Celebrity Chef “Simply Nigella” Chooses KC for Christmas Special

Nigella Lawson Loves Kansas City

Five years ago Nigella Lawson visited Kansas City and she never 
forgot how magical it was. Fast-forward to her newest UK-based
cooking show, BBC's "Simply Nigella" and where does she choose 
to film the first Christmas special for her show? Kansas City.

Nigella is a celebrity chef with a career history as a journalist, 
broadcaster, television personality, gourmet and food writer. She has
written eleven cookbooks and Simply Nigella is her most recent. 

She has also starred in several of her own cooking shows - 
Nigella Bites, Forever Summer, Nigella, Nigella Feasts, Nigella
Express, Nigella Kitchen, Nigellissima, The Taste and Simply Nigella. 

Nigella has been a celebrity guest on shows like ABC's Modern Family, 
Bravo's Top Chef, Food Network's Iron Chef and Australia's Master Chef.

The Simply Nigella production filmed the cooking portions of the
show in a UK studio and the Christmas magic segments on an
Arri AMIRA camera here in Kansas City. They hired two KC crew.

A few of the Kansas City locations they used are Union Station,
Country Club Plaza, Crown Center, Mud Pie Vegan Bakery, and Westport Ale House.

They filmed during the Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed their first-ever American Thanksgiving meal at The Raphael Hotel.

Nigella and her crew stayed at the beautiful Intercontinental Hotel on the Plaza. The KC Film+Media Office was happy to assist this production!
