Nadiya Hussain is back this month to let us in on some big family plans for her regular #NadiyaBakes blog for Goodtoknow…
Over the last few weeks I have left two suitcases sitting in my brother’s bedroom, wide open, full of clothes, medication and an abundance of confectionery. I have had the best intentions to pack the suitcases properly for over six weeks and I still haven’t managed to get round to it. Not just because of the fact I have been busy most days but mainly because I hate packing suitcases. My husband however is a dab hand at it, and I am secretly hoping he will just take pity on me and do it soon.
‘I have taken the very impulsive decision to take the kids on the trip of lifetime’
A few months ago my children watched the Chronicles of Nadiya. This was the two part travelogue slash foodie documentary that saw me travel through Bangladesh. I travelled through familiar parts of the country rediscovering the vast village that my granddad left behind.
I also travelled alone through parts of Bangladesh that I had never seen. The kids watched it in awe that they were somehow connected to this beautiful country, and even more beautiful family. Much to my shame I have travelled all over the world with the kids but have managed to leave out Bangladesh.
Nadiya has been busy doing some Halloween baking this month
So this half term I have taken the very impulsive decision to take the kids to Bangladesh, for only a few days but I know that it will be a trip of lifetime. A journey of discovery, emotions and not to forget beautiful weather!
‘I baked a cake taller than my 6 years old daughter’
Meanwhile I have been distracting myself with lots of amazing things over this last month. I baked a cake taller than my 6 years old daughter for the DVD release of Alice Through The Looking Glass.
Nadiya’s larger than life Alice in Wonderland cake!
I baked a cake for ladies at BBC Radio 4 Women’s Hour as I helped them celebrate their 70th Years.
Not to mention my new journey with the BBC I have kicked it all off by travelling with my favourite One Show Team and yes that involved more baking!
