Nigella Lawson lets slip she has extra help in kitchen to create Cook, Eat, Repeat dishes

Nigella Lawson details recipe of sea salted chocolate cookies

Nigella Lawson’s Cook, Eat, Repeat causes controversy every time it airs on BBC Two. From her extravagant and elaborate descriptions of the ingredients she uses, or aromas and flavours produced, to the kitchen appliances she uses, Nigella’s appearances get viewers talking. But what those watching a home may not know is she has help when it comes to creating her dishes. 

The food writer and television chef was unable to join Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy live in their Sunday Brunch studio today. 

Instead, Channel 4 viewers saw her connect with them via a live video link from her home. 

The presenters wanted to talk to Nigella about the black forest brownie recipe she had given the show which Tim was going to attempt to cook later. 

And conversation soon turned to her latest show and how she and Simon share the same home economist.

“Your show has so many beautiful shots, does it take forever to make one of those meals?” Tim asked. 

“It does take a long time for filming,” Nigella said. 

“We had to be faster this year, as we started [filming] when we would normally finish. 

“I’ve got a great director and wonderful sound man, it’s a small crew but we’ve been working together for 20 years.” 

Nigella then went onto explain how she and Simon worked alongside Yasmin, a home economist, on both their shows. 

“I’m cooking it [the dish] in real time in my kitchen,” she said. “And she’s [Yasmin] is cooking out the back. 

“She’s cooked everything more times than you can believe possible.”

“Because you couldn’t join us today, I’m taking on cooking one of your recipes,” Tim said. “Is it easy?” 

“I don’t make recipes easy,” Nigella stated. “I make recipes easy because I’m not good at anything complicated. 

“I’m a home cook and I love flavour. I can’t do anything that requires dexterity, or expertise or evolved. 

“I am enormously clumsy!” She laughed off. 

Later in the show, Tim took to the kitchen and Simon asked the guest chef: “Do you want to guide Tim along?” 

“I have the instructions here!” The presenter commented and Nigella added: “It’s okay, he can do it, he’s got to take the stabilisers off!”  

“They’ve brought in special pans for you Nigella for Tim to use,” Simon noted and Nigella replied: “I knew Yas would have my back.” 

Tim experienced a few mishaps during the process of making the brownies and Simon reassured their guest: “Yas made you a brilliant finished one away, not that Tim isn’t doing good!” 

Nigella’s Cook, Eat Repeat airs Tuesday at 8pm on BBC Two and Sunday Brunch airs every Sunday at 9.30am on Channel 4.
