The fact Nadiya's Time to Eat gleefully takes shortcuts, "cheats", and considers the means and abilities of its audience gives it a likable working-class of-the-people sensibility that most cooking shows don't possess

Feel-good cooking series has cool hacks, great role model.

Nadiya's Time to Eat might just be a simple cooking show hosted by a charismatic TV personality, but it also feels like a balm for the soul in 2020.

Apr 30, 2020 | Full Review…

Nadiya is offering quick recipes, and some are weird, frankly... But still, she is a delight.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

That's a lovely premise, good enough on its own to support a full series.

Audience Reviews for Nadiya's Time to Eat: Season 1

    I'm wondering if my perspective comes from the fact that I really don't get British or western cuisine. As as Indian, I don't think it's rocket science to make quick, easy meals, which are also nutritious. I completely understand how people can be hard pressed for time and might not have the funds to create elaborate meals every day, so a show with a basic premise like this one is quite welcome. But it's important, especially in a country where obesity and the consumption of unhealthy food is on the rise, to promote healthy eating and an appreciation for cooking and where food comes from. Children can be taught how to help in the kitchen, making cooking in itself a family activity. I appreciated the segment at the end where she visits factories and farms although it became clear that it was doubling up as convenient product placements. The nagging question of sustainability was always quickly brushed aside. In the dairy farm, nothing was asked about the male calves and what happens to them. No wonder though, because most of the savory recipes were meat heavy. If not, they had few vegetables, too much fat, refined flour, sugar, and other animal products (dairy and eggs). If I did want to feed my family some unhealthy 'treats', then I'd rather do that only on special occasions, but spend a bit of time and make something exquisite and worth savoring. There were two of three 'hacks' that were repeated time and time again. Bake, use cheats, and use the same basic ingredients to make more than one dish. The last one is a good idea in principle, but you end up losing out on diversity in your food. What I could recommend about the show is the bright, colourful sets, the presentation of the food (where even greasy, processed meat-filled dishes were made to look beautiful), and Nadiya herself. I don't really know her apart from the Great British Bakeoff and another show that she co-hosted, but she comes across as someone down-to-earth and funny.

    I wouldn't say I liked the show much. I liked her colorful kitchen and how the filming looked very vibrant because of all those color splashes. But her recipes were massive torture to my brain and eyes. In this era of health consciousness, we should be mindful of what we eat, especially what we feed our kids. Your food doesn't need to be unhealthy, just because you don't have enough time. There are hundreds of youtube contents where you can learn to prepare quick and healthy food in less than half an hour. I just didn't get why she has got a full-on Netflix show for teaching people quick and easy unhealthy recipes. Her pancake preparation with all those sugar, white flour, jams & peanut butter made my gut creep. And that egg roll soaked with oil upside down which could have been made healthier if she just wouldn't fry the tortilla in the oil. And I would rather feed my kids' boiled vegetables than that instant noodles. Kids are kids, human kids, not cattle that you would just feed whatever just because you don't have time. We need to teach them to eat healthy and right from the very beginning. However, it was massive time waste for me watching her show but at least it helped me to know what I wouldn't be feeding my kids.
