Cook, Eat, Repeat: Nigella Lawson back on BBC Two with new series


Nigella Lawson is to return to BBC Two with a brand new series.

Nigella will be back with Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat.

The BBC say it will see Nigella share the rhythms and rituals of her kitchen through a multitude of delicious new recipes that make the most of her favourite ingredients.

The channel tease: “Nigella gets to the heart of how food is woven into our everyday lives and the connection it provides.

“Along the way, she’ll offer up mouth-watering dishes that range from the indulgent Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, to the rich luxurious Crab Mac’n’Cheese, and the life-affirming Fear Free Fish Stew – all beautifully shot to bring a weekly serving of comfort and cheer into the nation’s lives.”

During the series, Nigella will spend time explaining where she finds inspiration for her recipes, from delving into her collection of vintage cookbooks to exchanges of ideas on social media.

“More than just a mantra, cook, eat, repeat is the story of my life,” said Nigella.

She continued: “It feels really lovely to be back. I’m lucky enough to work with a team I love, and have worked with forever. It feels really wonderful to be able to share my new recipes.

“Of course, for all of us, there was a bit of culture shock at first having been living and working remotely for so long suddenly finding ourselves on set, but after two days it felt like we had been doing it forever.”

Teasing the new series, Nigella added: “At its heart, it’s a celebration of the power of food to transform every single day: while Cook, Eat, Repeat re-dates the pandemic as a project, I think we all learnt over lockdown that thinking about what to eat, cooking it, sitting down to what we’ve cooked, really gave a focus to our lives that we were grateful for.

“But the series is also a passion project, delving into the ingredients I love, the recipes I always return to, and the pleasure of cooking and eating.”

Nigella: Cook, Eat, Repeat starts on Monday, November 9 at BBC Two.

In addition to the six-part series will be a one-hour Christmas Special, one of the highlights on the festive TV schedule. Nigella will indulge in a little tourism around her Christmas table with food from near and far to warm up the winter evenings and add sparkle to the seasonal special.
