Nigella Lawson reveals the everyday household chore she will never do | The Sun

NIGELLA Lawson has revealed the everyday household chore she will never do.

The glamorous food writer, 63, has talked about her home life and told fans about one of pet peeves.

Despite being a domestic goddess, Nigella has revealed how she hates ironing.

She dislikes it so much, that the TV chef doesn't even own an ironing board, opting for a steamer instead.

Speaking to Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2, she revealed: "I steam, I don't iron.

"And as you can see, I'm not a particularly uncrumpled person in my natural state."

She added: "Also, I seem to have bits of cake batter on my sleeve."

Nigella also revealed that, apart from ironing, she also "hates wrapping Christmas presents".

She said: "It's just that I'm so incompetent that everything goes wrong. I always have bits of hair stuck under the Sellotape, it's a nightmare. 

"My late husband John always used to say I was the only person who could wrap up a book and make it look like it was a bottle of wine.'

It comes as Nigella revealed that we've all been eating mince pies wrong for years.

She claimed there is a surprising ingredient we should be pairing with not only mince pies, but Christmas cake too.

Speaking on BBC’s The One Show, host Jermaine Jenas took the opportunity to get Nigella’s advice on  festive food for December.

He said to Nigella: “At the top of the show we teased the fact that you say that Christmas cake, that everyone loves on Christmas Day, should be eaten with cheese.

“We were on board with it, our socials and inboxes have gone crazy in agreement with you.”

Nigella gushed about the unusual mix, saying: “Quite right.

“There is a bit of north-south divide, and even though I am a soft southerner, I am very much with the north on this.”

Jermaine agreed, saying: “It’s the way forward.”
