Inside Nadiya Hussain’s publishing endeavors 

Nadiya Hussain is a published author who has written several different cookbooks: Nadiya’s Time to Eat, Nadiya’s Family Favourites, Nadiya’s Bake Me a Festive Story, Nadiya’s Kitchen, and Nadiya’s British Food Adventure. 

Though focusing mostly on her culinary endeavors when writing, Hussain has stepped into other areas of her life as an author. Hussain’s novel Finding My Voice is a memoir focusing on culture, religion, tradition, gender roles, and more. She discusses how the society she grew up in, and operates within, continues to mold her as an adult woman. 

Hussain also published a children’s book, My Monster & Me, which centers on a young boy and his worry monster, who follows him everywhere. The children’s book is an accessible take on anxiety for those of young ages. Outside of books, Hussain has contributed to The Guardian, BBC Good Food, The Telegraph, and Fabulous Magazine, as GoodtoKnow notes. In short, Hussain has accomplished a great deal since the show, and she has also managed to remain a TV personality; she’s got her own cooking show.
