@Mi-Amigo So how was bread week? Everything you were hoping for? I'll be able to talk about it all tomorrow morning but wondering if overall it was a good episode in your opinion Smiley Wink

I loved it. Paul was a bit naughty with one round but again the episode was great.

I won`t spoil it but will let you know what I thought after you`ve had a chance to see it and talk about it tomorrow.

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

On the other hand, bread week is my least favourite @EmilieT @Mi-Amigo , although I thought the showstopper was good. However......

Spoiler
I did think the part about making batches was poorly thought out, as they tended to judge the vegan burger filling more than the batch itself

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

I used to work at Warburton's Bakery and worked on every stage of the bread making process. I can honestly say that if I never saw another silo of flour or another machine that sliced and wrapped what you buy in the supermarkets, it would be too soon!

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

I still buy Warburtons bread, I think it's the best bread. Never buy supermarket's own brand because they are full of preservatives to give them better shelf life. Warbies bread is only good for a few days at most and any unsold go to the homeless shelters.

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

Next week will be another "first" on GBBO

 

Spoiler

 

- Dairy Week.

Apart from the usual signature bake at the beginning, the bakers will face a technical challenge, which consists of a complex recipe that dates back to Henry VIII; and then the showstopper to make a treat that is usually found at the centre of Indian weddings.

 

Sounds like it could be difficult but interesting.
