Nigella Sound Bites

Hello, I’m Nigella Lawson and these are my Seasonal Sound Bites. Three podcasts in celebration of festive cooking, produced in collaboration with my publishers, Vintage. I make no secret of the fact that Christmas is my favourite time of year. As I’ve often said, I wallow in it and relish it. Here, I talk through the before, during, and after of my Christmas; the nation’s classics, the alternative recipes, and those dishes I return to year after year. I want you to feel that I’m there with you, in the kitchen, as you cook. My books are the conversations we might be having, and these podcasts are an extension of that.

Nigella Summer - what I'm cooking right now

In the last of my summer podcasts I talk about the food I'm cooking right now, what food really means to me, how I hope you all feel when you get in the kitchen and how I decide which recipes to include in my books. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Nigella Summer - an indoor picnic for the British summer

What could be more appropriate to the climate I live in than an indoor picnic? Much as I enjoy cooking, when I have friends over I don’t always want to make a meal of it. I’m not looking to cut corners, but the opposite: I want everyone to laze expansively - a freeform fiesta - greedily grazing from bits and bites covering the kitchen table.

Nigella ep. 3 - Puddings and the perfect way to use

In the final episode of this series I'm talking about the food that comes after the Christmas Day lunch; from puddings, both traditional and non-conformist, to the cold cuts of Boxing Day. It seems almost unimagninable that we find space for more food after such a feast but somehow we always do. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Nigella ep. 2 - How to cook the perfect Christmas lunch

Today I'm starting with the centrepiece, or at least my Christmas Day centrepiece: my spiced and super-juicy roast turkey. I know I've done a lot of shouting andd jumping up and down about my way of making sure that your turkey is sure-fire succulent but I don't think I can rest until I have converted every last person. I'll also talk about the perfect roast potatoes, side-dishes I return to every year, and festive drinks to enjoy with your meal. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
