From passionate home cook to Australia's most popular food blogger, Lorraine Elliott has her cake and eats it too – and she's never been happier.

Lorraine Elliott has long been a food enthusiast who believes cakes belong in an art gallery. Not so long ago she decided to ditch her day job as a highly-paid media strategist to follow her passions and become a full-time flogger (foodie + blogger). Her fabulous food blog Not Quite Nigella is now the go-to cyber destination for hundreds of thousands of foodies from around the world.

Not Quite Nigella, the book, is the story behind this journey. It contains the key to baking perfect macarons, the secret to winning a man's heart through food, tips on hosting unforgettable dinner parties and a how-to guide to creating a successful blog.

More than a celebration of food, Not Quite Nigella is chick lit come true - the inspiring and delightful story of a woman who finds the courage to follow her dreams.

About the Author

Not Quite Nigella is Lorraine Elliott, a cake and food enthusiast who believes that cakes belong in an art gallery. Lorraine worked in advertising as a consultant and media strategist before launching her blog, which is now her more than full time job. She loves kitsch and unusual things, travelling far and wide for an unusual meal and cooking and eating food from different countries all around the world. Her favourite cuisine is French and Japanese (or a fusion between the two). she lives in Sydney with her food-apathetic husband who takes most of the restaurant photos for her blog whilst she takes all the still photos of the food that she cooks.



Good all round read


Entertaining food blog and

Bit disapointed


I thought it was going to be a collection of recipes and not a biography - perhaps that was my fault for not looking more into the book before buying.



But Close Enough


Lorraine Elliott has a very special talent for engaging the reader, whether it be by feeling that they are by her side while she devours the yummiest cupcake in the world or along for the ride on a one-night, mad dash to six different restaurants in suburban Sydney on a quest to find the tastiest Peking duck! This book is a fine complement to Lorraine's daily blog, Not Quite Nigella. If you love food and travel served with some interesting anecdotes, you will love the exploits of our own Domestic Bloggess!
