The Judd household has become a little spicy. Apples meeting cinnamon, wine mulled and the house smelling like a spice rack.

So, having made two-and-a-half Christmas puddings – from an old family recipe – I turned my attention to winter soup. And who should have a recipe for spicy butternut squash and sweet potato? Why, Nigella of course.

It tasted horrible. I wanted to like it because I wanted to describe how Nigella’s personal life didn’t affect her recipes and we should all stop wondering if what she puts up her nose also goes into her food.

The Lawson/Saatchi drug use revelations may have been aired like dirty laundry, but I will still keep cooking Nigella’s recipes regardless of how ghastly the soup was.
