Joey Matthews to be a desi Nigella Lawson?

The model is going to turn chef-goddess and anchor with a hot and spicy food show

If you thought only Nigella Lawson could make you believe that cooking is sexy, think again. We are getting a desi version. Former model Joey Matthews is gearing up to host her own cooking show. And she sure isn’t going to shy away from really ‘hot’ topics. From what we’ve heard and seen so far, it seems Joey is more than willing to go the Nigella route and make the act of cooking an enticing one.

The model’s love for food started when she moved from her hometown in Kerala to Delhi for better career prospects. Since she missed her favourite authentic Malayali dishes, she started preparing them on her own. Her adventure with food continued when she moved to London. Now she’s back and ready to don her new hat as chef on her show, Love Bites With Joey. Of course, she won’t limit herself to Malayali cuisine. There is a whole array of dishes she’s feasted on during her travels that she’ll bring to your homes. Unlike Nigella, Joey has retained her model figure but that, we hear, isn’t going to make her any less interesting than the British TV chef whose curves single-handedly started a worldwide debate on female anchors. The two may be equally hot, but we do wonder if Joey’ll be a better cook. After all, the proof of the fish curry is in the eating, no?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Love Bites with Joey – leaves a lot to be desired

    1. Get a host who smiles and the audience can relate to
    2. Erase Blender Sounds – seriously!
    3. Food is all about presentation and this one was shoddy – kids can do a better job
    4. Camera work on the food needs a lot to desired – it doesn’t make it look good – hold the attention. Get someone with food photography experience.
    5. Once again to make this show a success – watch and learn from Nigella’s Kitchen, Donna Hayes and Master Chef Australia. Even Master Chef India did a better job.

    Have been seeing Joey of late on Good Times. I, think Joey is going places. I like her style, her voice, she is of course pretty. I like her all the more since she is mallu, me too.

    Sheryl are you kidding me…

    How good is this cooking show, its presented so naturally it’s like you have been invited into her kitchen and just able to sit, relax, and watch her do her stuff…its rough, ready, natural cooking. Not layered and touched up and fabricated like all the other products that try to bedazzle the viewers.

    Erase the blender sounds……? What’s next photoshopping the colour of the tomatoes, completely CG (computer generate) the salad dressing.
