In Nadiya’s Summer Feasts: Nadiya cooks up an array of mouth-watering dishes that she serves up to her loved ones at her own summer party feast. For Nadiya, summertime is party time, and is the perfect excuse to put her busy life on hold and pull out all the stops.
Nadiya’s Summer Feasts
Nadiya fires up the BBQ and cooks a delicious butterflied leg of lamb with sticky rhubarb glaze, perfect for feeding a crowd without all the fuss. Colourful sides include zingy kiwi and feta salad, fresh and fragrant edamame wild rice, and a spectacular glazed bread, stuffed with black olive and blue cheese and shaped like a crown. For dessert, Nadiya goes all out with a magical princess torte cake, and her ingenious raspberry ripple eclair pops provide a spectacular centrepiece to ensure her summer party goes off with a bang.
Every summer feast needs a thirst-quenching drink and when the sun is shining Nadiya’s tipple of choice is an elderflower cooler. To find out how elderflowers are produced she heads to the UK’s largest plantation in the Vale of Belvoir, where she joins an army of local pickers as they help to bring the harvest home. In search of inspiration for a refreshing dessert, Nadiya meets legendary cookery writer Claudia Roden and her family, who are putting a fresh spin on the classic ice-lolly. And at Nancarrow farm in Cornwall, Nadiya rolls up her sleeves and helps cook up an epic feast for over 100 people where everything is cooked on fire.
