Nigella Lawson’s outrageously nasty innuendos had viewers’screaming’ during her new Christmas show.
The 63-year-old TV chef visited Amsterdam during the holiday season to visit her favourite spots before picking up specific ingredients to cook traditional meals.
But, as usual, her sexy presenting manner and sly quips diverted many viewers.
Nigella claimed she had some macadamias ready to go in her ‘nut-bashing bag’ when she made her No-Bake Advocaat and Ginger Cake.
Simply putting the nuts into a zip-lock bag, Nigella took a rolling pin and started smashing the nuts as she said: ‘Bash, bash, very useful!’
Not missing her chance, she looked up at the camera, smiled, and declared: ‘We all need an outlet for Christmas.’
People at home were naturally engrossed.
‘“I have some macadamias in my nut bashing bag” – I am screaming. Go on Nigella,’ one person posted on X.
‘And the double entendres continue lol,’ someone else shared.
Another added: ‘My husband and son are enjoying naughty Nigella especially with her nut bashing bag.’
At different points in the special, fans went wild with other comments, including when Nigella insisted on visiting a sweet shop because ‘my liquorice box needs a restock’.
‘The toolbox full of liquorice has fully sent me over the edge, I can’t stop laughing,’ someone explained.
Nigella’s blanket bars (almond paste coated in puff pastry) required some more effort after coming out of the oven, which was an eye-opening experience for some.
‘You’ll see that some of the paste has popped out, but you can just press it back in,’ she advised.
‘WOAAHHHH there she goes!’ someone posted.
Ahead of the special hitting screens, Nigella explained how her unique descriptions come from ‘fear filling the silence’.
‘I think often in cooking, metaphor is a better conveyor of taste and texture, which in a way, are not that easily pinpointed in concrete words – because it’s an atmosphere, or the connotations a particular taste might have,’ she told The Independent.
‘But as you can tell, I just waffle on until someone stops me.’
However, her statements occasionally catch her off surprise.
‘I don’t have a script, so when Dom Cyriax, my director, says action, I just start blabbering. I have an idea of certain things I need to say in terms of the cooking, but I’m not always sure beyond that.
‘Sometimes I think, “why did that come out? Why did that happen?”. But it does.’
Nigella’s Amsterdam Christmas is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
