Bread Week was vintage Great British Bake Off, by Jim Shelley

Word plays for sandwiches: Bread Week was The Great British Bake Off at its best. A ridiculously fun mix of incredible, sophisticated creations and unsuspected adolescent allusions. It certainly had more word plays about sandwiches than a festival of Carry On films

Bread Week was The Great British Bake Off at its best.

A ridiculously fun mix of incredible, sophisticated creations and unsuspected adolescent allusions. It certainly had more word plays about sandwiches than a festival of Carry On films.

Participants had "fantastic rolls", "huge rolls", even "rolls that looked beautiful but were sticky at the edges"; – what no one wants and probably requires a visit to the doctor.

Honestly, it was difficult to say what was better: cooking or comments.

There is just something about bread that makes Bread Week vintage Bake Off. In theory it could be because everyone loves bread.

We live in a country where toast is part of the culture – a staple of our daily diet and practically a national delicacy that supports us through youth / education, before or after work, to old age.

On the other hand, the bread that the participants were producing was not something that we had ever made or even seen before.

Hilarious: participants had "fantastic sandwiches", "enormous rolls", even "sandwiches that looked beautiful but were sticky at the edges & # 39; - what no one wants and probably requires a visit to the doctor

The bakers were buzzing with the Broodweek, as footballers do with the cup final.

& # 39; It is Bread Week. I'm excited! & # 39; Kim-Joy beamed and summed up the mood. Bread is my thing, so I really feel the pressure to do it right. & # 39;

"I love eating bread!", Said Ruby, as if it were controversial, so far as he claimed: "Many people have recently removed the beads, but I do not!" 39;

Manon picked up the baton and showed that it was not just our British. & # 39; Do the French make the best bread in the world? Yes they do! & # 39;

A part of what Bread Week & # 39; special & # 39; was aware that they would be judged by Paul Hollywood.

Paul is Captain Bread & # 39 ;, as Noel Fielding formulated it. & # 39; He sleeps in a bap. & # 39;

He had of course chosen the first challenge of this week: Chelsea sandwiches – & # 39; a bit of a specialty of me & # 39 ;.

There was no need to brag – especially about something that is a reasonable niche area of ‚Äč‚Äčexpertise.

Even he had probably never seen Chelsea sandwiches as the bakers thought.

Self-assured: Manon picked up the baton and showed that it was not just our British. & # 39; Do the French make the best bread in the world? Yes they do! & # 39;

Kim-Joy, for example, even stated it will be nice to explain something new about Paul! & # 39; Using the Tangzhong technique, which sounded like something from the Karma Sutra or a yoga position.

After this episode of the Bake Off it is safe to say that the Chelsea sandwiches they sell in Greggs will never appear the same again. They will always be spectacularly inadequate.

Dan & # 39; s Chelsea sandwiches had, for example, brandy sultanas, while Antony's were not blessed with a "cinnamon and peanut butter refill" & # 39; but glazed with boozy caramel. & # 39;

Jon had made salted caramel and pecan flavored Chelsea sandwiches, finished with a & # 39; unusual top layer that Prue Leith almost lost for words: marshmallows.

& # 39; That really sounds … & # 39;

& # 39; Delicious! & # 39; Shouted the voice in our heads.

& # 39; Disgusting … & # 39; she finally decided (crazy).

Delight: Dan & # 39; s Chelsea sandwiches had for example cognac soaked sultanas, while Antony's were not blessed with a cinnamon and peanut butter & # 39; s. filling but glazed with boozy caramel & # 39;

Fillings / flavors in other bakery rolls include: "strawberry and balsamic vinegar & # 39; (Briony), pistachio and cardamom & # 39; (Kim-Joy), & # 39; apricot, cranberry and chai tea & # 39; (Manon), and & # 39; sweet mango chutney with cranberry and Bengali five spices (Rahul of course).

& # 39; That stuffing is beautiful & # 39 ;, Paul Hollywood told him. & # 39; Very smart. & # 39;

Earlier he had bullied the young Indian because he was so nervous that his hands were actually shaking.

& # 39; Come on! You were Star Baker last week! Hollywood reminded him before he laughed: & # 39; but again, there is only one way to go further! & # 39;

Excited: Fillings / flavors in other bakery rolls were: "strawberry and balsamic vinegar & # 39; (Briony), pistachio and cardamom & # 39; (Kim-Joy), & # 39; apricot, cranberry and Chai tea & # 39; (Manon) and & # 39; sweet mango chutney & # 39; with cranberry and Bengali five herbs (Rahul of course). & # 39; That stuffing is beautiful & # 39 ;, Paul Hollywood told him. & # 39; Very smart & # 39;

Gone away: Antony was not so lucky and became the third participant to go home. Unfortunately, Hollywood told him, his buns were dry & # 39; - the kind of personal observation / pun that quickly became the defeat in the Signature round when he challenged them to make Chelsea sandwiches

Not necessary. Not if you were Star Baker again, like Rahul was.

Antony was not so lucky and became the third participant to go home.

Unfortunately, Hollywood told him, his buns were "dry" – the kind of personal observation / pun that quickly became the ryeur in the round of the Act when he challenged them to make Chelsea buns.

Briony had & # 39; pretty buns & # 39; for example, while & # 39; Kim-Joy & # 39; s sandwiches were perfect & # 39 ;.

Terry had & # 39; nice soft rolls & # 39; (which was nice) but Jon's & spongy buns & # 39; s & # 39; s & # 39; the new & # 39; sodden bottom. & # 39;

Ruby had expressed her fear that Hollywood would poke and poke her & # 39; – not an image that someone needed.

He even stated that Ruby's sandwiches were "hard and crispy and not sticky enough".

Not how they should be, said Prue Leith, and not what we expected.

Manon, not for the first time, invented them all. She had heart-shaped buns, which won the best bun spit as nothing else.

& # 39; I'm going to say to Paul: do you want to see my sandwiches?! & # 39; she laughed at Ruby.

I think we all knew what his answer would have been.

Laughing: Manon, not for the first time, has dropped them all. She had heart-shaped buns, which won the best bun spit as nothing else. & # 39; I'm going to say to Paul: do you want to see my sandwiches?! & # 39; she laughed at Ruby
