Nigella Lawson Responds To Cook, Eat, Repeat 'Microwave' Pronunciation Scandal

Nigella Lawson caused quite a stir earlier this week when she said the word 'microwave' a little....errr.. strangely.

During her cooking show, Cook, Eat, Repeat on Monday night, she knocked up some brown butter colcannon (that's rich, buttery, veg filled mashed potatoes to most of us).

But the way the 60-year-old TV cook pronounced 'microwave' when talking viewers through the recipe has now become an internet meme.

"I still need a bit of milk - full fat - which I've warmed in the [micro-wa-vay]," she said.

Iconic.

Anyway, fast forward 24 hours and Nigella has now finally responded to all the furore.

When one fan commented on her Instagram last night writing: "Microwave said very oddly on your last program?x"

She replied with the perfect sassy comeback, which essentially put all the chit chat to bed.

"I know. On purpose," she wrote.

So, there you have it. She was messing with us all.

Nigella's comment has since racked up over 200 'likes' from fans appreciating her stroke of comedy genius.

"The regular pronunciation shall forever be replaced by that beauty," one follower quipped back in reply.

While another penned: "We don't deserve you".

"She's a domestic goddess and a modern Shakespeare," wrote another of Nigella's fans.

That is something we can all agree on.

It was also the topic of conversation on social media recently after a near five minute segment on how to butter toast - a TV moment which will also change our lives forever.

Nigella's toast-buttering technique is as follows: first, butter the toast when it's hot from the toaster.

Next, slather on a second layer of unsalted butter. Finally, sprinkle the twice-buttered toast with sea salt flakes.

"I'm loving the new series of Nigella," one fan wrote after the show last night.

"Double buttered toast, double carbs, all the greatest condiments and the best pronunciation of microwave. Ever."

We concur. What a Queen.
