She’s back in Australia to attend the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival.
And Nigella Lawson oozed sophistication for an event at Treasury Gardens on Friday.
The culinary goddess, 62, looked remarkably youthful in a chic white pantsuit that flattered her curves as she mingled with guests at the idyllic outdoor setting.

Nigella boosted her height with espadrille heels and accessorised further with delicate gold jewellery.
Her shoulder-length brunette locks were styled in loose waves, and her makeup was elegant, consisting of defined brows, lashings of mascara and a glossy nude lipstick.
The beloved home cook appeared in great spirits as she wandered through the gardens, and was spotted hamming it up for the cameras with her former MasterChef Australia co-star Matt Preston.

The sighting comes after Nigella appeared on The Project on Tuesday evening.
During an interview on the show, she revealed that there are a number of words she pronounces incorrectly for fun, after she sparked controversy for how she says ‘microwave’.

The cook baffled fans with her pronunciation of microwave as ‘meecro-wah-vey’ in an episode of her BBC2 cooking show Cook, Eat, Repeat back in 2020.
The London-born domestic goddess said that’s not her only quirk.
‘I have other words I use. You know how all families speak in nonsense words? So, you know, I use “desecrated coconut”,’ she admitted.

‘If I get some new appliance I have to read the “destructions”. If I’m going somewhere I will have to text someone to say I’m “en croûte” you know?’ she added.
‘It’s just a joke, mispronouncing words. And what’s quite interesting is I found out afterwards – I mean all families have those words in a way.’
Nigella also confessed to enjoying a kebab after a late night on the town.

‘I rather like the chip kebab. So one of my favourites is flatbread, hummus, a bit of lemon zest, some salt, some chips and wrap them up. So wonderful,’ she said.
While knocking up rich mashed potatoes with butter during a 2020 episode of Cook, Eat, Repeat, Nigella explained to fans, ‘I still need a bit of milk – full fat – which I’ve warmed in the meecro-wah-vey.’
In a series of Twitter posts afterwards, the cookbook author was forced to reply to dozens of fans explaining the microwave joke, adding she hoped that the ‘brouhaha’ would be over.

Nigella insisted it’s part of her sense of humour to ‘deliberately pronounce things wrong’ and even joked she says Worcester as ‘wusster-shusster’.
Hoping to put an end to the discourse, Nigella tweeted: ‘Well, I do say it like that, but not because I think that’s how it’s actually pronounced’.
She then quote tweeted herself and added: ‘Can this be the end of it now?’
Laughs: It comes after Nigella appeared on The Project on Tuesday evening. During an interview on the show, she revealed that there are a number of words she pronounces incorrectly for fun, after she sparked controversy for how she says ‘microwave’
