British pubcaster BBC2 is preparing to plate a cooking series with The Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain and a culinary travel show about America’s Route 66.

Television personality and baker Nadiya Hussain (pictured) will offer up time-saving kitchen hacks in Time to Eat with Nadiya.

Produced by Wall to Wall Media, the 6 x 30-minute series features Hussain as she reveals budget-friendly recipes that can be made any day of the week. Trying out these dishes will be employees in the 24-hour non-stop world of food producers who make the time-saving ingredients Hussain loves to cook with.

Additionally, in each episode she’ll be put to work so that she can learn the process of what goes into picking, collecting or making one of her shortcut ingredients.

Hussain will also help out households who struggle to find the time to cook. She’ll meet everyone from firefighters to busy working families, and she will teach each of them a time-saving recipe

Series executive producers are Katy Fryer and Anna Miralis. Time to Eat with Nadiya was commissioned by BBC2 controller Patrick Holland and David Brindley, head of commissioning, popular factual and fact ent. The commissioning executive is Ricky Cooper.
