Ian said: “There were about ten people, including two cameramen, a soundman, a food technologist, a BBC photographer and the rest, and they’d be busy re-taking shots, setting up the lighting, setting up tables and flowers, looking for good angles – it was immense.”

Nadiya came up with her own special twist on tradition.

“She made vegetable samosas out of the oatcakes – and they were brilliant,” said Ian.

“She used flour and water to seal the edges and deep fried them, so they crisped up on the outside and had the moist and slightly spicy vegetables on the inside. I can see them becoming a whole new product line. They were absolutely delicious.”

Nadiya’s British Food Adventure will air at 8.30pm.
