BBC Factual has announced Nadiya’s Cook Once, Eat Twice (6×30’), produced by Wall to Wall Media, coming to BBC Two later this year.

In the new series, TV chef Nadiya Hussain is “showing the country how you can make your ingredients stretch further than you could ever imagine by sharing recipes that align with her philosophy ‘cook once and eat twice’.”

Each week Nadiya will cook two inventive ‘Cook Once, Eat Twice’ recipes. The first being a classic Nadiya recipe and the second being a quickfire recipe that is created using the leftovers. Across the rest of the programme there will be three more recipes offering solutions of how to cook more efficiently and economically,

The programme will also show how other cooks and chefs are tapping into the trend of utilising leftovers and food scraps and turning them into “mouth-watering creations that demonstrate how simple it is to be cost-savvy, whilst doing our bit to help to save the planet one recipe at a time. “

Nadiya Hussain says “Cook Once, Eat Twice really taps into the way I learnt 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, says “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, says: “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 flavour.”
