BBC Studios to produce cooking series and Christmas special

Nigella Lawson is returning to the BBC for the first time in three years with a six-part series and Christmas special.  

In BBC2’s Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat, the chef will make some of her favourite dishes included chocolate peanut butter cake, crab mac ‘n’ cheese and fish stew. 

She will share the rhythms and rituals of her kitchen and show how food is woven into our everyday lives. 

BBC Studios’ Bristol-based unscripted unit is producing the six-parter, which will be paired with a Christmas special later this year.  

Lawson last appeared on the BBC for BBC1’s Nigella: At My Table, which consolidated to 1.1m (16.8%) in a morning slot in late-2017. 

Lawson said: “More than just a mantra, ‘cook, eat, repeat’ is the story of my life.” 

The series was ordered by BBC2 channel controller Patrick Holland and popular factual and factual entertainment commissioning editor Catherine Catton. Commissioning editor is Ricky Cooper and the executive producer is Paolo Proto.  

The series is being distributed globally by Fremantle
