Baking GBBO

It’s Nearly Time – Join Us As We Enjoy Series 7 of The Great British Bake Off

After a fortnight of flag waving and celebration we are still luxuriating in the reflected golden glory of Team GB. But, as the heroic efforts of our athletes recede into the history books and the sun sets for the final time on Rio 2016, a new challenge beckons, and Home Chef will be with it every step of the way.

On August 24th, twelve new and eager amateur bakers will step into the limelight and onto our screens, and Mel and Sue will pronounce the annual baking marathon that is the Great British Bake-Off, open!

The contestants have just been announced and we’re looking forward to getting to know them as they enter the arena that is the GBBO tent for the first time. The stage is set and of one thing we can be sure - there will be drama of Olympic proportions.

There will be tears and no doubt there will also be tantrums. There will be triumphs and disasters, celebrations and commiserations. And, sure as eggs is eggs, there will be soggy bottoms galore and an excess of bunting. At the end of it all, three baking gladiators will emerge from the crowd to battle it out to become the next Bake-Off champion. There will be no gold medal, just a tea party in the garden and a kiss from Mary, but the glory is all.

And, here at Home Chef we can’t wait. Every week we’ll be following the ups and downs of the new crop of bakers, appreciating Mary’s increasingly vibrant array of fitted jackets and reporting on Paul’s twinkliest put downs.

The Bake-Off is back – follow it with us, and we’ll also be giving you some ideas for top kitchen equipment that will help you re-create some of the bakers’ greatest successes. The season of mellow fruitfulness is bringing us the greatest baking show on earth. Join us bakers!

Find our GBBO blog on the website and on our Home Chef Facebook page – @HomeChefUK. Don’t forget to post your ideas and comments on the unfolding Bake-Off story, we’d love to hear from you!
