British Baking Show - Pies!

DGresh | Jan 26, 201506:59 AM     79

I enjoyed this week's pie competition. I was particularly impressed that most of the 3 or 4-tiered pies managed to stay upright and look good.

I was surprised by a couple of things in the first challenge. One, that they all seemed to remove the excess crust *after* baking rather than before. Does anyone know the advantage of this? It seems it would make it crumbly at the edge rather than neat.

The other was that someone did the blind bake with saran wrap rather than parchment or foil. I'd be afraid it might melt, but apparently not.

It really was time for Norman to go. He just wasn't nearly at the level of the other bakers. The editing on the "judges table" was amusing; there was no way they were sending Richard or Martha home, seriously.
