Episode notes

In the very first episode of Life on a Plate, Jimi and Alison beam into the kitchen of Nadiya Hussain, trail-blazing winner of The Great British Bake Off 2015. A whirlwind of creativity, Nadiya has written five cookbooks, broadcast six TV series and even produced several children’s books since then, while also working to foster better public conversations about anxiety and mental health. As well as asking how she does it, Jimi and Alison talk to her about eating cake for the first time, overcoming fear and making space for a new generation of cooks and bakers.  Nadiya’s new book Nadiya Bakes is out now and you can follow her on Instagram @nadiyajhussain and on Twitter @nadiya_official To find out more about the series go to Host: Jimi Famurewa Co-host: Alison Oakervee Producer: Sera Berksoy Executive Producer: Nikki Duffy A John Brown production for Waitrose & Partners
