AIRDATE: Monday 2 November 2015 at 8.30pm on BBC Two

Episode 1 (of 6)

Relaxed, inspiring and as mouth-watering as ever, Nigella Lawson’s latest series shows us that what – and how – we cook can make us feel better and more alive.

Packed with new recipes and tips designed to make our lives easier, Nigella proves that whatever the occasion, food, in the eating and the making, should always be pleasurable.

From energy-boosting breakfasts and satisfyingly simple suppers, to fuss-free ideas for feeding a crowd and ‘bowl food’ to nourish and uplift, every episode is full of irresistibly easy recipes to help create some breathing space after a busy working day, or unwind with friends and family at the weekend.

In this first episode, Nigella introduces us to recipes that are quick and calm. There’s Nigella’s favourite breakfast – a twist on avocado toast, with radishes; a deliciously different Thai noodle dish with cinnamon and prawns that was inspired by a recent holiday to Thailand; and a laid-back family supper of luscious lamb ribs with Nigella sativa (black cumin seeds), served with a speedy feta and avocado salad.

To help the wind down at the end of a hectic day, there’s some stove-side pottering with Nigella’s warm spiced cauliflower and chickpea salad. And a sweet treat comes in the form of a beautifully simple apricot almond cake.
