A great British baker shares shes favorite recipes

Nadiya Hussain is a British television chef, author, and television presenter. She became very popular after winning the sixth series of BBC’s The Great British Bake off in 2015. She hosted the documentary The Chronicles of Nadiya and the TV cookery series: Nadiya’s British Food Adventure and Nadiya’s Family Favourites. 

Let’s discover the 10 Nadiya Hussain Cookbooks that you didn’t know you needed! πŸ‘‡


1. Time to Eat

Why We Love It ❀️

We love this cookbook because it’s unique, funny, and efficient. It takes us into the author’s world and her world of cooking. It is a delight to read and a joy to use. Read about another great author called Victoria Rosenthal in our guide on the Fallout Cookbook.

Review πŸ“–

Nadiya Hussain begins with Chapter 1s: “Don’t Throw Anything Away.” As long as it is not poisonous, we can probably do something with it. Right? Chapter 2, “Canned, Frozen, and Dry Are Not Bad Words,” shouldn’t sound bad in any cook’s vocabulary because they save us time and money. 

Chapter 3 is called “The Freezer Is My Friend” and advises us always to keep one drawer empty. Having just that little space means we have room to think on our feet. Chapter 4 speaks of “Every Dish Is Two Dishes.” One meal can be turned into two without having to cook it twice. How often have we made a huge soup pot, then added pasta or rice to it in the morning? Yes, one meal can become two!

Chapter 5 is called “Everything Is An Ingredient,” You can make something out of anything. Chapter 6 speaks of microwaving because it is quick and very handy. 

Nadiya Hussain packed this cookbook with practical and useful tips on freezing, storing, prepping, using leftovers, and more. Do you want to try Nadia’s Avocado Pesto or Raspberry Cheesecake Croissants? Nadia has crafted over 100 delicious time-saving recipes to take the stress out of cooking and bring joy back into every meal.
