Synopsis by Hal Erickson
On September 3, 2007, glamorous "domestic goddess" Nigella Lawson launched another of her popular food-prepartion series on Britain's BBC. In keeping with its title, Nigella Express demonstrated how to whip up delectable and attractive meals within minutes rather than hours. For those who entertained on the spur of the moment or while juggling a busy schedule, Nigella proved that "speed" and "quality" were not mutually exclusive terms, and while it might not always be possible to make great fast food, it is not only feasible but also inexpensive to make great food fast. In the United States, Nigella Express joined Food Network's weekly lineup on October 7, 2007.
