If your resolutions for any new year involve being your best self in the kitchen, here's one way to help achieve it in 2024: with the one and only Nigella Lawson enjoying her latest visit Down Under to hit up three cities that she didn't make it to when she last was here in May 2023.

Dubbed An Evening with Nigella Lawson, this three-stop second leg of the tour will see the television and cookbook favourite spend three nights chatting through her culinary secrets — and food in general, her life and career, and more.

"Food, for me, is a constant pleasure. I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning and beauty... food is the story of my life," Lawson said about the tour, in a glimpse of where the conversation might head.

If you're the kind of person who starts plotting your next meal before you've even finished the last, or loves eating more than anything else, Lawson's visit will help get right to the guts of your food obsession. And, the three events — one each in Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane — will also feature a Q&A component so that you can ask Lawson whatever you've always wanted to yourself.

Even when she isn't answering audience questions, Lawson will have plenty to cover — she has a hefty pile of cookbooks to her name, starting with 1998's How to Eat: Pleasures and Principles of Good Food and including 2020's Nigella's Cook, Eat, Repeat.

When she hasn't been filling our bookshelves with recipes, she's been whipping through them on TV, too, on everything from Nigella Bites, Nigella Feasts, Nigella Kitchen and Nigellissima through to Simply Nigella and Nigella: At My Table. And, she's been popping up on Top Chef, MasterChef Australia and My Kitchen Rules as well.
