Nigella Lawson fan says banana skin curry recipe is ‘perfect metaphor for 2020’

Nigella Lawson baffled fans after sharing a recipe for her banana skin and cauliflower curry with one person saying “2020 just got more bonkers.”

The 60-year-old chef returned to our screens with her new series, Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat, on BBC Two, showcasing innovative recipes including lamb shanks, fish finger bhorta and noodles, as well as sharing her favourite kitchen hacks.

But it was the final recipe, a banana skin and cauliflower curry that really surprised viewers.

Explaining her inspiration for the dish, Nigella said: “I can’t bear throwing anything away. And when I found out that you could eat banana skins, I couldn’t get in the kitchen fast enough. It’s a revelation.

A third said: “They’d better watch this on Gogglebox.”

“2020 just got more bonkers,” wrote a fourth.

Whereas one person said: “I feel like @Nigella_Lawson making something delicious out of old banana skins is the perfect metaphor for good things emerging in the final weeks of one totally awful 2020.”

Nigella also referenced the recipe on Twitter, writing: “I hope I didn’t traumatise you too much with the banana skins (I promise you the curry is divine).”
