’Tis Dining Month, the tastiest time of year! This means we’re dishing up fun and fascinating food content throughout October. Dig in, Milwaukee!
Fall is here, and the temperatures are dropping – so what better time to cuddle up with the snuggly sweater of the streaming world, a blanket in television form: "The Great British Baking Show" on Netflix!
That's right: The world's nicest competition show is back with even more delightful pensioners, even more talented bakers half my age, even more cornball jokes, even more contestants failing with incredible grace and humor ... and oh yeah, they bake stuff on this show too. Really impressive stuff, too – a trend that continued into the fourth episode, a dessert-packed delight featuring pretty pavlovas, sticky toffee puddings that were more trouble than toffee, some beautiful jaconde imprimes, a few ruptured jaconde imprimes and this incredible reaction shot from Giuseppe.
New episodes drop every Friday on Netflix – so we're meeting up every Monday night at 9:05 p.m. on OnMilwaukee's Facebook page to drink some booze, recap the latest developments and drink some more booze. (Pru would certainly approve.)
So tune in to the latest episode below, where I talk about all the latest developments, the risers and the soggy bottoms of the bunch. Who got eliminated? Would Freya's vegan approach survive dessert week? Would Jurgen get back on his game after a shockingly poor bread week? Is a new favorite joining Giuseppe and Jurgen? And have you ever seen anything as unappetizing as Maggie's accidentally gluten-free sticky toffee puddings? (Poor, poor Maggie.) Let's drink and discuss dessert week!
Stay tuned for more recap episodes on Monday nights – and be sure to join in the conversation in the comments! Cheers – and here's to another delightful batch of "The Great British Baking Show!"
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
