    Crisps In The Tent

    Crisps In The Tent

    Whilst much of the world is isolating at the moment, we thought it'd be a fantastic chance to catch up with some of the bakers we work with at Bake With A Legend, to hear about their baking experiences and memories from being on the Great British Bake Off.
    First up is Karen Wright, a much loved and memorable contestant from Series 9 (2018). Karen talks about eating crisps, cramming her baking knowledge before heading into the tent and grabbing opportunities on the other side of finishing the show.

    The Winner Bakes It All

    The Winner Bakes It All

    Whilst we loved the final, it's tinged with sadness as GBBO is over for another year. What a wonderful bunch of bakers overall and a well deserved champion now reigns. We look back on the series, Jane's memories of being in the final, and of course at this week in particular, with ultimate chocolate cakes, twice baked stilton soufflés and then some extraordinary deceptive feasts in the form of picnic baskets for us to analyse.

    It's not the worst week to go

    It's not the worst week to go

    The Semi-Final lived up to expectation with a highly enjoyable week in the tent as one of our bakers left at what Paul Hollywood said is the worst time to leave the show. Paul, I think you'll find that's actually the first week, but we get what you mean. We saw a signature of Domed Tartlets, a technical asking for a delicious looking Gateau St. Honore before some extraordinary sugar glass displays with edible depictions of something they hold dear to them for the showstopper.
    If you liked the look of the Gateau St. Honore in this weeks episode, why not come and learn how to make one with Howard on the 28th December 2019 here in London. Click here for more information and you can even use the code THEBAKEDOWN to get 10% off.

    Tarts and Vicars - (well an altar boy).

    The Quarter-Final was upon us this week as the traditionally challenging pastry week saw us lose a firm favourite from the tent. It all started off with a savoury tarte tatin, moved onto a thin sheet of brik pastry for a difficult technical and ended with a vertical pie showstopper, with varying degrees of success.

    I've been to a book festival

    The six remaining hopefuls are faced with Festival week as the tent starts by getting their buns out to the delight of Paul who can't resist getting his hand out - twice. Then it's off to Italy for some fried sicilian cassatelle, before we end with Malaysian inspired Kek Lapis Sarawak. No, we didn't know either.
    Howard and Jane offer their tips on getting a selfie with a Bake Off Star whilst we chat about the consistency of the judging this series.

YAYYY IT'S BACK!!

So excited to see that this is back on air! Even during the lock down. Can't wait for the next episode!! Helping me get through these strange times, so thank you!

Fantastic

So disappointed when this ended, really enjoyed the structure and Howard and Jane’s feedback on the show and their experiences on Bake Off too. It extended the Bake Off experience each week and as usual I’m sad that it’s over.
Fingers crossed for next year!

Brilliant

I absolutely loved this podcast. I enjoyed the questions I’ve always wanted to know being answered, the dissection of the bakes and some informative baking knowledge thrown in as well. I’m sad it’s over for another year but hopefully it will be back next year!!
