Life after GBBO

Ruby Tandoh Eat UpRuby Tandoh rocketed to stardom at the tender age of 20 as a contestant on The Great British Bake Off. Her creative approach to baking and outsized personality quickly made her a fan favorite. Now 25, Tandoh has just published her third cookbook, Eat Up!: Food, Appetite and Eating What You Want. She recently sat down with The Wall Street Journal to discuss the book along with her culinary career

While Tandoh states that she doesn't know where her career would be now without the GBBO, she does know that it would involve food. She became interested in cooking during college, where she turned to baking cakes to stave off boredom. 

In the article, Tandoh discusses many of her favorite things, including ingredients, cookware, and kitchen gadgets. When asked what food trend she was totally over, Tandoh replied "macho stuff." She went on to explain, "It happens with so many things. Suddenly guys want credit for reviving the art of baking, and something historically feminized and devalued is rebranded as masculine and artful."
