Education can be quite tasty, as proven by the lovely Ms. Nigella Lucy Lawson, who was born in London, England, on January 6, 1960. She combines her great love of teaching others about food and a keen mind for writing, and out comes a delicious collection of recipes and various cooking tips. At the start, things seemed a bit rocky for the young daughter of Nigel Lawson, one of the most prominent politicians in Margaret Thatcher's government. She had to change schools multiple times from the ages of 8-18, due in part to her disruptive and rude behavior. As she matured and became more focused in life, things settled down and she attended Lady Margaret Hall College at Oxford University, earning a degree in medieval and modern languages. It appears that the school of hard knocks was a difficult, but good way to prepare the beautiful Nigella down a long, hard road watching beloved family members loose the fight to cancer. Her mother passed away at age 48, Nigella's sister, Thomasina, passed away in 1993, and finally, Nigella's first husband, and fellow writer, succumbed to throat cancer after a four year battle. From there she dove into the publishing world and wrote free-lance for several highly acclaimed publications. Before long she turned it on herself, and wrote one cook book after another, signing deals for cooking shows to accompany her books. Intelligent, beautiful and inventive, the creative Ms. Lawson will be whipping up exotic meals for us all, for many years to come.
