Change Patisserie Plans At Your Peril

Nov 18, 2020

We had all sorts of mess, plenty of perfection and ultimately one baker who we thought would excel at patisserie heading home at the penultimate hurdle as we saw our final four made Savarin, Cornucopia and a Cube Cake. We digest a week of mixed fortunes as two bakers excelled towards the final which seems hard to call.

Whilst we are sad the series is coming to an end, we’re going to be celebrating with a special online event on Saturday 28th November 2020 and we hope you’ll join us.

Firstly, Dan Beasley Harling will be leading a free webinar teaching you how to make the perfect scone, so you can bake along with us for around an hour at 7.30pm to give you a little flavour of what a class with us entails and then at 8.45pm, Dan will be joined by Howard and Jane where we’ll all reflect on the 2020 Series of Bake Off and we’ll take your questions. You do have to register if you want to attend that but it’s absolutely free – click here to sign up if you’d like to attend.

Peter Is Studying Ancient History

Nov 4, 2020

The 7th week of Bake Off 2020 left Howard feeling a little uncertain as to quite how ‘1980s’ it was really was, but after making a quiche, some finger doughnuts and an ice cream cake, we can’t deny we were in need of eating something sweet as we watched Hermine become the seventh different star baker in as many weeks.

We saw Laura forget to turn on a button which almost saw her bid farewell to the tent, but in the end it was Lottie’s cassette tape that wasn’t functioning properly as the star baker from just a week ago was given her marching orders, leaving us with five bakers for our quarter-final.

Josh, Jane, Howard and Dan Beasley Harling recorded this podcast remotely via Zoom. We’d like your questions and comments to keep us going. Hit us up at thebakedown@bakewithalegend.com and we’ll read out your comments on the upcoming episodes.

Twenty Crimps on your Pasty

Oct 21, 2020

Pastry Week started off with a challenge to make Cornish Pasties, which put the pressure on poor Marc, because he lives in Cornwall, so therefore apparently his was expected to be much better than everyone else’s! Paul even asked how many crimps they should have, but then wasn’t quite sure himself! The technical challenge saw them tasked with making an eclair and for all we know Linda is still working up her 864th batch of choux pastry. Finally the showstopper saw the bakers make a caged tart before Paul and Prue handed over a 5th different star baker of the series whilst we were left with only seven bakers in the tent.

Josh, Jane and Howard were joined by the brilliant Dan Beasley Harling once more – as we recorded this podcast remotely via Zoom. We’d like your questions and comments to keep us going in the new series. Hit us up at thebakedown@bakewithalegend.com and we’ll read out your comments on the upcoming episodes.

The Lighthouse Lives On

Sep 30, 2020

Biscuit Week! Fancy Florentines, Mouthwatering Macaroons and a beautiful 3D biscuit table setting to represent a memorable meal the bakers had in the past, were the name of the game this week, as the 11 members of the Bake Off biosphere battled out to make it through to Week 3.

After the fallen upside down pineapple cakes trauma, Dave excelled with a wonderful week that looks set to make him a contender to go the distance, whilst there was definitely a tough decision to be had as to who would head home.

Josh, Jane and Howard were joined by the brilliant Dan Beasley Harling (star of series 9 and recipient of three Hollywood handshakes) – as we recorded this podcast remotely via Zoom. We’d like your questions and comments s to keep us going in the new series. Hit us up at thebakedown@bakewithalegend.com and we’ll read out your comments on the upcoming episodes.
