Home-cooking legend, Nigella Lawson, was in the capital on Monday night and tried one of the most iconic foods that Ireland has to offer.

She was in Dublin as part of a live talk with food writer Niamh Shields at the National Concert Hall.

She was feeling a bit peckish at the break and there was only one food that was going to get her through.

A nice packet of Tayto.

You may be thinking, what the eff was she doing with a pack of Salt and Vinegar? Why didn't she choose the 'original' Tayto.

Well you see, Nigella already had her cheese fix earlier in the day and didn't want to overdo it but as she told a fan on her Twitter, she soon found out that Cheese and Onion are in fact superior.

Even Mr. Tayto was delighted to meet the television star stating the pleasure was all his... the charmer!

The interview with Shields was part of a celebration for the 20th year anniversary of Lawson's first book: 'How to Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food'.

James Kavanagh was just one of the many people who were packed into the event on Monday night.
