Are you as in love with The Great British Baking Show (GBBS) as I am? Have you ever dreamed of being under the big white tent baking your heart out for Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry? Even now that Mary’s gone, I often imagine myself dreaming up new flavor combinations in hopes of wowing Prue and defiantly meeting Paul’s steely gaze.
So I’ve had a Julie & Julia moment. You know, the 2009 movie about the young woman who decides to spend a year cooking her way through Julia Child’s The Art of French Cooking and blogging about it? Yes, that one. I’ve decided to embark on my own odyssey—my own Great British Baking Challenge—to attempt to create my own version of each of the bakes that the contestants have had to produce for the judges under the tent for every season—at least for the seasons they’ve let us watch in the U.S. so far. (For more details about which season is which, see this post.) And I hope that you will join me! Read more about my challenge and how you can bake along with me as I bake through the Bake Off here.
