My knowledge only covers Netflix US-aired seasons which are the English Bake Off seasons 4/5/6 (it's confusing I know)

Let us now discuss Russet Gandalfs, bread lions, genoese sponges & why you dont throw your baked alaska in the bin

so weird seeing it called "baking show", it's like calling 30 rock "television building"

The Dorrett thing is SO SAD

I always scream when people drop their food, or like a layer falls off the top off a cake - I don't know why, it makes me really nervous, like watching a small child on a really tall climbing frame.

Chuck_Tatum, Wednesday, 1 March 2017 09:13 (three years ago) link

Mr Veg found the first 3 seasons of Bake-Off for me on the t0rentz

Season 1 format is rather different! The tent travels round to different cities, they eliminate 2 bakers each episode, and Sue and Mel do a lot of 'history of the biscuit' 'history of the cake' interstitial stuff during challenges so it's not 100% baking heavy the way it is now. Which isn't great, cuts too much into the baking which is the best part. Also episode 1 inside the tent was shot very jumpily, and not very well light, so it wasn't nearly as colorful as it quickly became in the next episode. Thankfully they fixed that pretty quick.
Mary Berry's hair is very flat!
Bakers call out to the judges and ask how much time is left!
And there's some dude doing the voiceover which is v weird.

Favorite moment so far was Ep 1 with Sue sitting on a blanket inside a stone ring with an eccentric-voiced longhaired baking historian discussing bannocks and I have NO idea how she sat through that without bursting into gales of laughter. I wish I could find a photo of him.

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 6 March 2017 02:12 (three years ago) link

oh and:
signature bakes are a little bit looser: bake any kind of cake, bake any kind of biscuit
technicals so far have been basics like victoria sponges or scones, but the bakers are given the ingredients only: no method at all

and there's a weird little canteen area in back where bakers can go up and ask for items, one lady ran over and asked for double cream.

it's kind of fun seeing how it's all evolved!

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 6 March 2017 02:15 (three years ago) link

god the showstoppers are out of control on S1

SIX different types of bread rolls, half a dozen each! 3 savory, 3 sweet

SIX canapes, 3 savory, 3 sweet, half a dozen each!

Three puddings: suet, baked, crumble!

they must have drowned in leftovers, holy shit

i would have ptsd after these

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 6 March 2017 05:55 (three years ago) link

it is crazy how good this show is at building flopsweat tension around some of the lowest stakes imaginable

frankie r. failson (bizarro gazzara), Monday, 6 March 2017 11:47 (three years ago) link

Every week has the "are they going to complete this in time for the judges" montage before the end of the round, and ALMOST EVERY TIME it's completely fine, and yet it worries me every single episode

Chuck_Tatum, Monday, 6 March 2017 14:57 (three years ago) link

totally!! it's a very chill show compared to top chef etc but I still get stressed out

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 6 March 2017 16:40 (three years ago) link

s1 almost done

- can't STAND ruth and it makes me feel bad bc shes a good baker etc. idk. buu her stupid "boy bait" pudding and making quiche for the finale "for the men" it's like she's pandering to paul and it drives me barmy

-they have clearly done some work reigning in paul bc he was a borderline WANKER in this season. key moment: dismissed ruth's cupcakes as too girly AS THE ONLY MAN ON A PANEL OF WOMEN!! and farting on about stuff looking commercial & professional ragh i love him now but i could slap him almost once every episode

- mary berry telling miranda she reminded her of hrself when she was young <3 that would make my life

Hi! I'm watching the Netflix season now, and it's so refreshing watching a reality competition without any producer-mandated villains.

Also, I forget who said it, but when I heard somebody mention "roasted veg" I got a good chuckle.

Also also I have a crush on Kate.

Downtown Julie Mau (Leee), Thursday, 9 March 2017 22:10 (three years ago) link

Like she is more Captain Chaos than Jordan ever was.

Downtown Julie Mau (Leee), Thursday, 9 March 2017 22:11 (three years ago) link

Also also also I decided to put closed captions on because SO MANY ACCENTS, but even with the subtitles, I still have no clue what the contestants are talking about.

Downtown Julie Mau (Leee), Thursday, 9 March 2017 22:12 (three years ago) link

Kate is v cool but def has captain chaos tendencies

Though lets be real, the *true* Captain Chaos is Jordan Crazy Teeth

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 9 March 2017 23:57 (three years ago) link

Maybe Jordan didn't last long enough to impress his chaos on me, but with Kate, she's up one week, then down the next, then oh noes her dough is still raw and yet she ends up in second place anyway! She is a roller coaster!

