TASTE BUDS AT BOILING POINT - MAR 26 - 7.24PM
Sensual… that’s probably the most accurate description of the woman in the dark velvet dress with flowing dark locks and oh-so-husky purr.
Nigella Lawson is, pretty much to any man alive, the foie gras-cum-fillet-steak-cum-oysters-cum-KFC Zinger meal of culinary playfulness. And there she was, in the flesh, in front of me, on stage, gasping, cooing and radiating about as much electricity as the National Grid is forced to generate at lunchtime on Christmas Day.
Having said that there were also moments when she spoke that were so razor sharp, so paper-cut stinging, that it might make you think twice before challenging her over a jus.
In conversation with Italian domestic goddess, Anna Del Conte, both delivered spades in style and va-va-voom to a love-struck audience.
And to finish? Ms Del Conte delivering a deliciously risqué put-down of everyone’s favourite dinner table guest - Donald Trump.
What more could you ask for?
