Nigella Lucy Lawson (born January 6, 1960) is an English food writer, journalist and broadcaster known for her popular cooking and lifestyle shows on British television which usually feature her in snug bust accentuating clothing. Many of the camera angles used on her program carefully focus on her torso and bosom, especially as she stirs, slices and chops in the kitchen. She was born into the upper class family of Nigel Lawson (now Baron Lawson of Blaby) a Conservative politician who was Chancellor of the Exchequer under Margaret Thatcher's cabinet.
Her mother was the late Vanessa Salmon, a socialite and member of the formerly influential family who co-owned the Lyons Corner House empire.
Nigella Lawson's first work was as a book reviewer and restaurant critic, she later became the deputy literary editor of The Sunday Times. She then embarked upon a career as a freelance journalist. In 1998, Lawson published her first cookery book, How to Eat, which sold 300,000 copies becoming a bestseller. Her second book in 2000, How to be a Domestic Goddess, won her the British Book Award for Author of The Year.