Downtown Julie Mau (Leee), Friday, 10 March 2017 02:41 (three years ago) link

I dunno I just picture Jordan covered head to foot in flour with a saucepan burning in the background

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 10 March 2017 03:29 (three years ago) link

Kate's hair fascinated me. Like this amazing curly braided amazingness. And she seemed like she'd be cool to hang out with

Speaking of hair, Chetna's haircut is soooo stylish, love it.

Very distracted by Deborah and those pictures of her husband and child which are just really hard to make sense of given her apparent age.

change display name (Jordan), Tuesday, 14 March 2017 20:07 (three years ago) link

And why are there only photos to show? Did she steal someone else's photos like she steals ingredients??

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 14 March 2017 22:41 (three years ago) link

I finished Season 2 of English bake off & it's pretty marvellous

Jo's such a love - bubbly but terrified, Essex mum finally doing "something for herself". I read online that her husband was doing 16 years in jail for money laundering at the time. Which just made me love her more. she seemed like she mightve had a hard life & that confirmed it

and MaryAnne!! What a treat. Rugby champion, baking historian, mum, wizard. Amazing. She has a book!

Janet was hilarious - mr veg said her facial expressions reminded him of Beaker from the muppets

lots of great women in this season.

As for the guys -

dreamboat Rod turned out to be a bit of a disaster, very disorganized, bit too cavalier. he definitely put the wind up Paul, I've never seen the silver fox come down on a baker like he did with Rod.

sweet baby Jason had sooooooo much potential, very talented for one so young but was just a tad too green for the big leagues. Definitely fun to watch though.

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 14 March 2017 22:52 (three years ago) link

I just finished the Chetna season! I really admired Richard for his ability to laugh at himself, and it was sad to see him crumble in the last week, though I would've been fine with any of the final three winning. (When they showed a picture of a young Richard with a full head of hair, I can see why Veg might crush on him!)

One episode into the next season, and watching Ruby struggle with her lack of self-confidence is so painful (I empathize with her completely), I'm not sure I can handle a whole season's worth (I caught a random episode of this season on PBS and know she hangs around for at least a little while).

Downtown Julie Mau (Leee), Tuesday, 14 March 2017 23:59 (three years ago) link

Rubes is one of my favorites, I love her so much.

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 15 March 2017 02:01 (three years ago) link

She looks like the daughter of Saffron Burrows and Elizabeth Berkeley, plus her look of utter astonishment when she was Star Baker in bread week was lolz.

That aside, this cast is so much less likeable than the previous one! So many stubborn people and/or people whose insecurities are showing. :(

Downtown Julie Mau (Leee), Wednesday, 15 March 2017 03:48 (three years ago) link

Yeah... it grew on me though. Francis is kind of a crazy sorcerer with her amazing showstoppers, i'm in awe of her creativity

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 15 March 2017 03:56 (three years ago) link

Slight crush on Kimberley from that season. And Howard is all-time great.

Richard had a weird Martin Freeman vibe, I thought

It's fun to joke about graham crackers and shredded wheat and Kellogg's obsession with masturbation and cold-water baths (a fit subject for mockery imo) but there were parents who actually genitally mutilated their daughters based on his crackpot unqualified medical advice so as usual history is terrible and everything is complicated.

The brownies challenge was so frustrating to watch. YOU’RE ALL TRYING TOO HARD

sound of scampo talk to me (El Tomboto), Saturday, 17 October 2020 19:54 (three days ago) link

but, as someone pointed out, it was a SIGNATURE challenge and your signature can't be 'plain brownies'

koogs, Saturday, 17 October 2020 19:58 (three days ago) link

That’s why it’s a bad challenge, like the fucking rainbow bagels. “We challenge you to mess around with something that is quite perfect in its simplest and most straightforward form”

sound of scampo talk to me (El Tomboto), Saturday, 17 October 2020 20:01 (three days ago) link

Matt's bit about how Prue tells you to make a white chocolate cake then always says "It's a bit sweet isn't it? perhaps you could temper it a bit with some mud" killed me

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Saturday, 17 October 2020 20:17 (three days ago) link

yes that was very otm

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 17 October 2020 20:36 (three days ago) link

Brownies are American and the best ones in the UK are made by Outsider Tart in West London.

