Nadiya Hussain Q & A

To whet your appetite for the BBC Good Food Show at Olympia, London from 11th – 13th November 2016, here’s a mini Q&A soundbite from Nadiya Hussain, the 2015 Great British Bake Off winner (as if I needed to remind you). Sadly it wasn’t an interview with me but via the publicity people who organise the Show who have kindly allowed me to post it here.

Q. What is your favourite dish to cook?

N.H. I love one pot dishes. So a chicken tagine, with preserved lemons and dates. Served with lemon couscous.

Q. What is your top tip for festive cooking?

N.H. Try and do as much in advance. I like to pre prep anything that can be done and then par cook anything that can be finished off last minute. I always par cook/blanch my roasties and then freeze them and cook again in fat to get them really crispy.

Q. What is your most treasured item in the kitchen?

N.H. My favourite thing in the kitchen has to be my micro plane. I can’t believe how well those things grate the zest of any fruit. I’m always mesmerised. But my treasured item would have to be my oven as without it I’m quite literally half a person. Recently moving house I hadn’t used an oven for 9 days – it’s the longest I have been without baking and it was pretty tough.

Q. What are you most looking forward to about the BBC Good Food Shows?

N.H. I have attended the BBC Good Food Shows before but this year it will be interesting to come back since so much has changed. Very excited to be a part of it all.

Q. What new ingredient or ingredients are you inspired by right now?

N.H. I am loving yellow ras-el-hanout. It works so well as a coating on fish but it’s even better with slow cooked lamb.

 

Don’t forget that I have two *FREE* tickets up for grabs – you can go to the Show in London on Friday 11th November or Sunday 13th November 2016. Follow me on Twitter for details of how to enter the draw – @TheLittlePK.

FREE!  GRATIS! BE IN IT TO WIN IT!   And all that sort of thing……..

The Show’s awfully nice organisers have kindly provided me with two free tickets to the Show – valid for either Friday 11th or Sunday 13th November 2016 (sorry, not the Saturday). Sorry but the tickets DON’T include entry to the SuperTheatre or any tasting sessions.

BUT –  the best news is that these two free tickets aren’t for me but are in fact for a *GIVEAWAY*. In other words, a *FREEBIE*!

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning the two free tickets, follow me on Twitter (@TheLittlePK) for details. I’ll be posting the tickets to the lucky winner so you’ll have to DM me your address, which of course I won’t share with anyone else.

I’ll be at the Show on Friday 11th November and I’d love to meet up with members of the Twitter cakey crowd if any of you will be there too.
