Sri Lanka hails the arrival of UK ‘domestic goddess’ and renowned ‘foodie’s foodie’ Nigella Lawson!


Dust off your bib and tucker, because the UK’s self-styled ‘domestic goddess’ and prolific food writer and tele-celebrity Nigella Lawson is coming to Sri Lanka!

As the Sunday Times reports, “the award-winning British food writer, broadcaster, journalist and well-loved television personality will be in Sri Lanka for a series of exclusive events from June 21–23, hosted by Cinnamon Life”.

After touring “she makes her formal public appearances for high tea, a book signing, a brunch, a cocktail and a black box challenge”.


Nigella, daughter of former heavyweight UK government minister Nigel Lawson and ex-wife of advertising agency supremo and art collector Charles Saatchi, is a renowned ‘foodie’s foodie’.

Says Cinnamon’s Roshanie Jayasundera-Moraes: “Everyone loves good food, and we are happy to be at the forefront of this fascination and present Sri Lanka with new and celebrated gastronomical experiences.

“The event featuring Nigella Lawson is yet another stepping stone, paving the way to the hub for gastronomy which Colombo will soon become.”


In 1998, her first cookery book, ‘How to Eat’, became an instant best-seller. Her second book in 2000, ‘How to Be a Domestic Goddess’, won her the British Book Award for Author of the Year.

In 1999 she presented her own cooking show series on Channel 4, accompanied by another best-selling cookbook ‘Nigella Bites’, which brought her a Guild of Food Writers Award.

She hosted the Food Network’s Nigella Feasts in the United States in 2006, followed by a three-part BBC Two series, Nigella’s Christmas Kitchen in the UK, which led to the commissioning of Nigella Express on BBC Two in 2007.