My cream cheese brownies are the closest thing I have to a signature bake and if Brexit Pru told me they were inappropriately dry I’d have taken a scimitar to her.

santa clause four (suzy), Saturday, 17 October 2020 22:16 (three days ago) link

yeah i am not sure that paul & pru are to be trusted on brownies. “gooey center” isnt what i’d look for in a brownie. fudgey/moist but not gooey.

but i’d also not cover them in frosting & italian meringue either so

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 17 October 2020 22:39 (three days ago) link

cream cheese brownies sound amazing, suzy? will you part w the recipe?

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 17 October 2020 22:39 (three days ago) link

they do sound amazing

Dan S, Saturday, 17 October 2020 22:54 (three days ago) link

the pistachio/fig upside down brownie seemed like a great way of fancying it up and adding sweetness without going OTT. nuts are moderately common in brownies, pistachios just a little fancier, and the green of the nutflesh complemented the pink & green of the fig - which ended up one of the smallest toppings of anything in that round? and apparently tasted good enough that they forgot to be mad that it stopped the crisp top from forming!

Covidiots from UHF (sic), Saturday, 17 October 2020 22:55 (three days ago) link

italian meringue topping sounded like a promising complement tbh, but not as it was done, by putting an entire meringue on top of each brownie slice

Covidiots from UHF (sic), Saturday, 17 October 2020 22:56 (three days ago) link

I am hopefully awaiting that recipe, too!

Boo at this week's elimination. Far too soon.

I once made a cream cheese brownie that was white chocolate flavoured with saffron (so it turned yellow) and with pistachios. I had a similar problem to Sura in that white chocolate takes ages to bake.

You don’t get a flaky top on marbled cream cheese brownies.

santa clause four (suzy), Saturday, 17 October 2020 23:12 (three days ago) link

this week's loser charming and funny on Extra Slice. they'll be missed.

i loved sura's sense of humour - did not want to see her go. Nor Lottie.

things i was not aware of being commonly known in American and lesser known in the UK: babka, smores and graham crackers in general.

I had my first smore this summer, i am 45, it was delicious. All the cookbooks I own suggest our digestive biscuits are okay substitutes for graham crackers, but I always loved Teddy Grahams during trips to the US. I want to make babka, have seen it in upscale bakeries and my partner was saying we all split a slice three ways when my daughter was tiny because it was like £4 or something.

Walter Draggedman (stevie), Sunday, 18 October 2020 06:29 (two days ago) link

There’s a few great Jewish bakeries in Temple Fortune where you can get a good babka as nature intended (last time I went up there I bought a huge bag of mini sesame and poppyseed bagels for maybe £4 and got through them in about a week).

santa clause four (suzy), Sunday, 18 October 2020 11:02 (two days ago) link

One of the things I do like about this season is that the bakes are a bit easier and you could vaguely imagine doing them at home. Also, they look like they are worth doing at home, unlike some of the ones (particularly technicals) they've done in the past, where you wonder why anyone would bother when they could just make a nice cake.

Like, babkas look like something you could do yourself at home fairly easily, and you'd be glad you'd bothered.

I'm sure they deliberately dialled it down in response to the strange filming conditions, but it is kind of cool for the audience. I think, anyway.

trishyb, Sunday, 18 October 2020 11:13 (two days ago) link

In previous years people could practice at home and in private (but had to pay for every expense themselves) but this year they have a practice kitchen to use in the week, but there might be a down side to other contestants seeing your progress.

santa clause four (suzy), Sunday, 18 October 2020 11:17 (two days ago) link

Hendon, where I grew up, is not good for much but it’s good for babka

Chuck_Tatum, Sunday, 18 October 2020 11:37 (two days ago) link

Still upset about this week’s elimination. Very northwest London vibes there

Chuck_Tatum, Sunday, 18 October 2020 11:38 (two days ago) link

I think she’s Turkish? Could be Wembley, but also send more inner zones to me, eg. Kilburn/Queen’s Park/Kensal Rise.

santa clause four (suzy), Sunday, 18 October 2020 11:52 (two days ago) link

we really really liked her and are bummed she's gone ;_;

but agreed that this crew is really enjoyable overall! the baking has generally been less dazzling, i think we can safely blame that on the quarantine conditions, but that actually brings things back down to earth a bit, this is a show about great amateurs after all. still, the brownie challenge was oddly brutal to watch - has there ever been a challenge like that, where EVERYONE tanks it? i liked seeing the sort of morose/gallows humor vibe in the aftermath. obviously raised the stakes considerably for the other challenges.

not into Matt, a few isolated moments aside. but i wasn't into Noel at first (in fact i'm not sure i watched all of the Noel/Sandi seasons?) and i feel like he's settled in a bit. but Noel seems like more of a boost to the contestants' spirits, whereas Matt is constantly demanding their attention during stressful moments. this ep he was visibly annoying Laura (i think that's her name?) (the beautiful blonde woman with the brick pizza oven in her back garden) as she had the oven open to check on her bake, and it was the same thing with Lottie a few weeks ago. i'd be pissed - get out of my space, man!

