“My kitchen is so much more than a room” Bake Off Winner Nadiya Hussain To Release A Cookbook


She was recently hitting tabloid front-pages for baking the Queen a rather controversial cake (first the eggs and then the mixed reactions) – for her 90th and here she is, creating ripples yet again. The Great British Bake Off Winner will now let us all have a bite of her recipe by releasing a cookbook in June this year.


Nadiya’s Kitchen

The Luton-born chef’s cookbook, which is called Nadiya’s Kitchen, will also carry the recipe for the three-tiered orange drizzle gateau she baked for the Queen along with other delicious delights like Beetroot and Mackerel Crescents, Manchego and Chorizo Calzone and Salted Pretzel Fudge. Hussain’s publicist confirmed the book’s release as June ‘16. That also happens to be the month Queen Elizabeth II has picked to officially celebrate her birthday.

Now it may seem as if Hussain is cashing in on her royal fame but truth be told, isn’t this the path taken by most cooking how winners and runner ups? And really, what’s wrong with yet another awesometastic cookbook in the market?

“Dance for fun. The exclusive venue for a date night. Tea time and after school tantrums. The place where we cook together and everyone’s the boss. My kitchen is so much more than my kitchen. It’s our kitchen.”


Recipe for Disaster?

Hussain may have garnered a lot of attention, appreciation and applause for her achievements, but the Queen’s cake was not exactly a recipe for compliments. Though the 31-year-old took her winning recipe to the palace, it failed to impress masses. And while the Queen didn’t exactly take a bite (ouch), she said it “sounded beautiful”.

Meanwhile, here’s what the Twitteratis had to say:

While some thought it was rather “circus-y”…
