“I need to be alone with my sandwich,” she purred towards the camera.
When preparing the queen of pudding, Nigella created a sponge base, before spreading some jam and adding the meringue topping.
Explaining her technique and smirking to the camera, she teased: “I’m going to spread it lightly and gently on top.”
She later prepared shoestring fries using a spiraliser, which she said she never used to make anything ‘masquerading as pasta’.
The seasoned television chef said: “I need to perform a little surgery on them. This needs a flat bottom, unattractive in a person but very necessary for this procedure.”
And when attaching the potato to the spiraliser she said she would ‘impale it’.
Her new series, Nigella: At My Table, sees the TV cook teaching viewers how to conjure up simple, relaxed food to be shared around the table between friends and family.
It returns for the second outing next Monday at 8:30pm on BBC Two.
