Nigella Lawson is one of the UK's most influential food writers, with a growing international reputation and several bestselling books to her name as well as the television series, Nigella Bites.
Born in 1960, Nigella read Medieval and Modern Languages at Oxford and went on to pursue a successful career in journalism, becoming Deputy Literary Editor of The Sunday Times. This was followed by a successful freelance career writing for a range of publications, from The Guardian, Daily Telegraph and Times Magazine in the UK to Gourmet and Bon Appetit in the USA.
Nigella's love of cooking and food started at home, becoming part of her working life when she started the restaurant column in The Spectator and later wrote the food column for Vogue. Her first book, How To Eat: The pleasures and principles of good food was published to critical acclaim in 1998. It established Nigella's relaxed attitude to food and eating and won her a wide and dedicated audience.
How To Eat was the basis for Nigella's successful series, Nigella Bites. The second series was accompanied by a tie in book of the same name, which stayed in the bestseller lists for several months and helped to take her worldwide book sales past the 1.5 million mark.
In 2000 Nigella introduced a whole new generation to the art of baking with another bestseller, ironically titled, How To Be A Domestic Goddess: Baking and the art of comfort cooking. In 2001 Nigella was voted author of the year at the British Book Awards and her Nigella Bites Christmas Special was filmed that year.
In 1992 Nigella married fellow journalist and broadcaster John Diamond. John was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1997 and died in 2001. Nigella lives in London with their two children, Cosima and Bruno.
Autumn 2002 sees a new direction for Nigella with an exciting TV series and tie-in book, Forever Summer, full of recipes to prolong that lazy, warm summer feeling through the darker days of winter.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
