Life This Week 29/10/2018: I Want This.

Nigella Lawson will be returning to Australia early in 2019 with a stage show about her culinary life and I want tickets.  At this stage, there will be only one show in Sydney and it will be at the Opera House.

There's so much to love about Nigella.  Her voice, her prose, her cooking programs.  I have many happy memories of my pre mum life where my lazing on the sofa has been accompanied by a rerun of a Nigella series.  One of my favourite Nigella recipes is her take on Japanese Prawns for which she uses frozen (!!) prawns and wasabi.  Served on a bed of lettuce, it's the ultimate big bang for buck recipe that Nigella is famous for.

And there's also the way watching Nigella on TV makes me feel.  Happy, relaxed and ready to return to the real world once the end credits roll as Nigella 'returns' to her kitchen ion her dressing gown after filming to assemble sneaky snack from the leftovers of whatever she was making during the episode.

Plus there's the X factor of The Opera House as Nigella's venue.  The Opera House elicits this sense of anticipation and occasion within me every time I walk on its concourse or up its steps. 

Yes, I definitely have to keep my eye on the presales for Nigella's show.

What's on your want list at the moment?


  1. Sounds like it would be a really fun event! I hope you get tickets! :)

  2. Nigella is gorgeous and I love how she enjoys what she does and also how simple and delicious everything is that she makes. I hope you get your wish x

  3. I actually don't have anything on my wait list at the moment SSG but I do like Nigella! You have me thinking now of what I would like to see or do.

  4. I actually don't know if I've ever seen a show of hers!

  5. I could listen to Nigella all day - her voice and the way she describes things in such a rich way is almost hypnotising. Fingers crossed you can score tickets to see her in person!

  6. What a wonderful want! I used to watch her TV show even before her then husband died and the food, O.M.G. talk about "want".
    She has had a very troubled life though as a child and then being married to someone who abused her. Not the aforementioned husband.
    Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek. Next week's optional prompt is Share Your Snaps. Denyse

  7. We thought seriously about getting tickets to this for Miss 21 for her birthday or Christmas - she is a big fan of Nigella, and has loved watching cooking shows on TV ever since she was tiny (as well as cooking herself!). I'm just a bit concerned that as there will be no cooking involved, she may not be that interested. What do you think?
