BBC Announces Special Seasonal Version Of Simply Nigella


According to the BBC, Nigella Lawson has a special ‘Simply Nigella program’ coming up in December. The actual date is given as Monday 14 December but no time specified as yet.

I can’t bring myself to say what the special is for, were’re still in November! Surely it’s too early. I really can’t say the word, just read below for more information…

In this hour-long special, Nigella shares her fool-proof guide to stress-free festive cooking and easy entertaining – with a line-up of celebratory dishes which are both indulgent and practical.
Inspired by the sparkling Christmas lights in Kansas City USA, Nigella shows us how to have our most relaxed, most spectacular Christmas yet. She’ll introduce us to the local, home-spun food that has inspired some of this year’s favourite festive recipes, adding a British twist back in her kitchen.

Her oh-so-slow cooked black treacle ham replaces the traditional turkey as the party centre piece, paired with a refreshingly bright medley of sweet and sour vegetable slaw.

Nigella treats her guests to not one, but three sumptuous cakes to tuck in to. Her trio of bundt cakes begins with a delicately flavoured cider and five spice sponge, topped with an indulgent salted caramel sauce, followed by a delicious lemon and thyme version and ending with a pumpkin bundt, adorned with an aromatic orange icing.

Other sweet treats include Nigella’s make-ahead triple chocolate buckwheat cookies. And for those cold wintery nights, Nigella whisks up a gloriously green spiced parsnip and spinach soup. Enjoying the leftover ham, Nigella creates her stir-fried rice with double sprouts, chilli and pineapple, topped with a fried egg.
