Nigella Lawson wants breakfast in bed? Of course she does...
In case you were still on the fence about whether everything about Nigella Lawson equates to soft-core porn, last night's Top Chef: Las Vegas will likely settle any questions. We don't even have to resort to the fantasies inspired by the artfully mussed and bleary Nigella and Padma ordering breakfast in bed for the episode's quick-fire challenge. All we have to do is take her at her word. In critiquing Robin's not so successful panna cotta, she explained that it should "have the quiver of a 17th-century courtesan's inner thigh."

It's lovely and brilliantly descriptive, I know, and yet so... brilliantly descriptive.

Also, take this poll.

wasn't that a lovely description?

Yes, though it did make me feel a little dirty.

I especially liked their mussed look during the judging of that Quickfire. Heh.

The only thing that could have made that more obvious would have been bits of clothing tossed about the room.

No kidding. I'm, um, appalled. Yeah. Appalled. Deeply.

Don't mistake my meaning. I don't think there's anything particularly ground-breaking or shocking about conflating food with sex or sensuality. What I find interesting are her protests to the contrary in spite of stopping just short of tossing sashimi at the camera and saying, "Remind you of anything, sailor?" in her presentation.

Ya. And how they very carefully showed Padme on one side of a bed, all tousled, and then Nigella on the other side of a bed, all tousled, and didn't show them in the same shot (and thus reveal that they were in separate beds) until quite a bit later. Very silly.

Meg and I both thought they missed a brilliant opportunity by not showing them in a big king-size bed.

That's only on the Director's Cut DVD.

She makes me quiver like panna cotta.
