Australian home cooks are in for a treat as Nigella Lawson will join the new season of the hit show My Kitchen Rules.

The domestic goddess will be teaming up with original judge Manu Feildel and former MasterChef judge Matt Preston to travel around the land down under dining in the homes of passionate hopefuls competing for the title of MKR Champion.

"Going to restaurants can be a treat, but for me, the true story of food is told through the cooking we do at home," Nigella says.

"So to have the chance to champion home cooks and be given the intimate privilege of being invited into people's homes to eat their food fills me with gratitude and excitement in equal measure.

"I'm so looking forward to working with Manu too. Although he's a chef and I'm a home cook, the fact is we both just want to eat good food," she continued.
