Great British Bake Off fans are still reeling after Mary Berry announced her departure from the show, but the BBC has just revealed that there’s some good news on the horizon.
Nadiya Hussain who won the sixth series of the show in 2015 is getting her own TV show on BBC Two, which will see her embark on a “culinary road trip” around the UK.
In each episode of the show, Hussain will visit a different region to take inspiration from farmers, growers, fishermen and “local heroes” who are reviving artisan food traditions. She’ll also use their local ingredients when creating recipes on the show.
The show will see the Bake Off winner travel across the country from the Scottish Highlands to Devon and Dorset as she explores the food scene in each region.
“Our countrys 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,” said Hussain in a statement.
“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,” she continued.
Eager fans will have to sit tight for the time being, however. The BBC has not yet revealed when we can expect to see the show on our TV screens.
