Nigella’s love affair with Aussie home cooking

Nigella Lawson has travelled the world and dined in Michelin-starred restaurants, but MKR’s queen of the kitchen reveals home cooking is her one true love. 

“For me, the story of food is the story of home cooking. Home cooking is where the heart is. That’s the food that makes us feel safe, that’s the food that makes us happy,” shares Nigella, adding the only rule in her kitchen is that it must taste good! 

The celebrated author and home cook also has a special place in her heart for Australian home cooking: “I’m in Australia because Australian cooking is like the Australian character; full of life, unpretentious, fresh and direct, and I love that!”

Nigella will travel around Australia with returning host and judge Manu Feildel to dine in the homes of passionate home cooks competing for the title of MKR Champion.

Also joining MKR this season is award-winning food journalist and TV personality Matt Preston, while celebrity chefs Colin Fassnidge and Curtis Stone return as guest judges.

Australia’s favourite cooking show, MKR, returns soon to Channel 7 and 7plus. Which team will be crowned Australia’s best home cooks? 

MKR is produced by ITV Studios Australia for the Seven Network.
