Instagram Can’t Stop Joking About Nigella Lawson’s ‘Risque’ Quail Post – Mashed

Nigella Lawson exudes self-confidence. She kind of takes it all in stride and isn’t afraid to be herself, and we love the domestic goddess for these very reasons. Lawson has a healthy relationship with food and laughs it off when social media compares her ruby red noodles to something from a sci-fi show. The “Cook, Eat, Repeat” cookbook author wrote, “Food, for me, is a constant pleasure: I like to think greedily about it, reflect deeply on it, learn from it; it provides comfort, inspiration, meaning, and beauty … More than just a mantra, ‘cook, eat, repeat’ is the story of my life.” Amen – because we feel the same way.

That’s one of the reasons we are always fangirling over Lawson’s recipe of the day posts on Instagram and Twitter. They always look innovative, classic, and absolutely delish! Whether she is giving us a creative British twist on a classic Sicilian pasta or making us take a leap of faith with her summer pudding, the “Nigella Bites” star knows how to get her followers talking. But her latest recipe of the day has the tongues of her Instagram followers wagging but perhaps not for the usual reasons. Her fans couldn’t help but notice what one might call the “risque” appearance of the food in the post. They responded with well-intentioned jokes. 

Nigella posted a pic of coquettish-looking quails

Nigella shared her #RecipeOfTheDay for Hoisin Quail on Instagram with the caption, “They do, however, need marinating for a day, before being cooked in the oven, grill/broiler, or flung on a barbecue! It’s a bit of a blast from the past, this recipe, but really quite simple and very delicious!” Sounds yummy, and they look juicy and succulent as they set on top of a white serving tray, neatly lined up with their roasted legs turned inwards. And it is this seemingly “provocative” nature of the photo that has set the comments ablaze. One Instagram follower remarked, “Love a coy quail” while another shared that they “love their chunky thighs.” And someone else wrote, “The picture of the quail looks like a large busted lady with her knees up. I can’t unsee it.” We can’t help but giggle at these cheeky responses.


But those opinions are not just held by Lawson’s Instagram followers. Her fans on Twitter also had similar opinions. One follower from the Twitterverse wrote, “I always think they look ladies that need the loo.” While another humorously tweeted, “Um that quail placed like that is making me feel weird things…” Regardless, we are sure it is a recipe worth making and an even better conversation starter at dinner.

Social networking websites launch features to encourage users to get boosters





Facebook Instagram and TikTok are launching new features to encourage people to get their coronavirus booster jabs.

From Friday, users will be able to update their profiles with frames or stickers to show that they have had their top-up jab or aim to when they become eligible.

It follows on from people previously being able to show they have had their first and second jabs on certain social networking websites and apps.

TikTok also held a “grab a jab” event in London earlier this year.

I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones

More than 16 million booster vaccines have now been given across the UK.

People who are aged 40 and above and received their second dose of their vaccine at least six months ago are currently eligible to have their booster.

A new campaign advert is also being launched on Friday, which shows how Covid-19 can build up in enclosed spaces and how to prevent that from happening.

Vaccines minister Maggie Throup said:  “Getting your booster is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your family this winter.

“It is fantastic to see some of the biggest household names further back the phenomenal vaccine rollout, allowing their users to proudly display that they have played their part in helping us build a wall of defence across the country.

“I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top-up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones.”

How many hashtags should you use to get the most ‘Likes’ on Instagram?

Hashtags are a key feature of Instagram posts. In fact, they have become an essential means of ensuring more ‘Likes’ on social media – so long as you choose them wisely.

But how many hashtags should you use to maximise your popularity on the social network? The answer might surprise you.

It’s a question that many Instagram users ask themselves: what’s the right number of hashtags to add to a post? To find out, the Later platform analysed 18 million Instagram posts, excluding videos, Reels and Stories.

Interestingly, Later’s results differ from Instagram’s own recommendations. According to Later’s analysis, using more hashtags helps get better results in terms of “reach”, or the percentage of users exposed to the post. By using 20 hashtags, Later observed an optimal average reach rate of just under 36%. Using 30 hashtags gets the next-best reach rate. With five hashtags, reach hits just under 24%.

And while a post’s reach is important, engagement is even more so. From “Likes” and comments to shares and follows – on average, 30 hashtags appears to result in better engagement rates: “When it comes to average engagement rate, using 30 Instagram hashtags per feed post results in the most likes and comments,” says Later’s research.

Yet, at the end of September 2021, Instagram advised its creators to use between three and five hashtags for their posts, while warning them against using too many. The social network advised that using 10 to 20 hashtags per post “will not help you get additional distribution”.

For Later, there could be other reasons behind Instagram’s recommendations: “As Instagram continues to expand their discoverability and SEO tools, it makes sense that they want users to experiment with fewer, more relevant hashtags – this could help them accurately categorise and recommend your posts in suggested content streams, like the Instagram Reels feed or the updated hashtag search tabs,” the website explains. – AFP Relaxnews
