BBC Factual Orders New Cooking Series


BBC Factual has ordered Nadiya’s Cook Once, Eat Twice, helmed by celebrity chef and author Nadiya Hussain, for BBC Two and iPlayer.

Wall to Wall Media will produce the 6×30-minute series, which will see Hussain give guidance on how to make ingredients stretch, share her classic recipes and creatively repurpose leftovers. The show is set to debut later this year.

Hussain said, “Cook Once, Eat Twice really taps into the way I learned to cook growing up. Nothing ever went to waste but we always had vibrant, wonderful food on the table. I love the challenge of creating a meal out of food scraps or giving our leftovers a new lease of life. It’s so much fun, and it makes me feel good about the food I feed my family.”

Katy Fryer, executive producer for Wall to Wall Media, added, “We are delighted to be working with Nadiya again on another joyful series. Her playful recipes help us waste less, spend less and stretch our weekly shop to the max, while still delivering delicious meals for every occasion.”

Patrick McMahon, BBC commissioning editor, commented, “We’re thrilled to welcome Nadiya back for more delicious recipes that this time put her own unique spin on reducing food waste. We can’t wait to see what helpful hacks she has to help stretch our ingredients and save time in the kitchen while packing every mouthful with flavor.”
