The day of the 6ft spaghetti


I feel both excited and very proud looking at our fabulous November cover. I keep telling people “I made that pasta curtain you know… by hand!” 
And there is Nigella, the domestic goddess herself, leaning against it! 

Can you imagine anything more nerve-racking? I was in the middle of rolling out fresh pasta for the shoot, trying to make 6ft long spaghetti, teeth gritted and covered in flour, when in walks Nigella, looking amazing in tracksuit bottoms and a t shirt. "Hello", she says, "great pasta". 

Those two little words made it all worth the effort. And if any of you are ever in need of a giant spaghetti curtain…. I’m the girl to ask!

  1. No, we didn't eat it - we decided it had been manhandled a bit too much - and, more to the point, there was no hob at the studio. An issue if you're trying to cook pasta...
