The Great British Bake Off is, to some of us, entertaining television. An extra ordinary range of human emotions are laid out for our delectation. We have tears and unparalleled joy. It looks as though it is not the winning but the taking part!
The recent program on `Patisserie’ allowed us an insight into the complexity of French baking. It did look, at times, as if a glorious fail was just as important as a soul searing win. The children among us (and here I include myself) would possibly have preferred a good old fashioned fudge.
