The Great British Bake Off
Many of you across the pond have been watching the Great British Bake Off. Thanks to my good friend Ron who forwarded me YouTube links to the first episode of the new season I have finally been able to see what all the fuss is about.
First, I love to bake and second I love good food TV. Not the baloney Gordon Ramsay screaming kind, but the kind that shows talented people being talented in the kitchen. I love the GBBO, but as much as I love to bake, I have zero interest in being in such a competition.
The show is co-hosted by Sue Perkins who is one of the funniest women on the planet. I would love to hang out with her.
Sue Perkins (right) and some other woman.
But really, even if the show were boring watching the dishy Rob bake is worth the price of admission. One thing these pictures don't convey is just how pretty his eyes are. They are kind of a light brown--rather luminescent, and well, more than a little dreamy. [Update: Now that I have watched another episode his eyes look a little green, maybe they are hazel. Either way...sigh.]
