Performing Arts Houston Presents An Evening with Nigella Lawson
Performing Arts Houston welcomes British TV cook and cookbook author Nigella Lawson for a discussion with Houston Public Media’s Ernie Manouse on November 27, 2022, at 6:30 pm in the Cullen Theater, Wortham Center.
Now a household name, Lawson will discuss the joys of her career as a cook and TV star, and her approach to writing her beloved cookbooks.
Based in London, Lawson got her start in cookbook authorship after a successful career as the Deputy Literary Editor of The Sunday Times and as a critic and op-ed columnist for a range of publications, including The Times, London and The Guardian.
In 1998 she published her first cookbook, How To Eat, The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food. She now has twelve bestselling books to her name, including her latest, Cook, Eat, Repeat: Ingredients, Recipes, and Stories. Her books have sold over 12 million copies worldwide.
Her first TV series, Nigella Bites aired in 2000, followed by a string of successful series broadcast in the UK, USA, Australia and beyond.
Alongside Anthony Bourdain, Lawson was a judge on the three seasons of The Taste which broadcast in the UK and US in 2013 and 2014 and has made several appearances on MasterChef Australia. She was voted author of the year at the 2001 British Book Awards (Nibbies), and Best Food Personality 2014 at the Observer Food Monthly Awards.
