The Lovereading4Kids comment

With the nation – young and old alike – once again glued to Bake Off, the timing of this is perfect. We all regard last year’s winner Nadiya Hussain as a personal friend, and the chance to share some of her favourite recipes feels like a real treat. There are lots of recipes included, for sweet and savoury goodies, and children will love helping to make them. What’s more, it’s full too of favourite stories, retold by Nadiya with a thoroughly modern twist, and in a very lively voice. Sweet illustrations by Clair Rossiter and photographs – of the food of course, but of Nadiya and her three children too – make it look delicious. Stories and baking – life doesn’t get much better! ~ Andrea Reece

Nadiya said; “I bake with my children and I grew up with parents who are big cooks. My Dad always said that kids shouldn’t be scared of the kitchen. We forget that it’s a life skill, to be able to go into the kitchen and make something to eat.”

About the Author

Nadiya Hussain

Never again will she say she can't. Nadiya can and she will. Nadiya Hussain's delicious bakes and desserts, captivating smile and sparkling personality made her a hugely popular winner of 2015's Great British Bake Off. Her first children's book, Nadiya's Bake Me a Story, will be published in the autumn of 2016, with her cookbook for adults, Nadiya's Kitchen, coming in June 2016. In addition to her books, Nadiya is a columnist for The Times and Essentials, and a regular reporter for The One Show on BBC One. Nadiya's family is originally from Bangladesh, where desserts aren't a feature of mealtimes. But, encouraged by a school home economics teacher, Nadiya honed her skills as a baker over ten years and produces fabulous bakes and desserts every day. She also loves to write, having won a National Poetry competition as a child. Born in Luton, Nadiya lives with her husband, Abdal and is mum to three gorgeous children.
