Who doesn’t have a little bit of a crush on Nigella Lawson? I mean, it’s kind of hard not to. That long, dark hair. That cute accent. Oh, and the way she’s made domestic tasks appealing, tempting almost. Yes, I guess you could say that Nigella’s brought sexy back … into the kitchen.

She’s a busy girl, that Nigella. She’s launched various television shows, her own cookware collection and a growing assortment of highly popular cookbooks, all the while being mother to her two children. Her most recent book, Nigella Express (Knopf Canada, 2007, $50) is about cooking good food fast. “I call it real food,” she explains. “Not fast food. It’s not a book about showing you fast ways to cook foods that actually should be slow cooked. It’s a book that shows you how to cook flavourful, interesting meals in a pinch – with step-by-step instructions to make it easier.”
