Tried and Tested: Nadiya’s Bake Me a Story.

It was nearly elevenses time, and a little old lady was at home with nothing to dunk in her cup of tea. She rooted through her cupboards. There were no chocolate cookies, no figgie rolls- not even any plain old crackers. But she could see lots of flour, brown sugar, honey and jars upon jars of spices.

Nadiya Hussein was the baker who made Mary Berry cry for all the right reasons. Probably the most popular ever winner of The Great British Bake-Off, Nadiya’s daring use of spices won over the judges, while her self-effacing humour and charming smile melted viewers’ hearts.


Nadiya's Bake Me a Story. Nadiya Hussein. Review

A role as judge on the BBC’s Junior Bake-Off followed, where Nadiya conquered a younger audience with similar ease. Next, came a documentary about her family’s roots in Bangladesh, magazine columns, and regular TV slots. Nadiya has proven herself a natural TV personality. She is pretty and likeable, she is funny, she can tell a good story, and she comes across as just a nice, average mum.

There is nothing average, however, about Nadiya Hussein. Debrett’s listed this…(read on here).

  1. As ever your review makes me want to grab the book and gorge myself on it. The format is reminiscent of a book that was adored by my children and now sits, pages crunchy with goodness knows what, torn from having stuck together with egg or milk or whatever mixture – Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes. Tessa Dahl wrote it a little while after the maestro’s death and if it is still in print, and you don’t already have it, I unreservedly recommend it. This one I think I might have to sneak into my trolley for grandchildren yet to be just because it really seems too good to pass by. My thanks.

  2. Your review has made me feel homesick. A feeling I’m never prepared for and triggered by the smallest things (watching Sherlock this week, the voice of the BBC presenter at the end, for example). Maybe because we watched that particular series of the Bake Off. Anyway, I’m rambling..The book looks great, the Little Red Hen is such a favourite of ours I’d have to try that first.
