Nigella Lawson queen of food porn and otherwise

Nigella Lawson and her food

Nigella Lawson, the most popular female British chef, has shown neighbors a never before seen side of her. It seems that when Nigella renovated her home, there's now a clear view inside her bathroom where passerby can get a glimpse of her more private life.

If you're a fan of the Food Network then you've undoubtedly heard of Nigella Lawson. She stars in a series called Nigella Feasts and is one of the world's most influential cooks and food writers.

But there's a side of Nigella that no one has seen until lately and it's the one side she wants to keep hidden.

According to the UK's Daily Mail newspaper, Nigella and her husband, advertising mogul and co-owner of Saatchi & Saatchi, Charles Saatchi, have spent oodles of cash converting a former warehouse into a seven-bedroom mansion. But it seems they forgot one important detail.

Their new home includes a to-die-for loggia, a gallery that is open to the elements on an upper floor. Beyond the loggia is a bathroom. Whoopsie! When she uses the facilities to shower or otherwise, you can see Ms. Lawson in all her buxom glory, the Mail reports.

Said an observer to the Mail, "It isn't a case of deliberately looking in, but there is a view into the bathroom and anyone glancing in the direction of the loggia from nearby can glimpse what's going on."

Whoops again!

Nigella's ultra-feminine presence in the kitchen has given her the nickname, "Queen of food porn". Although she is not classically trained as a chef, she has nonetheless sold more than 3 million cookbooks worldwide. She recently filmed Australian Masterchef 2011 and she just completed another successful season of Nigella's Kitchen for the BBC2.

Lawson comes from a very well-known British family. Her father, Nigel Lawson, is the Conservative Chancellor and her mother, Vanessa Salmon, a socialite and heiress to the Lyons Corner House empire. Lawson began her career in food writing with a restaurant column for London's Spectator and within a year, became the deputy literary editor of The Sunday Times. She followed her passion for food on the advice of her late husband, John Diamond, who lent his support and confidence to Lawson as she penned her first cookbook, How to Eat.
