Happy Monday Earthlings, I hope everyone had a perfect weekend! My weekend was pretty solid except for one sad detail. This weekend I officially finished binge watching The Great British Baking Show. The only good part about finishing a series, is telling you guy’s about it! I don’t think I have ever watched something so pleasantly addictive in my life. The Great British Baking show is basically the equivalent to the U.S’s American Idol (instead of singing the Brits bake). The show is broadcasted on BBC, therefore I binged it via Netflix. Netflix is currently streaming 3 out of the 7 seasons, and I promise you once you start you won’t be able to stop (You will also be super hungry after watching The Great British Baking Show, but don’t say I didn’t warn you).
As most of you know I am not a fan of cooking. I don’t physically like being in kitchens, I don’t like following recipes, and I have zero patience to wait for something to bake. With that being said, I have a total fascination with cooking shows. Cooking shows take the physical part of being in the kitchen out of cooking. I am notorious for binge watching shows like Chef’s Table, Cooked, and pretty much any cooking show I can get my hands on. When I saw Netflix offering The Great British Baking Show I knew I had to give it a shot. After the first episode I was in love, I then immediately got my entire family binge watching The Great British Baking Show. In one weekend we guzzled up all three seasons, and we all want more!
The show begins with 13 contestants competing to be the best amateur baker in Britain. We have two judges; Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry. Paul Hollywood is a highly acclaimed bread baker, and Mary Berry is one of the most accomplished dessert cookbook writers in the world. Mel and Sue are the two zany hosts you just can’t get enough of. Every episode includes one signature challenge, a technical challenge, and of course the show stopper challenge. At the end of each hour we watch someone go home and a closer knit bunch inch a bit closer to becoming Britains best amateur baker.
If you are looking for something light, fun, and delicious to binge watch this week I highly reccomend The Great British Baking Show. So far every single person I have suggested it to absolutely loves the show, and becomes just as addicted as I did. So binge watchers, do yourself a favor and dive into this perfectly sweet show!
