Nadiya Hussain, who baked her way to victory in the 2015 Great British Bake Off, will be hosting her first cooking demonstration in Leeds, in the Merrion Centre on December 10. Nadiya, who lived with her husband and three children in Leeds until recently, will be teaching shoppers how to make some of her delicious recipes, including cheese and tomato spiral biscuits and cardamom and coconut whoopie pies. Retailers will also be offering a selection of baked treats free. “I’ve lived in Leeds for the last 10 years and it’s an honour to host my own bakery session in a familiar venue. Winning the Bake Off means I’ve been travelling lots and had some great opportunities, but despite this, being back in Leeds, in recognisable surroundings, is really comforting.” Shoppers are welcome to come along and meet Nadiya in the Merrion Centre, at the demo kitchen in front of Santa’s Grotto, between 12.30 – 3pm on December 10.
