Nadiya tells all to EIH guests

In an uplifting exclusive interview at the virtual Excellence in Housewares Awards last night (Wednesday December 9), author, tv presenter and winner of The Great British Bake Off, Nadiya Hussain delighted Awards attendees with her revelations.

Nadiya confessed to her top five kitchen essentials, which reflect her love of baking: a spatula, whisk (“How else would you whisk up egg whites?”), a rolling pin, sieve (not just for flour but for making chai) and a good knife. “I’m really obsessed with good knives,” said the celebrity, whose dad does spot checks on sharpness whenever he visits!

When it comes to a luxury item in her kitchen, Nadiya picked her dehydrator, which enables her to replicate her “innate need to dry things in the sun.” Her enthusiasm prompted EIH attendees to exchange chat on wanting their own dehydrators!

Talking about creating a range with BlissHome, and her pride on seeing her own products in John Lewis, Nadiya said that, in future collaborations, she would “love to do a really good mixer.” She recognises the value of such a gadget for bakers: “My wrists don’t have to suffer any more!”

The celebrity baker shared her stories of cooking with her Grandad in Bangladesh aged six or seven, as well as her Dad’s “experimental” approach in the kitchen. She admitted that her love of baking came later. Nadiya also acknowledged the effect of the pandemic: “Baking has given us solace when times are really difficult.”
