If your resolutions for 2023 involve being your best self in the kitchen, this year keeps bringing folks Australia's way who can definitely help. First, Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi made his way around the country on a speaking tour. In May, Britain's Marco Pierre White will do the same. And, that month as well, the one and only Nigella Lawson will enjoy her latest visit Down Under.

Dubbed An Evening with Nigella Lawson, this two-stop tour will see the television and cookbook favourite spend two nights chatting through her culinary secrets — and food in general, her life and career, and more. 2023 is proving an impressive year for famous names hitting Aussie stages to dive into their expertise and experience, in fact, given that everyone from Barack Obama to Mary Trump is also doing it.

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 two events — one in Melbourne, one in Sydney — 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.


Friday, May 19 — Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne
Sunday, May 21 — State Theatre, Sydney

Catch An Evening with Nigella Lawson in May 2023, with ticket pre-sales from Tuesday, March 7 and general sales from 12pm AEDT on Thursday, March 9 via the tour website.
