Nadiya Hussain's best savoury bakes


With the nights drawing in and the days getting cooler, less time spent outdoors means more time free for baking. Whether it's the prevalence of oozing melted cheese or the comforting nature of pastry in all its forms, there's something about savoury bakes that seems particularly appropriate for autumn, as this collection of recipes from Nadiya Hussain is here to prove. Extracted from Nadiya's cookbooks, including brand new release, Nadiya Bakes, these tarts, pies, buns and savoury doughnuts (!) are some of Nadiya's very best savoury creations.

Chicken, Brie, Cranberry and Pink Pepper Pithivier from Nadiya Bakes

With a simple chicken filling spiced with pink peppercorns and cranberries, around a gooey centre of melted Brie, this is pure decadence. A simple-to-make centrepiece for a special occasion.
