Sophie Dahl has obviously been getting inspiration from Nigella Lawson for her new cookery show, BBC2's six-part The Delicious Miss Dahl.
She seductively nibbles olives from the end of a coctkail stick, and licks her lips as she takes a sniff at a bottle of red wine.
She also takes a lot of pleasure from sampling a piece of her peanut butter fudge and, when describing buffalo mozzarella, she says: 'I actually sort of fantasise about this cheese.'
Sophie describes herself as 'a home cook learned at my grandmother's knee', ahead of the cookery programme, which starts tomorrow.
In the meantime, try out Sophie's peanut butter fudge recipe - and see what all the groans are about!
