Hold onto your Chelsea buns! Kimberly and Katie, from A Date with Dateline, are branching out from their usual crime and punishment rough stuff to a more delicious type of rough puff. For this series we are delighting in the return of The Great British Bake Off, with sugar dusted recaps and discussion with just a pinch of snark. Not too much snark or you’ll have a snarky bottom. We're dishing on all the things you love about Bake Off— the properly British, mostly disguised (but sometimes not) innuendo, Noel’s perfect comic timing and choice of sweaters, and the always heart-stopping Hollywood handshake, usually following one or ten of his disapproving death stares. Join us in acting like we know what we’re talking about when it comes to flour choices (isn't semolina a country?), proving times for a proper loaf, and praising bakers along the way for their use of bold spices like our palettes might well be just as refined as the mighty Prue. What is a claggy frangipane genoise, you might ask, and am I in the emergency room or a patisserie if I am having one? Never fear, all the mysteries of pastry will be revealed in...no, no they won't. But, that's why we are on the couch and not in the Bake Off tent. If you love American professional amateur podcasters intently watching a group of amateur British bakers compete in a competition for the glory of national pride and a really heavy looking cake platter trophy with both really just earnestly doing their best then this is the home for you. Fire up the ovens, er... earbuds and on your mark, get set... It’s A DATE WITH THE BAKE!
