While she did not appear on camera, the former AFL WAG was eager to show off the chic yet minimally decorated lunch in the yard of their office.

There was a low table with a beige tablecloth on top, plus matching pillows for seating and a bench on the other side.

When the food arrived, Nadia showed a glimpse of their scrumptious banquet.

It comes after Nadia, the ex-wife of retired Geelong star Jimmy Bartel, found herself at the centre of a scandal last month. 

Damning footage showed the socialite attending an illegal gathering in Melbourne during the Covid lockdown on September 2.

Nadia and three other women were each fined $5,452 after footage from the party was accidentally posted on Instagram by her friend and business partner Ellie Pearson.

The video saw Nadia, once known for her impeccably clean-cut image, snorting a line of white powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate.

While she wasn’t charged with drug offences because police couldn’t prove what she was snorting, the video nonetheless caused irreparable damage to her brand and she was dropped by number of major sponsors.

She issued an apology on Instagram 24 hours after the video was leaked, telling her followers: ‘I have let you all down by my actions.

‘I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future.

‘To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers trying to keep us all safe, I am embarrassed and remorseful.’

‘I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust,’ she concluded.
