The first two episodes of #LoveTriangle are interesting, but don’t really indicate what the rest of the series will be about.
At 10 o’clock this morning, Foxtel issued a press release announcing that they had commissioned a sixth season of The Great Australian Bake Off, but with a brand new cast. I tweeted about it briefly, but didn’t have time to say much because I was working. Before I continue, I just want to say thatContinue reading “About that new season of #BakeOffAU”
The day before this episode aired, I told my housemate that it was patisserie week. Her response was “haven’t they already done that?” Yes they did, it was French week in episode 6. So it was an odd start to the semi finals. Also, as I kept saying on Twitter, the challenges felt like theyContinue reading “The Great Australian Bake Off, Season 5 Episode 9: Patisserie #BakeOffAU”
So, as it turns out, my life has been spectacularly busy and I’ve barely had the energy for these. Never fear, there will be two mini recaps, followed by full recaps for the last two episodes of the season. So, let’s get started. Episode 5: Home Grown This was a really good episode, and IContinue reading “The Great Australian Bake Off, Season 5 Episodes 5&6 | #BakeOffAU”
As it turns out, the week after the best episode of the series is one of the worst episodes of Bake Off I’ve ever seen (Kiwi Bake Off remains its own special category #TeamMammoth). It’s nostalgia week. Hooray? Nostalgia week is all about classic Australian bakes, when half of the bakers weren’t even born inContinue reading “The Great Australian Bake Off, Season 5 Episode 4: Nostalgia #BakeOffAU”
Very VERY belatedly, it’s bread week! It’s my favourite staple week of the series, and this is the first great episode of the season. I wish I’d been able to watch this live, it was so much fun. After a couple of weeks of what I can only guess was post-lockdown “how do you people?,”Continue reading “The Great Australian Bake Off, Season 5 Episode 3: Bread #BakeOffAU”
In the words of Claire Hooper, “Get the kettle on, it’s biscuit week.” My friends know that biscuit week is my least favourite of the early episodes. The showstoppers are usually are variation on “make a building out of biscuits” and it gets tiring. I love eating biscuits, but they don’t make the best television.Continue reading “The Great Australian Bake Off, Season 5 Episode 2: Biscuits #BakeOffAU”
We’re back! This show hasn’t aired in over two years, but it’s time to go back to the shed with Mel, Claire, Matt and Maggie, as well as 12 new bakers! And, as is tradition, we start with Cake Week. Look at those beautiful faces, full of hope, passion for baking, and an unjustified fearContinue reading “The Great Australian Bake Off, Season 5 Episode 1: Cake #BakeOffAU”
