Nigella Lawson's Chefography

Of all the chefs being profiled this week on the Food Network, I was most anxious to catch Nigella Lawson's biography on the small screen.  Last night, I did just that.  I had read her synopsis on FoodNetwork.com, and thought that I just needed to know more.  Of all the chefs profiled, she was the newest to the Food Network family and I, therefore knew the least about her.  I think everyone should know a little about this domestic goddess.  She faced overwhelming tragedies and still managed to become one of the spunkiest, sexiest, chefs on TV today.

Nigella had to face the painful deaths of not only her mother and sister due to cancer, but she lost her husband, John, as well, to the tragic disease.  It was heart wrenching and awe-inspiring to watch her become a powerhouse in the television cooking field, all while slowly losing her husband leaving her to raise two small children on her own.  The whole time I was watching the chefography, I fell in love with her all over again.  Even in the face of death and disease, she celebrated life and the time that she had on this planet with her family.  She cherished things that many of us take for granted.  Perhaps this is why she translates so well on film.  Her passion for life shows through in her cooking and zest for food. 

She never wants anyone to feel sorry for her or treat her like some wounded bird.  For all of you who are crying right now about her sad life, take comfort in knowing she found new love and is continuing to live each day to the fullest.  She still counts her blessings and feels that she is one of the luckiest women in the world.

If you'd like to catch Nigella's chefography on the Food Network, it airs again March 21at 8pm and March 25th @ 3pm.
