Quotes by and about Nigella Lawson

(Continued from her main entry on the site.)

[Asked what has been her best surprise:]
Lawson: "Is there such a thing as a good surprise? My mistrust of them could be construed as a form of control freakery."

Lawson: "Some people might cruelly describe me as a control freak."

The Guardian: "She has a great capacity for warmth, but ... there is something imperious and calculated about Nigella. The food, the home, the charm - they are all real and unreal. She puts on a terrific show of intimacy, designed to seduce."
