Contrary to the prior season, season 13 is filmed at Welford Park, Berkshire.
The Great British Bake Off: How the Bake-off Goes
The bakers, who are mostly amateurs or home-cooks are selected through auditions in London. They are then evaluated and only those who are fine mentally and physically are allowed to be a part of the show.
Once the bake-off begins, each of the participants will have to go through three different rounds:
- The Signature Round: For these amateur bakers this is a chance to prove their baking and cooking skills. They’ll have to make a signature dish and it’s up to them to decide what to make.
- The Technical Round: This has a higher level of complexity as everyone will be asked to re-create a dish, that’s shown to them through a digital animation or illustration. None of the bakers will know about this beforehand. The Animations are done by the talented Tom Hovey.
- Showstopper Round: Now this is the round for bakers to show off their best works. They would have to come up with a dish that’ll amaze the judges.
The Great British Bake Off has introduced some of the most talented chefs such as Nadiya Hussain and John Whaite. It’s a fun yet challenging show that’s sure to make you like it.
The Great British Bake Off Season 13 Episode 4: Recap
4th Episode of this season aired on 4th October 2022. It was the special Mexican week, where all the contestants would have to make cakes and other dishes that are indigenous to the culturally rich land of Mexico.
Pan Dulce, which is a soft brioche-like bun was one of the dishes that had to be made. Another favorite of this week was Tres leches, which is a kind of cake known for its complex recipe. The cake has to be kept in three kinds of milk such as evaporated, condensed, and whole milk.
It was fun to see everyone do their best to make these delicacies, but sadly by the end of all three challenges, two people were eliminated. James and Rebs had to say goodbye to the show as they had placed last.
