The Furred Man – Half Baked

Wine and Bear It

On your marks… get set… DRINK! Er, I mean BAKE!

Here in the UK, we have one of those pseudo-reality shows that deals with the deeply philosophical subject of baking. Such is the fervour for the Great British Bake Off (hereafter to be known as GBBO) that one of its judges, Mary Berry (whose daughter I once wrote a database for), is to become Queen of Britain should the current monarch pass away.

Auguste was so inspired by the opening episode last week that he went straight into the kitchen and drank a bottle of cooking sherry before anyone knew what was happening. Once we sobered him up, he ‘helped’ the Snail make some delicious Millionaire’s Shortbread. Here’s the evidence:

  2. GBBO is back?! I can’t wait :). I always thought that Paul Hollywood was a serious pratt to the NTH degree prior to watching GBBO. Now I know that he merely dabbles in the vernacular. Can’t wait till we in the antipodes are allowed to watch the latest series. I don’t have a resident Auguste, but Earl comes a serious close second to his raffish ways ;).

  3. Reblogged this on The Snail of Happiness and commented:
    To celebrate biscuit week on the Great British Bake Off, August and I have been doing some cooking that didn’t involve putting things in jars. Rather than write about it himself, Auguste asked Mr Snail to do the honours…
