Lorraine is writing what in many ways could be the memoir for Generation X. She had a high-flying advertising job with a fab salary but she didn't love it. And each day she wondered how she could spend more time following her passion - food. Finally, prompted by her husband, the mysterious Mr NQN, she creates a blog about recipes and restaurants and ditches her day job. Her chapters include: telling her parents she's quit her job; explaining her new job to her weirder-than-weird mother-in-law; how she fell in love with food; what she would eat if it could be anything in the world; why bacon goes with anything and everything; how to get people to take a blog seriously; whether you can actually make a living out of a blog; and why sweet is better than savoury. Lorraine writes wonderfully about food and makes up crazy, fabulous recipes, but she also explores in a very inspiring way the (Gen X) pre-mid-life-crisis and what to do when you are not living the life you want.

About Lorraine Elliott

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 cuisines are French and Japanese (or a fusion between the two). She lives in Sydney with her food-apathetic husband.