Doctor Casino, Sunday, 18 October 2020 12:46 (two days ago) link

Yeah, Noel lets the contestant lead the horseplay, whereas Matt just turns up to do a bit, or a silly voice. Reminds me of a lot of insufferable but nice drama kids I’ve met. He’s not too bad, though.

Chuck_Tatum, Sunday, 18 October 2020 14:14 (two days ago) link

Noel puts people off all the time. Sometimes he points out that he's doing it and says things like 'you'd like me to go away now wouldn't you'

I used to swear by Pru's big generalist cookbook but she's no fun compared to Mary

1000 Scampo DJs (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 18 October 2020 15:17 (two days ago) link

Mary on drums for Rick Astley at a festival is definitely a vibe, also she’s actual posh rather than whatever the nexus of money, Brexit and London Tory that makes Prue. Mary either voted Remain or didn’t vote at all. As for Paul, he’s the male, god-bothering version of Esther McVey down to his boot cut jeans.

santa clause four (suzy), Sunday, 18 October 2020 15:26 (two days ago) link

I think she’s Turkish?

Sura? I think she's Persian/Iranian, no?

I thought she said Turkish the other week but not certain

1000 Scampo DJs (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 18 October 2020 15:39 (two days ago) link

on extra slice she said she liked to add a taste of home and then mentioned iran, turkey and something else, which i didn't catch.

koogs, Sunday, 18 October 2020 15:47 (two days ago) link

Having lived and worked in Tehran for a few months, my sister retains an inherent pro-Iranian bias... which is a large part of why Sura was her favourite contestant.

mike t-diva, Sunday, 18 October 2020 15:49 (two days ago) link

"i really wanted to show the world this is iran, and this is iraq, and this is turkey and this is my heritage"

Kurdish. Gotta be - she also has Turkish evil eyes 🧿 on her Insta blurb.

santa clause four (suzy), Sunday, 18 October 2020 17:15 (two days ago) link

Either way, I'll miss her gentle but ruthless pisstaking, which is the thing that struck me as very north-london-y. Lottie is sort of similar, with the obligatory Sussex hippie edge.

At the start of the episode, I said to my partner, "it's definitely Sura & Lotte in the final this year"

Chuck_Tatum, Sunday, 18 October 2020 17:29 (two days ago) link

You killed them, Chuck.

santa clause four (suzy), Sunday, 18 October 2020 17:31 (two days ago) link

A total late convert here - I'm already bellowing stuff at the screen. I was totally team Sura. It'll have to be Lottie from here.

My gossip is that my mate in Cornwall has recently been paired with Marc on Tinder. I will not be drawn on lurid details.

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Sunday, 18 October 2020 17:42 (two days ago) link

which Mark?

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 18 October 2020 17:54 (two days ago) link

Cornish Marc! The one who's kids turned up last week. Frequently gets emotional.

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Sunday, 18 October 2020 17:56 (two days ago) link

Mary is champion of home-baking and always had a vein of kindness in her critique, i mean unless you served her beetroot black forest cake she would often find a way to praise the effort or find something positive to encourage them to keep trying

she brought good “grandma energy”

Prue kinda brings boarding-school-art-teacher energy which is not necessarily steeped in kindness or encouragement

Also can i just say Paul is rubbish at judging decoration of cakes like “hurm yes v symmetrical good job” rmde such a bread-dude

was mad that he said laura’s cake looked crap or w/e i thought that big white choc ruffle on top looked really amazing!

Yeah, I felt really bad for her when he said that. It was mean. Like, that decoration wouldn't be to my own personal taste, but you have to appreciate the effort and skill that went into it. Stick to rises and crumbs, Paul, and leave the bow critiques to Patrick and Esme on the Sewing Bee.

trishyb, Sunday, 18 October 2020 23:43 (two days ago) link

Yeah the only fault for Laura's decorations is that they were a little hard to make out, since they were all the same shade.
