Enjoy an Evening with Nigella Lawson at the Midwest Trust Center

See internationally renowned food writer and TV cook, Nigella Lawson, live on stage at the Midwest Trust Center. The evening will include a conversation and Q&A about the people, food and recipes that have shaped her unique career and life. This one night only conversation will be at the Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College Saturday, November 19, at 8 pm.

Her latest book “Cook, Eat, Repeat: Ingredients, Recipes and Stories” will feature prominently in the discussion along with her 11 other bestselling books. In addition to writing, Lawson hosted the TV series “Nigella Bites,” which aired in 2000 followed by several successful series in the U.K., U.S., Australia and beyond. She was a judge for three seasons on “The Taste” and appeared multiples times on “MasterChef Australia.”

She has been called “the Thinking Person’s Cook” (The Times), while her cooking and writing have been praised as “intimate” (The Guardian) and “charmingly aloof yet unpretentious” (Harper’s Bazaar).

Ms. Lawson will be joined by moderator Jenny Vergara, a culinary marketer, professional storyteller and hostess with the most. Her goal? To make you hungry. She is the co-host for “Hungry for MO,” a podcast about the history of the foods from the state of Missouri, produced by Kansas City’s NPR affiliate, KCUR 89.3 FM Studios, with help from the Missouri Humanities Council. She is also the dedicated food columnist at IN Kansas City Magazine.

Guests are invited to make a night of it and join us for a pre-show dinner at 6:30 pm, catered by JCCC Executive Chef, Mark McCann. Dinner will be held at the Regnier Center next door to the Midwest Trust Center. Purchase tickets to the pre-show dinner here.
