Synopsis: 

Nadiya Hussain, winner of 2015's Great British Bake Off, is loved for her warmth and charisma as well as her unique approach to flavours. In her brand new TV series and book, Nadiya sets off around the country to meet some of the food heroes, growers and producers who are changing the face of modern British food.

 

Inspired by her journey, Nadiya has devised over 120 easy and enticing new recipes that fuse the local ingredients she encounters with her favourite flavours, plus a nod here and there to her Bangladeshi roots. Her reinvented classics sum up the remarkable diversity of twenty-first century Britain and the melting pot of tastes and culinary influences that shape what we all love to cook and eat today.

 

Nadiya's recipes just beg readers to try and taste for themselves, including: Masala Eggy Bread, Spiced Bean and Banger Stew, Ploughman's Cheese and Pickle Tart, Fish Pie with Cinnamon Sweet Potato, Lamb Bhuna with Garlic Naan, Star Anise Chicken Wings with Chunky Chips, Rosemary Banoffee Pie and Eton Mess Cheesecake.

 

Review:

The sampler of this cookbook from the winner of the popular Bake Off programme is crammed with appealing photographs designed to get your tummy rumbling and your tastebuds tingling, and it certainly did that!

The recipes are easy to follow and not there's no faffing about like you get with some other recipe books. After looking through this well thought out taster, I'll be looking forward to trying out some recipes from the full version.
