Alumna to compete on Million Pound Menu

Hannah Adams is set to compete on BBC2 programme Million Pound Menu with her raw cookie dough café, Naked Dough.

Having launched in June 2017 as a pop-up in London’s Old Street underground station, Hannah and Naked Dough will be competing against 11 other restaurateurs in a six-part series.

Over a three-day trial in a pop-up restaurant in Manchester, Naked Dough will be working to convince a panel to invest in their business.

After the trial, the team will wait in anticipation to find out whether they have been able to secure the investment they need to roll out their products nationwide.

On their appearance on the show, Hannah said:

“Being part of Million Pound Menu has been such a fun experience and great exposure for Naked Dough. Our episode will air just as we announce our newest location in central London (watch this space!) so we’re really excited - it’s going to be a super-busy summer for us!”

Naked Dough offers a variety of unique cookie dough flavours, including “Unicorn Food”, with marshmallows and sprinkles, “Nuttin Better”, with peanut butter and crunched peanuts, and the “Nak-Ed Sheeran”, with salted caramel and honeycomb.

Over the course of the recent royal wedding, the new flavour “I Dough” was introduced to the menu, with white chocolate chips.

Hannah graduated from Loughborough in 2014 with a degree in Innovative Manufacturing Engineering.

We wish Hannah and the team the best of luck on the programme, which will air on BBC2 on 21 June at 9pm.
