The London-born TV chef, 60, who’s been dubbed the Domestic Goddess, took to Instagram to reveal she’d been ‘hugging this secret project’ to herself for several months before she could finally share her efforts.
Alongside a short video showing her new book cover, Nigella penned: ‘Exciting news! I am thrilled to announce my new book, COOK EAT REPEAT, which is to be published this October.’

The book will be divided into sections – subtitled Ingredients, Recipes and Stories – and will feature narrative essays about food and stories from Nigella’s life in the kitchen.
She described it as ‘very close’ to her heart as she added: ‘It focuses on the rhymes and rituals of the kitchen, most particularly my kitchen.’
About her subtitle she joked: ‘Yes, I know that lovers of the Oxford comma might be a little perturbed here).’
The book will include more than 50 recipes and Nigella listed a few of her favourites, including Butternut Squash with a Chilli Ginger and Beetroot Yogurt Sauce and Rice Pudding Cake.

She married millionaire businessman Charles Saatchi in 2003, two years after the death of her first husband, journalist John Diamond, from cancer.
Her marriage to Saatchi ended in 2013, after photographs at Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair showed with his hand on her neck and repeatedly tweaking and twisting her nose, even putting a finger in one of her nostrils.
She now lives alone in a £5 million semi-detached home in Central London, after her daughter Cosima, 26, and son Bruno, 23, moved out.
