Nigella Lawson says her favorite Australian food makes her ‘a traitor to her country’ because she prefers it over the UK version – and lists her ‘guilty pleasure’ snacks for when she doesn’t feel like cooking

Nigella Lawson is known for her luscious and luscious recipes.

But like everyone else, the cook has some guilty pleasures that she indulges in when she doesn’t feel like toiling over the stove.

The 61-year-old told this week’s release Stellar Magazine she dislikes things like pizza and chicken nuggets, and her deep fryer is not widely used.

Guilty! Nigella Lawson (pictured) told Stellar magazine this week that she has a controversial favorite Australian dish: the yeast extract, Vegemite

‘That’s not really my thing. Not out of snobbery, there is just so much delicious food you can eat without cooking, ‘she said.

‘Bread and cheese is always great. I can get a tub of taramasalata and love to dip blue corn chips in it. ‘

Nigella then told the magazine that she has a controversial favorite Australian food: the yeast extract, Vegemite.

Oh!  In fact, she prefers it to the British alternative, Marmite - a similar yeast paste that's more popular in the pond.  Pictured: Vegemite

After that, the cookbook author took to Twitter and answered dozens of fans explaining the joke, adding that she hopes the ‘brouhaha’ will now be over.

She explained the unusual intonation, saying she knows it isn’t, but it’s in fact a “ camp joke that’s become a habit. ”

Nigella added to another fan that part of her sense of humor is to ‘intentionally mispronounce things’ and even joked about calling Worcester ‘wusster-shusster’.
