A perspicacious Twitter follower named Jim Lawrence summed it up in a single sentence: “This is the 21st century: the only things in my timeline right now are Chavez and @Nigella_Lawson”
So just how Twitter-ific is the star of “The Taste”? Would you believe 27 tweets in the five-hour period surrounding the show’s airing (separate times for the coasts)? All told, there were more than 60 tweets from the assorted co-hosts -- and that's with one of them incognito.
Among Lawson's pearls of wisdom:
“Wearing @lwrenscott Postmistress Dress for @TheTasteABC tonight,” she tweeted at the start of the show.
“Those Sambuca kisses with chocolate sauce are sensational spoonfuls of sexiness! What's wrong widju Ingrid?!
“So, who's sexiest between @chefludo , @BrianMalarkey & @Bourdain ?"
“#TeamNigella's ingredients may not be fancy-schmancy, but I believe in full-throated taste Caviar, lobster, oysters: no"
And finally: “Feel like a student who's pulled an all-nighter. Past 6am and just going to bed. I blame @TheTasteABC!”
Co-host Brian Malarkey (@brianmalarkey) was right behind with 22 tweets, though most were retweets responding to other people’s comments.
After Lawson explained a barb with, “This is how the English show love, I'm afraid”, he came back with “Glad 2 B Americano!”
