Nigella Lawson was in Toronto on Friday promoting the paperback version of Feast and did a signing at the Indigo on Bloor Street...and I was there.
Of course that meant getting the okay from my most marvellous manager to change my hours so I could leave in time to get there. TFE even offered to accompany me--quite generous, given he wound up carrying my books and taking photos.
She was kind and gracious and just lovely to meet (and yes, more stunning in person than on TV). Fans lined up for hours to meet and speak with her. I could hear her give advice on food and cooking--all done with a smile. She patiently posed for photos. As she autographed my copies of How To Eat and Feast we chatted briefly about her writing process (which I think threw her...understandable since I think most of what she talked about was food-related) and imparted a bit of advice.
Such a happy girl am I.
