The Great British Bake Off Returns
Time to look for soggy bottoms, you know, in tarts and pies. The Great British Bake Off returns to PBS for season four on June 16th. GBBO is a delightfully proper English baking show where the drama isn't between contestants but between the contestant and their baking challenge. Be ready to fall in love with home bakers across the pond and delight in the silly and sometimes filthy sounding quotes from the judges. Here are few delights from judge and baking legend, Mary Berry: "Your crack is nice and moist," and "There is no such thing as too big. Not in my world." This is your last chance to enjoy the original cast. Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins did not go with GBBO's move to its new channel.
