Her first TV series, Nigella Bites aired in 2000, followed by a string of successful series broadcast in the UK, USA, Australia and beyond.

Lawson was a judge on the three seasons of The Taste which broadcast in the UK and US in 2013 and 2014. She has made several appeaances on MasterChef Australia.
