I Am in Soromance with Nigella Lawson, Judge on The Taste
Nigella Lawson is, in my opinion, the best and most enjoyable celebrity foodie one can watch on television. There's just something humble and earthy and sweet about her, without being cloying. You get the feeling as you watch that you are seeing the real person, with very little polish put on for the cameras.
Now, she is joining the all-star celebrity judges panel of a new ABC program called, The Taste. If the naming concept seems familiar, a la The Voice, it's because the concept is similar. The judges have no idea who cooked the food or even what is in it. They just eat it and judge it purely on how it tastes.
"Although it was very thrilling to think of being up on a billboard in LA and around the States, I was very strict and English, and told them they weren't allowed to airbrush my tummy out. Wise? Hmmm. But that tum is the truth and is come by honestly, as my granny would have said."
