Fans have been charmed by her ability to turn a simple dinner something special and many people appreciate her particularly ‘un-chef’ like behaviour as she ignores the fancy techniques other celebrity chefs use for homely dishes everyone can make themselves.
“I don’t like formality. I don’t think you should pretend that your home is a restaurant”. Amen! @Nigella_Lawson #businesschicks Hundreds of women at the event were thrilled to see Nigella on stage and interacting with the audience as she offered words of wisdom learned over her many years in the kitchen and throughout her life. — Margie Warrell (@margiewarrell) January 18, 2016

Nigella is famous for her mid-night snacking scene that runs at the end of most of her TV episodes when the charming cook head to the fridge for a late-night snack. While she’s always been an advocate for enjoying the odd sweet treat, she made it clear that she lives by the rule of “everything in moderation”. She told fans the most important thing is finding the right balance, being good to your body by eating healthy, nourishing food and making sure you indulge in the odd treat every now and again. She was also quick to point out how impressed she was with the quality and abundance of fresh food in Australia.
Excited fans snapped photos of the ‘Queen of the Kitchen’ at the event.
She finished the event by telling the audience she was grateful to have found her love of cooking and to be able to share that love with other people around the world.
”If we’re lucky, we’ll all find an output for creativity – cooking is mine” @Nigella_Lawson #businesschicks — Business Chicks Au (@businesschicks) January 18, 2016
