MasterChef Australia 2016 judge Nigella Lawson is not the “queen of food porn” for no reason. The 56-year-old celebrity chef makes her culinary masterpieces all the more delectable with flirtatious descriptions. In the May 22 broadcast of the show, she inflicted her charms on unsuspecting contestants.
The subject of her flirtation was 27-year-old MasterChef Australia 2016 contender Matt Sinclair. She told the Noosa barista, “I like a man in a flower T-shirt.” The Sydney native couldn’t help but blush at the compliment as he continued to work on his dish for the mystery box challenge, the Express UK reported.
It was hard for Sinclair to ignore the brunette bombshell, who was wearing a maroon dress and plunging neckline.
The ingredients for the mystery box was personally handpicked by Lawson, whom MasterChef judge Matt Preston called “a hero of mine” and “one of the greats in the cooking world.”
A number of contestants on MasterChef Australia 2016 were very eager to present their dishes to the renowned cook.
“I want flavours that are bold but not tricksy. I want food that is made to give pleasure, not to impress,” Lawson told the show’s 19 contestants.
This isn’t the first time that Nigella Lawson unleashed her feminine charms on television. In 2013, she playfully flirted with fellow judge Ludo Lefebvre on ABC’s The Taste. At one point on the show, Lawson leaned in and ruffled Lefbvre’s hair.
Lefebvre himself is a major fanboy of Lawson’s and he even expressed his affection for her through Twitter.
“Im going [to] say it again. I was so in LOVE with @Nigella_Lawson when I was younger, she still just so beautiful & nice @TheTasteABC #thetaste,” Lefebvre posted, as quoted by the Daily Mail. Nigella Lawson and Ludo Lefebvre were joined by Anthony Bourdain and Brian Malarkey on The Taste.
