This week: Ottolenghi YouTube series, Fortnum & Mason Food Award winners, GBBO air date confirmed, upcoming books from GBBO stars and more

Mark your calendars! Channel 4 has confirmed that The Great British Bake Off will return on 21 September. This is the second series to be filmed with strict regulations to reduce the potential spread of COVID on the set. The good news this year is that there appears to be no shortage of flour or yeast. 

Netflix will stream the shows in the US three days after the UK airing. Accordingly, the first episode will land in the US on Friday, September 24th. I can already hear the comforting theme music playing in my head.

Last week, I updated my post: Which Great British Bake Off Contestants have written books and will share a few of the highlights below:

Darcie and I will prepare our weekly Bake Off recap post beginning September 27th.

    In an era where every TV show seems to be political, it’s lovely to have GBBO back to offer an escape from the craziness of the world
