Celebrate special occasions all year round with sparkling stories and irresistible recipes by Nadiya, Britain's favourite baker.

Whether it's Valentine's Day, Holi or Chinese New Year, there are so many special moments to be enjoyed as a family throughout the year. And what better way to celebrate than to share stories, enjoy crafts and make delicious food with Nadiya, Britain's favourite baker?

Bake some Pumpkin Rattle Biscuits for Halloween, then read the story of a little girl and her pumpkin patch, make an sock bunny while your Easter Egg Rocky Road sets, or read about Friendship Day while your tear-and-share Monkey Bread is in the oven.

A unique combination of storybook and cookbook, with all recipes, stories and activities devised and written by Nadiya herself, Bake Me a Celebration Story combines playful photography of Nadiya and her children with vibrant illustrations by Clair Rossiter.

Let's celebrate and have some fun!

Everyone's favourite Bake Off winner is back with her blend of storytelling and tasty treats. This book is all about celebrations from around the world, so as well as yummy recipes for Spring Rolls, Rainbow Fudge, Jewelled Rice and Monkey Bread, there are craft activities and stories that celebrate Chinese New Year, Eid, Holi, Easter, Thanksgiving and many more.
With bright illustrations and a smart hardback finish, this is a real treat of a book that would make a great present for any blossoming bakers. The stories themselves are short and sweet with surprising dashes of modern life that catch you off guard and make you laugh - 'One day the family were lounging about. Loose Women was on the telly.' Even the traditional tales have these hints of modern life to shake things up, like the remote village between mountains where the Nian locusts swarm every year, a village so small 'you had to stand on one leg with your hands in the air to get a mobile signal.'
Like Nadiya herself, this book is full of joy and love for all things family and food.


Delightfully engaging
