shares her mother's capacity for hysteria, and how she felt apologetic and embarrassed about being a foody when compared to the political brains of her father and brother.

Her children Mimi and Bruno talk about how they find it strange watching their mum on television and prove that Nigella's brand of parenting has its advantages and drawbacks.

Nigel and Nigella go into the kitchen to recreate the Jam Roly Poly Pudding that Nigella used to cook for her mum, and Nigella eats a record number of profiteroles.
