Who will win the Great British Bake Off 2018?

The winner of the Great British Bake-off will be, most probably, Prue Leith or Paul Hollywood.  As judges they have a high profile and the knock-on benefit of book sales and TV appearances is significant.  Paul Hollywood has allegedly amassed a fortune of £10m since joining the programme in 2010. 

More recently, I have noticed that my former boss, Prue Leith, who had swapped cookery books for writing novels – eight so far - has just published her first cookery book in 25 years.  The reason being that the TV bakers have inspired her to pick up her whisk once more.

The Great British Bake Off Final

Defeated by a social media muddle, the final of the Great British Bake Off was a slight anti-climax.  However, knowing what the outcome would be somehow took the edge off the anxiety when you want your favourite to win.  And in the end, it was the right person who came through.

Technical Challenge!

Technical Challenge!

Like millions of others I love watching Great British Bake Off every week and it is interesting to watch the contestants from a professional point of view. Not just as someone who has written a book on all aspects of baking, but also as a teacher. I have one big beef with the format though. It frustrates me that when the contestants do their technical challenge they are not given all the instructions and it is usually the ones who have made elements of it before who shine, whilst the others who haven't just flounder!
