Junior Bake Off

Postby Pepper Pig » November 12th, 2019, 11:00 am

Is anyone else watching this. Channel 4 daily at 5 pm. We're into week 2. It was recommended to me and I had reservations about pushy parents etc. but actually it's quite lovely. Prue, Liam Charles and Harry Hill are just great with the kids and there is some lovely work (and some terrible disasters).

I’ve seen bits, I think it has all the best qualities of early bake off.

Liam, Prue and Harry Hill are a great presenting team.

I love it. So refreshing without Paul Hollywood and Harry Hill is great, I wish they'd change the line up for the adult one too! The children give one hope for future generations.

Love the pancake art! I've never seen that before.

Such nice children, helping each other. One thing does worry me, the age range, the youngest is eight, the eldest is fifteen, only seven years but at that time of your life it is the heck of a lot of difference

How about asking GBBO contestants to make Viennese Whirls and Pancake Art?

Good idea! They are both quite hard to execute perfectly.

I don't think the juniors need to be using food processors to the degree that they are. I would like to see them demonstrate that they understood traditional methods. I enjoyed seeing Finn make pastry with his fingertips. There was something the day before (can't remember what it was) which really didn't need a processor but they all used one.

I'm quite in awe of what those young people achieved in the final episodes. It must have been hard to pick a winner but I approved of the choice.

I have enjoyed this programme, such nice children, No brats, no little princesses, no wanna be celebrities, they all helped each other. The only thing that worried me was the youngest children, they were too small to manage some of the equipment. .
