Nadiya's Bake Me a Story: The Gingerbread Guy

Event 2 Friday 3 March, 11.30am-12.30pm Al Baraha 3, InterContinental

The Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain’s Bake Me a Story provides a new twist on fairy tale favourites – by matching them with her recipes so that parents and children can bake together!

In this enchanting storytelling session, Nadiya will share her take on classic tales, with stories including the ‘The Gingerbread Guy’, ‘Jack and the Bean-Patty Stalk’, and ‘Ruby-Red and the Three Bears’.

And what about a demonstration of our favourite baker’s showstopping talent? Nadiya will decorate a Gingerbread Guy on stage and then children will receive a gingerbread man of their own to take home!

Secret Lives and Summer Love: Contemporary Women’s Fiction

Event 35 Friday 3 March, 4.30pm-5.30pm Al Ras 2, InterContinental

Contemporary women’s fiction confronts serious issues with humour, compassion, and just the right amount of romance. Our panel discusses how to create a satisfying, original story and engaging characters while dealing with social problems relevant to women today.

April Hardy’s Sitting Pretty begins with a failed marriage and abrupt homelessness before taking a detour into the rich comic terrain of petsitting for the wealthy; new novel Kind Hearts & Coriander centres on a bereaved woman’s plan to find out the truth about her father by infiltrating his quirky hotel, only to find friendship and possible romance among the staff.

Nadiya Hussain’s The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters is a family saga featuring four sisters from the only Muslim family in a quaint British village. Each sister is already struggling with her own secret, but family tragedy forces them to pull together.

Sue Moorcroft’s award-wining novels – from All That Mullarkey, which begins with the literal writing on the wall for a doomed marriage, to The Christmas Promise, whose heroine makes a life-changing promise without even realising it – are famous for balancing authentic struggle with reassuring warmth. Her new book Just for the Holidays will be published in May.
