ON OUR COVER this week is the engaging and talented Nadiya Hussain, a down-to-earth working mum who also happens to be a TV star. Nadiya talks to Jane Garvey about the weight of responsibility she feels being a role model for so many different people – women, people of colour, working mothers and Muslims. She also tells Jane that six years after she won The Great British Bake Off, and despite the efforts of the broadcasting industry to improve equality of representation in front of and behind the camera, she’s usually the only woman of colour in the room at production meetings and on set. Food for thought, but as well as talking points Nadiya also serves up two delicious recipes. Read the interview on page 8, and you can hear more…

say it loud and proud

SHOULD WE ALL be poets? Spoken word, which includes storytelling and reading poetry aloud, was probably the first art form humankind developed. The oral tradition is much older than the written one, and although I would never set them against each other, the oral tradition is more accessible. We started this tradition as soon as we started using language, by telling stories, embellishing them – then making them sound great. Spoken word poetry can help us. It can fix many of the things that make our lives seem impossible. Over the past two years I have seen and heard people, especially young people, using the spoken word to express things that they couldn’t express before. Mental illness, domestic violence, rape, gender issues, racial issues, issues about the meaning of life, even…

WHAT WE WATCHED One-time Brat Pack star Rob Lowe had grown up and was starring alongside Natasha Richardson and Maggie Smith in a BBC2 production of Tennessee Williams’s Suddenly Last Summer (repeated this Sunday, 10.30pm BBC4). “I’m a very old 29. I’ve seen a lot,” the actor said, though he wasn’t exactly keen to address the sex-tape scandal that had rocked his career in 1988. “It’s been tough, a long and painful lesson. I know it’s what everyone else wants to talk about, but I don’t.” By the end of the 90s, Lowe had a regular role in The West Wing and can now be seen on Sky Witness in the US emergency-services procedural drama 9-1-1 Lone Star. WHAT YOU SAID “Why the deluge of drama depicting white, middle-aged, ugly male protagonists, either…

‘I have a responsibility to people who relate to me. People of colour. Muslims. Women. Stay-at-home mums’NADIYA HUSSAIN THERE’S A SHOCK in store in the first episode of Nadiya Hussain’s new BBC2 cookery show Nadiya’s Fast Flavours. Macaroni cheese purists, you may need to sit down. I know the old favourite has been rebranded mac ’n’ cheese in recent years, which was bad enough – but her twist on the ultimate comfort food may have you reaching for the smelling salts. She suggests crunching cheese puffs into the sauce. I know, I know – 2021 has been quite a year, hasn’t it? Obviously, I challenged her. She laughs: “If you’re going to have a mac ’n’ cheese, what’s the point in cutting back? You’ve got to throw everything at it. For me,…

mac and cheesy

I HAVE A DOZEN different ways to make mac and cheese and I happily share each version every chance I get. This is my kids’ slightly psychedelic version, made using their favourite puffed cheesy crisps, which they used to devour as youngsters. The extra cheesiness and bright orange colour from the cheese puffs blitzed to a powder is mixed with the mac and topped with breadcrumbs. It’s fun, it’s delicious and it’s bright!
