The Nice British Baking Present tried its hand at Japanese week
This week was a primary on The Nice British Baking Present; it was Japanese week! I didn’t count on this week to go effectively in any respect, however shockingly, the bakers did effectively for probably the most half. Was it fully Japanese desserts? Nope!
The primary problem was really a Chinese language recipe, not a Japanese one, and the signature merely added matcha to a french recipe. And it appears I’m not the one one who seen. There was plenty of backlash on Twitter.
However let’s get into the person challenges. The signature problem was all about steamed (Chinese language) buns. Not gonna lie, most of those I’d have eaten in a heartbeat. All of them sounded so good and based mostly on the judges’ reactions, they tasted good as effectively.
At first, I assumed this was going to be one other brownie problem. A number of the bakers have been specializing in making their buns seem like completely different animals as a substitute of simply making a superb bun. Fortunately, it turned out of their favor. The buns seemed and tasted nice.
Lots of the recipes on Nice British Bake Off this week weren’t Japanese
Subsequent up, the technical problem! They needed to make a matcha crepe cake (not a Japanese dessert) which was a pleasant inexperienced on the surface with white chocolate and strawberries in between the layers on the within.
Once more, a lot of the bakers did effectively, though some had points with getting sufficient crepes out of their batter. Ultimately, Laura got here in final place and Peter got here in first.
The showstopper problem was all about making a kawaii cake (which they mispronounced within the episode). Past making the cake, in addition they wanted to take inspiration from Japanese delicacies.
These truffles, if nothing else, seemed spectacular. There have been truffles that seemed like cute avocados, truffles that seemed like canine, mushroom-shaped truffles, and even a pineapple and a shuttlecock!
Sadly, not all the cakes tasted as good as they seemed. Paul stated Mark L’s cake was borderline inedible and Hermine’s cake seemed a bit extra spooky than cute. Ultimately, Mark L was the one to go dwelling and Lottie, along with her jiggly mushroom cake, was named Star Baker.
The bakers might have carried out effectively with what they made this week, however the present didn’t with their lackluster try at making an attempt to offer the bakers Japanese recipes to make. It will have been higher in the event that they’d have caught with what they already know. Particularly since they have been clearly not keen to do their analysis.
Right here’s hoping subsequent week which is 1980s week goes significantly better. They’ll’t be offensive in regards to the 80s, proper? New Great British Baking Show episodes seem weekly each Friday on Netflix.
