Thanks to popular demand, on Wed Nov 11 our regular Page Breaks session will be devoted to classic comfort TV institution The Great British Bake Off. Our episode is an infamous oldie: the attack of the Baked Alaska, aka ‘Bingate’. This will be co-hosted by a superfan (Toria) and a skeptic (Dorothy) so there’s space for all levels of Bake Off appreciation. See you there!
“An extremely good baker… who had a moment of madness” (Sue Perkins, Great British Bake Off)
