So who thought up the title? I’m not sure if I like it or if it makes me want to run screaming from the room. But I wouldn’t, not when last year’s magnificent Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain takes me on a trip.
As a new series of GBBO starts, Nadiya – ebullient, clever, kind, heart-on-her-sleeve Nadiya – takes her courage in both hands to travel alone to the land of her forebears, Bangladesh. She’s never been anywhere by herself, she’s always been accompanied by her kids.
But Nadiya need have no fear. Her extended family waits quietly and reverently as she arrives at their front door, before hurling rose petals (“I’m not getting married!” she squeals) and smiling endlessly and sweetly. These, she tells us, are the people who fired her to her Bake Off victory with their thoughts and prayers.
There’s plenty of cooking – oh those curries! – and a few cultural snippets along the way.
Part one of two. Documentary following Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain as she takes a food-inspired journey and returns to her roots in Bangladesh. In the first edition, she travels to her family village near Sylhet in the north east of the country, where she shares her favourite recipes, including baked fish with green mango chutney and thoosha shinni. For a relative's wedding, she bakes a three-tiered pumpkin celebration cake for the bride, and she also takes the opportunity to reconnect with family she has not seen since her arranged marriage over ten years ago.
