The Great British Bake Off

The Great British Bake Off appears on our screens again next Tuesday on BBC2 at 8pm.

Presenters Sue Perkins and Mel Gledroyc return with a new search for Britain’s best amateur baker.

There’s a short list of 12 of the most ‘passionate and skilled’ hopefulls, whittled down from thousands of applicants.

Over the next eight weeks, their ‘baking skills will be pushed to the limit’ as they bake everything from cakes and pies to bread and biscuits.

Those who don’t make the grade will be sent packing!!!!!

New – Come cook ‘n’ eat with me –
A great new concept from The Cookery School. In the afternoon you will enjoy a Cookery Course during which you learn to cook an exciting meal and in the evening invite 2 friends to come and eat what you cook. You can either serve them personally or have the waiting staff serve them. The afternoon begins with a Chefs Briefing, then you will be taught how to cook each course in turn. When your guests arrive you will cook their meal under the watchful eye of the Chef. You can join them for coffee when the meal is over. Note – you yourself will eat as in a professional kitchen. Cost £107.50. (Note – vouchers not valid)
NEW – Cook’n’Whisky
How does this sound – the morning spent doing a cookery course and the afternoon spent tasting fine malt whiskies. An ideal combination. Cost £100 (Note – vouchers not valid)
