nigella 400x400This week on Savoring Sonoma: The Hour the conversation is with two well known and loved cookbook authors and passionate home cooks.

First, it’s one of the world’s best known and successful food writers, authors, tv presenters and cooking competition judges, the incomparable Nigella Lawson. We talk about her new book Cook, Eat, Repeat: Ingredients, Recipes and Stories in advance of her appearance here in Sonoma County at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts on November 16th, and a whole lot more.

We talk about her tastings and adventures from within the world of Walt Disney properties, histories, culinary traditions, and the people who have been making some of America’s favorite foods.

Savoring Sonoma: The Hour airs second and fourth Sundays at 6:00 pm on KRCB 104.9.


Nigella Lawson is coming to the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts on Wednesday, November 16th, at 7:30 PM!

Live in conversation with Clark Wolf, Nigella will explore how cooking is a personal, intuitive, and connecting process; how one meal idea leads to another; and how one ingredient can spawn a multitude of recipes. Whether asking,” What is a recipe?” or publishing her groundbreaking essay, “A Loving Defense of Brown Food,” Nigella’s wisdom about food and life comes to the fore.
