Nadiya Hussain is embarking on a culinary road trip around Britain in a brand new series for BBC2.
During the series, the 2015 winner of BBC1’s ‘The Great British Bake Off’ will travel the length and breadth of Britain seeking out great British food.
The broadcaster said that in each episode of ‘Nadiya’s British Food Adventure’, she will visit a different region ‘to discover some of our most exciting food pioneers, before taking us into the kitchen to create her own delicious recipes’.
Her voyage of discovery will range from the Highlands of Scotland to the coasts of Devon and Dorset.
Nadiya wants to find inspiration from local heroes who are creating unique ‘food stories’ and reviving artisan food traditions, meeting farmers, growers and fishermen.
Using their local ingredients to form the basis of her new recipes, she will create dishes that showcase the best of British.
Nadiya said: “Our country’s regional cuisine is much more than tried and tested traditional dishes. There are quirky and clever food producers out there who are reinventing British food in unique and exciting ways.
“I can’t wait to meet these local food heroes, to find inspiration in the most unusual food stories and unlikely ingredients, and then come up with some brand new recipes in the kitchen, adding my own special twist.”
‘Nadiya’s British Food Adventure’ is a series of eight episodes lasting 30 minutes each. Timings have not yet been announced.
