The Proving Drawer: a podcast about The Great British Baking Show
Summary: Writer/producers Jim Cantiello and Annie Barrett used to stay up all night in NYC recapping American reality TV, for money. Now they sit around in L.A. talking about the British kind, for free! Welcome to THE PROVING DRAWER, the definitive “let’s do this now before the show drastically changes” podcast for #GBBO fans one and all. Are you as obsessed with Mary Berry’s jacket collection as we are? Dying to befriend Mel and Sue? Have recurring nightmares of Paul Hollywood boiling down your life’s worth in a few devastating seconds? Perfect. Scrumptious, really. Clearly you belong here. Whether you’re a newcomer tuning into “The Great British Baking Show” on PBS, a longtime Netflix binge-watcher, a smartypants who figured out ALL THE EPISODES OF ALL SEVEN SEASONS ARE ON YOUTUBE, or just coming in blind... welcome. Have a listen. Take a bite.
It’s the last sad, rainy picnic Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood will ever have to attend together! Welcome to the final hour of “The Great British Bake Off” as we know it: tear-stricken, OOZING, and absolutely “cram-jam full of salmon”. Whose “exciting hamper” would the judges find fit for the Queen: Candice’s, Andrew’s, or Jane’s?
Bienvenue à Week 9, where the fondant flows almost as smoothly as a brisk-paced Mel and Sue masterclass. Who wants a booze-soaked “butthole cake” and some explosively overfilled “pigs’ ears”? WHY can’t Jane learn?! And how tall is Paul Hollywood… REALLY? It’s the penultimate episode of “The Great British Baking Show” as we know it, so crunch into some “rawwww” dough and listen up.
Ballooning knight sacs, Mexican Adventures, and edible glitter: It’s just like traditional Tudor times on the #PBSBakingShow, Week 8. Which of our final five’s shaped pies oozed the hardest? Did Queen Mary and King Nut Ball approve of their marzipan showstoppers? But first, and most pressing: Which Spice Girl would everyone be?! THE PROVING DRAWER podcast on iTunes
Week 7 is a veritable "Tropical Holiday" as the remaining six bakers shove the nuts in and sweat it all out. Who achieved the fanciest and/or drunkest roulades? What exactly is a praline? And did Jane defeat her possibly gelatinous demons in a gripping game of whack-a-mousse? Be sure to catch full episodes of "The Great British Baking Show" on PBS.org to keep up with THE PROVING DRAWER podcast, sponsored in part by Dad's Curd.
