Nadiya Hussain (Author)
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, hit the bestseller charts in 2016, and was shortlisted for a British Book Award. The follow-up, Bake Me a Festive Story, is out now. She has also published cookbooks for adults and novels, and has three television series to her name, The Chronicles of Nadiya, Nadiya's British Food Adventure and The Big Family Cooking Showdown.
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.
Nadiya lives with her husband, Abdal and is mum to three gorgeous children.

Everyone's favourite Bake Off winner is back with her blend of storytelling and tasty treats. This book is all about celebrations from around the world, so as well as yummy recipes for Spring Rolls, Rainbow Fudge, Jewelled Rice and Monkey Bread, there are craft activities and stories that celebrate Chinese New Year, Eid, Holi, Easter, Thanksgiving and many more.
With bright illustrations and a smart hardback finish, this is a real treat of a book that would make a great present for any blossoming bakers. The stories themselves are short and sweet with surprising dashes of modern life that catch you off guard and make you laugh - 'One day the family were lounging about. Loose Women was on the telly.' Even the traditional tales have these hints of modern life to shake things up, like the remote village between mountains where the Nian locusts swarm every year, a village so small 'you had to stand on one leg with your hands in the air to get a mobile signal.'
Like Nadiya herself, this book is full of joy and love for all things family and food.
