Nadiya Hussain is to front her own travel cooking show on the BBC
After winning Britain’s best baking show and stealing the hearts of the nation last year, Nadiya Hussian has gone from strength to strength.
From baking the Queen’s cake for her 90th
birthday just last week to publishing her own recipe book (due to hit shelves in June 2016), it has now been announced that the queen of all things cake will be fronting her very own BBC TV show later this year.
With possibly the best working title we’ve ever heard, ‘The Chronicles of Nadiya’ (bravo) will be an ‘exuberant food-inspired journey’ from Nadiya’s birthplace in Luton to her family village in the north east of Bangladesh.
This return visit to Bangladesh comes ten years after her wedding (and I’m sure we can all recall the amazing wedding cake she baked for last year’s final Showstopper Challenge) and will see the baking star catching up with the changing food scene in the country.
Patrick Holland, Head of Commissioning, Documentaries, says: “Nadiya’s story on Bake Off touched the hearts of the nation.
“We are delighted that she will be using her cooking skills to take us on a journey to such an extraordinary and changing land.”
This two-part series, airing date yet to be announced, will explore the traditional dishes of Bangladesh as Nadiya travels through the country on a voyage of food discovery. From cooking dishes from her childhood, visiting friends and family to share culinary delights and meeting people as passionate about food as she is, the show is sure to be a visual feast of deliciousness. We can’t wait.
Ready, steady, bake!
