VIEW­ERS DISH OUT ON NIGELLA

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS - By Deb­bie Schipp

BE­FORE it has even hit Aus­tralian screens, Nigella Law­son’s new­est cook­ing show has cre­ated quite a stir.

So much so that view­ers might be tun­ing in for the com­edy value as much as the recipes.

The feel­ing is the new show is more sim­ple than Sim­ply Nigella.

Early episodes of Sim­ply Nigella aired in the UK have seen the kitchen god­dess’s halo slip af­ter, in the first out­ing, she served up noth­ing more than av­o­cado on toast as a recipe.

Granted, Nigella did add a lit­tle lime, chilli flakes, dill, gin­ger and radishes be­fore mash­ing the whole lot and spread­ing it on bread, but that did not stop view­ers vent­ing on Twit­ter – seething that the recipe was too easy.

“I’m fully aware that av­o­cado toast isn’t a recipe, but it’s part of the fab­ric of my life,” Law­son says of the show.

Tweets in­clud­ing: “@Nigel­la_ Law­son spreads av­o­cado on bread and calls it a recipe! What’s on the next episode, but­ter on toast?” were just the tip of the “Avo­cado­gate” iceberg.

Granted, some view­ers did re­joice the recipe was easy to fol­low.

More re­cently, Law­son drew view­ers’ ire again with some claim­ing she pa­raded burnt let­tuce topped with a fried egg as her take on a Cae­sar salad. It seems her at­tempts to roast the leafy greens went up in smoke.
