Join Great British Bake Off sensation Nadiya Hussain for scrumptious stories and delicious bakes that the family can enjoy together at Christmas.

Combining playful photography of Nadiya and her children with vibrant illustrations by Clair Rossiter, Nadiya’s Bake Me a Festive Story includes thirty festive recipes and stories for children and will be published 5th October 2017, by Hachette Children’s Group.

This unique combination of storybook and cookbook, with all recipes and stories devised and written by Nadiya herself, brings families into the kitchen to share this special time of year through cooking and stories.

  • Go on an adventure to the Snow Queen’s palace, then make her treacle icecream
  • Make and decorate cheesy-feet biscuits, then read the story about where all the odd socks go at Christmas time
  • Meet some very confused elves in The Elves and the Chouxmaker, then bake your own lemon choux buns
  • Read Nadiya’s version of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, then cook a scrumptious nut roast

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, as did her cookbook for adults, Nadiya’s Kitchen. In addition to her cookbooks, Nadiya also writes novels, is a columnist for The Times and Essentials, a regular reporter for The One Show on BBC One, and has her own travel show, The Chronicles of Nadiya.

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.

Born in Luton, Nadiya lives with her husband, Abdal and is mum to three gorgeous children.
