Nadiya Hussain wins foodie and fashion hearts with her new British cooking show
The Bake Off champion’s mouth-watering debut episode with a hit with everybody.
Former Great British Bake Off champion Nadiya Hussain has delighted television viewers with her new cookery series, receiving compliments on everything from her food to her fashion.
The London-born chef and writer of Bangladeshi origins served up a winning menu of recipes, cooking tips and agriculture lessons as she presented new BBC 2 show, Nadiya’s British Food Adventure.
In Monday night’s debut episode, she whipped up a batch of fresh cheese scones, tried her hand at some asparagus farming and learned about smoking fish from a retired fireman, before showing viewers how to make a mouth-watering Eton Mess cheesecake.
Following her 2016 show, The Chronicles Of Nadiya, the new series marks another success for the 32-year-old mother, whose victory in the 2015 contest launched her professional cooking career.
One viewer commented on Twitter: “Doesn’t Nadiya look like she’s been presenting TV all her life!” while another added; “Nadia you are a marvel, such great recipes.”
One food fan wrote: “I am so on board for Nadiya’s liberal attitude to butter, cheese, cream and sugar, she’s the best…love her,” and another tweeted the star directly: “Loving the show Nadiya, also loving that blue and white stripy shirt, where did you get it from?”
