Delicious Family Favourites from Nadiya Hussain
Have you ever looked for alternative recipes for black sesame seeds, star anise or mustard powder? Have you wanted to add a little twist to your family meals? Then look no further than the new cookbook from 2015 Great British Bake Off Winner Nadiya Hussain.
Parsnip & Orange Spiced Cake
Nadiya's Kitchen (Penguin, HB, £20) is a collection of over 100 of her favourite family recipes and includes delicious twists on classics such as Mustard Kale Mac & Cheese and Parsnip & Orange Spiced Cake - a twist on the traditional carrot cake but with added sweetness and flavour from the parsnips.
Peanut, Black Sesame & Ginger Brittle
Another ingenious idea is Peanut, Black Sesame & Ginger Brittle, with the black seeds giving extra theatre and the ginger adding a lovely warm kick. We're really keen to try out the the Chocolate Fondants with Star Anise too. The star anise is ground in a pestle & mortar and then passed through a fine sieve, creating a delicious fondant that is: "crusty on the outside, warm and gooey on the inside with the distinctive, lingering aroma of anise."
Cod & Clementine
Here at Steenbergs we are always trying to find new ways to add a bit of extra spice to our dishes and Nadiya definitely uses them with style and experience. Her unusual but delicious dish of Cod & Clementine, one of her Mum's regular recipes, includes a great combination of spices to liven up the fish, and the clementine peel adds a fresh, zesty finish.
The book is filled with chapters ranging from 'Lazy Sunday Mornings' to 'Midnight Feasts' and 'Snacks and Sharing' to 'Dessert for Dinner'. Sweet treats vie for attention with aromatic savoury snacks and we mustn't forget the famous birthday cake that Nadiya created for Her Majesty The Queen; a delight of orange, fondant and roses.
