In Conversation with Nadiya Hussain: Nadiya's British Food Adventure

Loved for her warmth and charisma as well as her unique approach to flavours, Britain’s favourite Bake Off winner, Nadiya Hussain, has captured the heart of the nation.
In this very special event, Nadiya will be in conversation with Barney Desmazery, Senior food Editor at BBC Good Food Magazine, about her life and adventures with food - from cooking for her family to baking the Queen's 90th Birthday Cake - and how she'll never say "maybe" again. 

Combining her love of family and food, flavour and fun, Nadiya will introduce her latest recipe book, Nadiya's British Food Adventure, which transforms familiar British dishes into fresh and enticing new recipes inspired by her travels to visit local food heroes and producers up and down the country. Come and hear about Masala Eggy Bread, Jerk Haddock, Rosemary Banoffee Pie and more, and find the inspiration to expand your own cooking repertoire.

Nadiya's British Food Adventure

Nadiya Hussain

Invite Nadiya into your kitchen . . . Now with her own prime-time BBC2 cookery series, Britain's favourite Bake Off winner presents her latest cookbook, featuring mouth-wateringly delicious recipes from the programme . . .

Nadiya takes trout from Yorkshire to the sun soaked Mediterranean, with her baked sea trout, potatoes and sundried tomatoes spiked with lemon. Gorgeous salty halloumi and caramelised sweet watermelon skewers with a tangy tamarind dip make the perfect light lunch. Straight from Nadiya's Bangladeshi roots, a nutty burnt garlic dressing; the perfect compliment for a fresh, summery apple, walnut and coriander salad. And for dessert, a West Indian tropical hit of fruity, fragrant pink peppercorn pineapple jam to top sweet scones and coconut cream. The ultimate exotic treat.


'The best kind of cookbook . . . you can read it like a novel' The Times

Nadiya Hussain was crowned the nation's winner of 2015's Great British Bake Off. Famed for her talent and adventurous flavour choices, she sets off on a journey around the country to meet some of the finest growers, producers and pioneers behind the best of modern British food.

Inspired by her exploration, Nadiya has created over 120 easy and enticing new recipes that mix the local ingredients she encounters with her very favourite flavours, not forgetting a nod to her Bangladeshi roots.

Her reinvented classics capture the diversity of twenty-first century Britain - of tastes and culinary influences that shape what we love to cook and eat today.

Lavishly photographed, Nadiya's must-try recipes have got you covered from breakfast to mid-week meals to something a little bit special, and of course puddings and parties too. Here's a little flavour . . .

Motivated by her love of family and food, flavour and fun, this is Nadiya cooking in the way she knows best - inspiring the rest of us to do the same.
