At least Nigella looks as if she eats the cake she makes

Have your say

If most of us ate cake as often as the BBC’s newest chef Lorraine Pascale bakes it, our obesity rates would be even higher than they are.

The woman is insatiable. She’s clearly on some sort of covert mission to make the rest of us pile on the pounds because her hand goes to the mound of full-fat grated cheese and the chunks of chocolate far too often.

And while viewers are often treated to a glimpse of her eating her goodies, the cameraman is more likely to be focusing on her pert backside or plumper companion.

It’s a bit like watching a thin Nigella Lawson in action. But give me voluptuous Nigella any day over this former model.

The old adage never trust a skinny cook has never looked so true.
