In this special extended interview, I talk to the awe-inspiring Nigella Lawson 20 years after her first cookbook, How to Eat, launched her career. Listen to this week’s episode and find out more about when the book was first conceived, what Nigella thinks of gastro porn and how she became an icon in modern food.
