Talking about the latest episodes and bakes of Love Production’s The Great British Bake Off. We talk about the star baker, who left, favourite moments, best tie-in advertising, and our attempts at the recipes.
2020 Episode 10 - Final and Walnut Whirls
We come to the Great British Bake Off final. Vose parents are in luck as the bakes are very much in their flavours, plus we have good discussion on decisions for bakes and the quality of challenges in the final. #WorthTheCalories
2020 Episode 9 - Patissiere and Cornucopia
Tempers are stretched this week as we watch chocolate cooling, burn ourselves on caramel, and build more cakes than we've ever had in the house before! The Great British Bake Off semi final also brings some intense discussion about the judging of each episode. #WorthTheCalories
2020 Episode 8 - Desserts and Sussex Pond Puddings
Things get steamy in the tent and the Vose household on dessert week. The Great British Bake Off Quarter Finals produce a shocking technical, and a group of bakers who cannot be separated. #WorthTheCalories
2020 Episode 7 - 80s and Doughnuts
80s week brings quiche and doughnuts. Thankfully not at the same time. It also brings one of the hottest days of the year. What a lovely day to make ice cream cake. #WorthTheCalories
2020 Episode 6 - Japanese and Matche Mille Crêpe
In Japanese week we may be a little down on or wanting to replace one of the judges, and the theme. But we also have our own ideas for what we would make in the challenges, and a lot of time for the remaining bakers. #WorthTheCalories
2020 Episode 5 - Pastry and Eclairs
In pastry week some people struggle with the brief for a pasty, a tart, and generally for choux pastry in eclairs. Cathryn makes a beautiful blackberry and lemon tart, Matthew gets to eat it! #WorthTheCalories
For a great NY bagel, you need a very hot oven, I think brick oven traditional. Pizza ovens are used too. Must be at least partially crispy on the outside. Chewy, not like a roll inside.

The best gbbo podcast.
One of my only must-listen podcasts. I find myself talking back as if the hosts are friends. So much great insight, research, and humor.
