You don’t get many of those to the pound

After Sophie Dahl’s disastrous BBC cookery show earlier this year, it looks like Queen of Gastroporn Nigella Lawson has been called in to save the day. The voluptuous star has been spotted filming her new food show at a grocery shop in St John’s Wood, London. With a basket in hand, filled with vegetables, the 50-year-old brunette looked immaculate and curvy as ever in a flowing black dress, blue top and jacket.

Her new book “Kitchen: Recipes from the Heart of the Home” will be published on 2 September 2010.

Nigella posted a message on her site saying: “Now I’m filming the TV series [to accompany her new book] and having a lot of fun, but it does rather keep me away from my computer and this site. As ever, my book took rather longer than it should have, partly because I did the App in the middle of it, and partly because I kept adding recipes and rejigging things. So, for the past couple of months, I’ve pretty well been shut in my study, slaving over a hot computer. But now the book – a whopping 500 pages of it – is finished and will be out at the beginning of September.
