  • Mugs and Cups

    Hello, team Nigella. Where can I find those cool vintage-looking green cups with the black trim along the rim from that Nigella uses? They featured in the Halloween green cupcake entry and the espresso cups were seen on "Nigellissima" in the episode that featured the Sambuca Kisses. Many thanks!

    From the nigella team:

    The small enamel mugs shown in a photograph on Nigella's Kitchen Witter (19th October 2012) and in Nigellissima originally came from the Conran Shop in London. Sadly Nigella bought them some time ago and they are no longer available.

    However, Sophie Conran recently designed a range for Burgon & Ball which includes a very similar but slightly larger enamel mug called "Allium Bloom".You can also try eBay and camping and fishing supply stores for similar mugs. You  may also like to look at the small enamel mugs made by Emalia that are slightly similar. They are availabe in a selection of colours from a couple of on-line sources.
