Her cookbook may have been called "How To Be a Domestic Goddess," but international cookery queen Nigella Lawson is over the phrase so-often associated with her.
"Either you are a bitch who spends too long in the office and never sees your children, or you're some little throwback wanting to make things nice in the kitchen. And, of course, in real life women are both. Or neither. You have to find a way of integrating those two sides of yourself. Otherwise you go mad," said Nigella in an interview with The Radio Times and reported by the UK's Telegraph.
"You don't have to do the whole domestic goddess thing to revel in the solace of the hearth," she said. "If you want to put up fairy lights everywhere and then get pizza delivered, that's absolutely OK by me. I'd never say no to chips and curry sauce - I have very low tastes. Just that, a nice drink and some nice friends and I'd be happy."
So, chips and curry sauce instead of ham for Christmas this year, everyone?
