Bake Off

It was the semi final of Bake Off this evening.
Cheerful chippy Richard, wisecracking Yorkshire gran Nancy, the elfin Chetna and technical wizard Luis slugged it over baklavas, a dry-as-a-nun's chuff German Schichttorte and a show stopping selection of French entremets. 
Who will win?
Who knows? And to be honest it doesn't really matter which one lifts the trophy as every one  is a talented baker in their own right
Having said this ,  I really would like Nancy to win,

  4. It has been ages since I have watched a cooking show/contest. Here in the US, there seemed to be some real underhandedness, nasty!

  7. I'd like Nancy to win too, but have a feeling it may be Richard - he keeps being star baker. Note to self: make sure you only watch this on a FULL stomach!

  8. I think BB is correct - I suspect it will be Richard - he is very good and very consistent. I do like Nancy though :)

  9. I want Richard to win but would really be happy for any of them as they are really all so talented. I was sorry when Martha went out because for 17 she is really brilliant. Maybe she will open a really posh shop one day - if so make sure you keep away John - I could have eaten that baklava soon as look at it.

  10. Nancy is a Hull City supporter so of course I am rooting for her. Apparently, she has secret fantasies about Tom Huddlestone who is not a nancy boy.

  12. I would love Richard or Luis to win. That *shit* torte looked bloomin awful. I think Mr Hollywood needs to take his head out of his arse, just cos it's technical doesn't mean it tastes great

  13. I think one of the guys will win, but which one I can't decide, they are very good each in their own way. Paul has paid them both a lot of compliments.

  14. Grilled cake! What is that all about? Mind you the fancy cakes at the end made me go wobbly at the knees with desire! I would be happy for any of them to win but the blunt Nancy refusing to be intimidated by 'the male judge' is my favourite!

  16. I think you'll find Nancy is a Lincolnshire Lass I'll have you know.

  17. Has Luis EVER won star baker? He's not necessarily my favourite but I think he deserved star baker ahead of Richard this time around. That's just my two cents.

    As for the overall winner, I'd be happy with any of the three remaining.
