LESS than a year after Nadiya Hussain’s successful cooking series, Nadiya’s Time to Eat, premiered on Netflix, the Great British Baking Show champion has another series coming to the streaming platform.

Nadiya Bakes, which starts streaming on February 12 on Netflix, invites viewers into Hussain’s kitchen where she makes an array of sweet recipes, from simple, everyday treats like freshly-baked bread to special-occasion desserts. “For me, baking really is my happy place, and I want it to be yours, too,” Hussain says. “There will be bakes for every occasion.”

Since winning The Great British Baking Show in 2015, Hussain has released a cookbook, Time to Eat, and a memoir, Finding My Voice.

She has also become a staple on BBC, starring in multiple shows, including the two-part docuseries The Chronicles of Nadiya, where she explores her culinary heritage in Bangladesh, as well as judging Junior Bake Off.
