Two staff are reported as being employed. Nadiya owns the business and runs it with her IT manager husband of 16 years, Abdal.

The TV chef recently revealed how growing up in an environment where men were considered the biggest earners has impacted her own parenting. 

The mother-of-three, who has two teen boys, Musa, 15, and Dawud, 14, and a daughter, Maryam, 11, told Good Housekeeping last month tthat she is ‘drumming financial independence’ into her daughter.

And while she used to struggled with feeling like there was no space for her, the TV personality added she now is ‘owning’ her career. 

‘When I was growing up, men were revered,’ the baker explained. 

‘They were the ones who were going to carry the family name and who were going to be financially better off than the women.

However, Nadiya said that she’s relieved things have now changed for her as a mother.

‘I’m not raising my boys to be stronger than my girl; they are equals. The one difference is that I drum into my daughter the importance of financial independence,’ she said. 

The baker admitted struggling with her own demons in the past, especially as she explored presenting and writing jobs.  

‘I was known as a baker, so it was really nerve-racking,’ she admitted, adding she feels she is ‘much more than just a baker.’

‘I think it is really important, especially as women, to show that we are multifaceted, and to not be afraid of taking that leap into an environment that you don’t think you fit into,’ she said. 

‘I jumped into a world that I thought had no space for me – and now I own it,’ she added.

However, the mother-of-three also spoke of fans expectations and the pressure that comes with being a role model for so many. 

‘I’m not going to say I take it in my stride and it’s really easy, because it’s tough and it weighs heavy,’ she admitted. 

‘Everybody wants to see the perfect version of you within every community, and I’m definitely not perfect,’ she added.
