My wife has begun watching a British baking show on Netflix. It's a reality TV contest and I watched two episodes with her. It was fun and made me want to bake. You should post your meal in #grubski.

The season with Norman and Chetna?

Season 2. I saw the last two episodes.

The starts of the seasons are really good too. You've got people (like Norm, who's in a later season) who know enough to make tasty things, but aren't proficient enough or inclined (again Norm) to make them super fancy looking to satisfy Paul and Merry. To me, things generally seemed more attainable at home at the start.

Which show is this?

OMG!! In the UK it is called The Great British Bake Off and it is very popular. Basically all of my friends watch it. People are really obsessed about it here and it has got loads of people to start baking (again). I was so confused for a second when you made that post because I thought "is there some other British baking TV show that I haven't heard of, like on ITV?".

It's so jarring to see it called The Great British Baking Show on PBS... I need to lie down. This is like Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone all over again.
