Nigella Lawson is back with a brand new series packed with simple recipes full of complex flavor. Nigella: At My Table shows us food we can all bring to our own tables, vibrant and varied but always relaxed. In the first episode, Nigella shares new discoveries like her Turkish-inspired eggs, as well as old-fashioned favorites including the aptly named Queen of Puddings. For a relaxed get together around the table, Nigella rustles up a gloriously simple chicken and pea traybake. For times of urgent need, there are her emergency brownies, and she finds a new use for a spiralizer.
Nigella Lawson serves up five more irresistibly easy dishes, recipes which combine the comfort of the familiar and the exuberance of the new. Nigella rustles up her favorite weekend breakfast special, wonderfully light sure-fire-success waffles. She shares her go-to recipes for laidback entertaining: beef and aubergine fatteh, accompanied by bulgur wheat with flaked almonds and nigella seeds. That's followed by her passionfruit ice cream cake, which is a dream to eat and a doddle to make. And late night inspiration comes in the form of a toasted brie, Parma ham and fig sandwich.
Treats are in store as Nigella rustles up some of her favorite dishes to share around the table. For a lunch with friends, Nigella's herbed leg of lamb is relaxingly simple to prepare, served with garlicky roast potatoes with oregano and feta. That's followed by her voluptuously soft and rich chocolate olive oil mousse. For a delicious snack that's unbelievably moreish, there's Nigella's coconut shrimp with turmeric yogurt - hot crisp prawns with a cool smooth dipping sauce. And her ginger and walnut carrot cake never fails to win over friends and family.
There's another serving of irresistible dishes, as Nigella shares some of her go to favorites. For the perfect start to the day, there's a breakfast inspired by her university days, fried bread and tomato hash. A speedy meal comes in the form of a simple and tasty pasta dish with anchovies, tomatoes and mascarpone. Nigella's friends are treated to a vegan feast, with a rambunctiously vibrant butternut and sweet potato curry served with her coriander and jalapeno salsa. That's followed by a moreish lemon tendercake served with blueberry compote, which was inspired by a trip to Kansas City.
Nigella shares ideas for feasts throughout the day. Nigella's savory take on French toast is an ideal choice for weekend brunch or a comforting and quick supper. With friends to entertain, Nigella rustles up an informal Mediterranean dish for dinner, juicy spiced lamb kofta with garlic sauce. For pudding her guests are treated to a delicately tasting rose and pepper Pavlova with strawberries, inspired by her grandfather's penchant for strawberries with a grinding of pepper. There's also an aromatic golden egg curry and a delicious white chocolate.
Nigella cooks more warming, comforting and inspirational recipes. Perfect for winding down at the end of a long day, there's a cozy supper of chicken with red grapes and Marsala, followed by a deeply divine sunken chocolate amaretto cake, with crumbled amaretti cream dolloped alongside. For a dish that's as simple to make as it is rewarding to eat, there's Nigella's mussels with pasta, and just as delicious is her autumnal radicchio, chestnut and blue cheese salad. Her egg tortilla pie with a crisp crust, soft yoked eggs, salty ham and melted cheese is a pleasure to behold.
