Been watching and loving Nadiya Bakes, just as i did her other cooking show on Netflix. My best friend watched her egg rolls recipe and it's now become a staple at his house.
The new season of the The Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off is starting soon and I am so bummed those aren't available on Netflix or anywhere for that matter, (except for clips on Youtube) as I would love to watch them, seeing as the contestants are celebrities who are doing it for charity. Most of them are British celebs, so I don't really know them, but occasionally they get a celebrity I recognize and would love to see them bake in the tent. They've had the likes of John Lithgow, Teri Hatcher, Russell Brand and Richard Dreyfuss, and this year they have James McAvoy and Daisy Ridley.
Here are two articles that confirm that the show went into its bubble in June, and began filming in July. It looks like the same schedule as last year, so we can probably expect the new season to start in mid-late September.
They basically take themselves out of the world for as long as Big Brother does. In addition to the new season, they also film the celebrity holiday specials and Junior Bake Off, which only airs in the UK.
Looks like a nice place to be sequestered. Of course it’s different from the years when they taped on weekends and could go home and practice during the week but last year was set up like this and it was a good season so I have hopes for this season as well.
I turned it on at 2 in the morning to watch first thing and fell asleep before the first bake was finished, lol. I had to rewatch this morning!
While I liked all the little animals at the beginning skit I had to fast-forward through them singing that Billy Ray Cyrus song. It's a lovely, well-rounded cast this time of really likable people, so no favorites yet. It's Cake Week, so the first task was to make mini-rolls, which everyone did to different levels of success. The technical was Malt Loaf, and for all the jokes about young people not knowing what it was I didn't know either and I'm not a young duck. It looked like a very tricky thing to bake, so it didn't surprise me that the eldest contestant had it in the bag. The Showstopper was a lot of fun and I like anti-gravity cakes but they have to be built carefully or else they will break (as a few bakers discovered) and I felt really badly for the bakers who had parts fall off/cake collapse.
I am going to have to turn the subtitles on as some of the accents are a bit thick. The girl with the pink smiley dress, I could barely understand but I think she had some really smart rebukes and I want to hear them.
I got the email at 2 am saying it was up and was like yay! Netflix stuff tends to drop at 12am PST on the day it's released here; I thought it would be the same elsewhere.
That's been my experience in the past. I was surprised it wasn't available until 8 yesterday. I may watch the episode again, just because the show brings me joy.
People on another page I frequent did not like the Billy Ray intro . . . I LOVED IT!!!!
I loved it, too. I had a hard time identifying Prue on keyboard -
I kept thinking Thursday was Friday and was so disappointed it wasn't on the episode list yet. I kept trying it all day long. another this time at myself.
Looks like a good group, but some of the accents...aiyee. I had on subtitles or I would be lost, especially the young girl with the throat rasp. I baked a sweet bread once with molasses, but I didn't try to cook it in water first. Love figs so that loaf looked yummy to me. I think the wave cake was the most original as everyone (even on Kids' baking show) does the pouring from a height bit.
