Nadiya Hussain’s career has gone from strength-to-strength since she was crowned the more-than-worthy winner of 2015′s Great British Bake-Off.
Having secured her own column in The Times Magazine and cooked The Queen’s 90th birthday cake, Nadiya is now set to explore her new culinary roots in a new TV documentary.
‘The Chronicles of Nadiya’ (amazing name we know) will follow the Bake-Off star’s ‘exurberant’ culinary journey from her home town in Luton to her family village in the north east of Bangladesh.
In the two-part programme, produced the Love Productions, Nadiya will cook dishes from her childhood, share her favourite meals with family and friends, meet people as passionate about food as she is and learn new recipes, as well as exploring changes in the country’s food.
She last visited ten years ago for her wedding.
Holland, head of commissioning for documentaries at the BBC, said:
“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.”
Tweeting about her big news, Nadiya wrote: “It’s true Chronicles of Nadiya! So excited to share my journey with everyone …#chroniclesofnadiya”.
We can’t wait to watch this.
