Nigella Lawson Front Page – Seductive Or Just Showing Joy For Food?

There is some controversy about this front page of Nigella Lawson who was this year seen on Masterchef Australia. The Huffington Post writes an interesting article about the debate this picture of Nigella dripping in caramel has sparked.

She is no stranger to creating huge publicity earlier this year she was photographed on Bondi Beach in a burkini.

Nigella is saying there is no double entendre. In fact she states “I’ve never done double entendre in my life, I’m not that kind of person,” she claims.

Well I think that was the only reason men were watching the show….

Anyway what do you think sexy or really just a celebration of food?

Thanks CG for sending me the link.

Reminds me when Bruno was channeling Milli Vanilli

Wow, if I had that coloured of spunk come from my junk, I would see a doctor very quickly.

Don’t the Japanese have a word for this sort of fetish?

Holy bukake Batman!

Yeah that’s it Chunks.
Burkini Bukake…
…cripes, what’s the world cumming to.

Caramel bukkake – a la Caramel Man.

Yuck – and I love Nigella. Not nice.

Where exactly is the double entendre in this shot??
Looks to be exactly what it seems.

So I’m calling it a single entendre. But maybe the folks at Stylist may probably think its ‘post-modern irony, man’.

Max Markson would call it correctly, I reckon, as “fucking great publicity, so what’s the problem? *winds down window and starts barking*”

I’d be surprised if Lindsay Lohan or even Snooki would agree to this type of shoot…well not without substantial $$$ and something less icky than caramel splashed on their face and hair.

Now if only Nigella would go vego, I think there’d be a huge chance PETA could convince her to strip for the cause, based on this latest foray into ‘food porn’.

Hey Boner, thanks for the “winds down window and starts barking”!! Brought a smile to the dial!

I love Nigella’s uniqueness –

10 Picnic { 12.20.11 at 11:16 am }

I just think it looks revolting – sticky and an awful colour

11 Mrs T { 12.20.11 at 12:35 pm }

I’m not entirely sure why this photo is controversial, the British are fairly conservative – that’s all I can come up with.
There is a sexy element here, she never wears heaving make up on her show and I’m guessing a lot of her male fans’ imaginations are working OT.

12 Culinary Boner { 12.20.11 at 2:12 pm }

Mrs T, it’s because the shot is a directly reminiscent of a particularly messy Japanese genre of porn called bukkake, as the people who arranged the shoot and took the pic no doubt were well aware.
The conceptual leap here is as follows:
*Scene – Stylist ‘creative’ room. Editorial meeting
Alistair: “Hey Shaz, any ideas on the front cover for the Nigella special?”
Sharon:”Well, what about we play on the whole food porn thing. We could have Nigella lick her fingers.”
Alistair: “Nah. She does that all the time on tele. Good line of a thinkin’ though. We just need s’thing a bit more out there.”
Oliver, the work experience graduate whose only there to take the minutes and get the coffee order: “Wot about somethin’ like this?” Alistair’s annual subscription to Bukkake Babes dot com has finally found a legitimate use, as he proudly displays a photo that would normally get him sacked on his Ipad.
Alistair and Sharon, simultaneously: “Wicked! Just what need!”
Alistair ponders: “But what will we use for the jizz?”
“Oh. And no one, and I mean no one, talk about this idea in front of Nigella….or it’s ya balls that’ll be decorating the tree this Christmas”.

But back to more important – and less unsavoury*- matters like yesterday’s unexpected death of the ‘great leader’ and the coming nuclear holocaust –

* a direct reference to Nigella’s misuse of perfectly good caramel… unsavoury… get it… BOOM BOOM

14 Culinary Boner { 12.20.11 at 2:46 pm }

Just another reminder of what the world lost yesterday. The ‘great leader’ and his nation GET ON THE ONE:

15 brain dead dave { 12.20.11 at 3:42 pm }

From the photo, it looks like Nigella’s been in deep $hit.

16 Mrs T { 12.21.11 at 9:46 am }

Thanks for clearing that up, I’m as clueless as Nigella!

17 Georgie { 12.21.11 at 10:19 am }

Personally I find the photo very suggestive.

I was watching tele last night and the thought of Nigella’s dripping image crept into my mind so I got up and made a bowl of ice-cream with caramel sauce.

18 Culinary Boner { 12.21.11 at 11:24 am }

Georgie, Michelle Bridges will be livid.

The pic suggested to me that I need to buy some boxes of Kleenex.

19 Georgie { 12.21.11 at 11:34 am }

CB – the possible suggestions are influenced by the moment and when you’ve got the munchies there’s nothing else for it. Besides, Big Dog had gone to bed.

20 Culinary Boner { 12.21.11 at 3:23 pm }

The fact that I am back in on this topic is clearly a worry. Has Nigella’s obsession become MY obsession? Can we start a cult that involves caramel bukkake fetish? Will Altiyan’s acolytes join, or will a cult that worships a raven-haired, thunder-arsed, culinary seductress (who also likes to have her face glazed like a Krispy Kreme) prove to intellectual for them? Will Nigella eventually get arrested for possession of 15kilos of crack?*

Anyway, it was Raver’s (hopefully tongue in cheek) question of “…what do think sexy…?” in relation to this cover that brought to mind one of my favourite movies of all time, ‘Spinal Tap’…

Ian Faith: They’re not gonna release the album… because they have decided that the cover is sexist.
Nigel Tufnel: Well, so what? What’s wrong with bein’ sexy? I mean there’s no…
Ian Faith: Sex-IST!
David St. Hubbins: IST!
Bobbi Flekman: You put a greased naked woman on all fours with a dog collar around her neck, and a leash, and a man’s arm extended out up to here, holding onto the leash, and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it. You don’t find that offensive? You don’t find that sexist?
Ian Faith: This is 1982, Bobbi, c’mon!
Bobbi Flekman: That’s right, it’s 1982! Get out of the ’60s. We don’t have this mentality anymore.
Ian Faith: Well, you should have seen the cover they wanted to do! …It wasn’t a glove, believe me!

* Apologies to Maggie Tabberer for recycling the very old – and lame – joke that she was once the famous subject of.

For Nigella from Nigel and gang, you sexy woman you –
