Summary

Take one tent. Fill with 12 amateur bakers. Garnish with one venerable cookery writer, one blue-eyed bread-maker, and two comedy queens with a love of innuendo. And there you have the recipe for the most popular show of our times. 
 
When The Great British Bake Off made its debut in August 2010, it had the makings of a modest hit. But nobody – not the programme-makers and certainly not those first contestants – could have predicted what was to come. Here was a show in which the biggest weekly drama was whether or not a sponge cake would sink in the middle. And oh, how we loved it. 
 
Here is the ultimate Bake Off fan book: from bread lion to bin-gate; heart throbs to Twitter trolls; soggy bottoms to sticky buns. This is the celebration of Britain's most popular cookery contest.

    First published in 1987, this revised and updated edition of Jane Butel’s Fiesta! brings to life the spirit of a region where company is always welcome, where the flavors are always clear and strong, and where creativity finds no more satisfying outlet than in the kitchen. The recipes in this book include both traditional dishes and new interpretations of them. After a helpful introductory section on ingredients and basic preparations, Jane Butel presents a series of festive brunches, indoor or outdoor occasions that feature treats like Bloody Marias, fresh apricot preserves, and a ham and chile omelet rolled into a decorative pinwheel. A group of lunches and picnics includes a Texas Independence Day meal, and twelve special dinners range from a Cinco de Mayo celebration to a New Mexican buffet to an elaborate but simple formal dinner for four.
    
    
    
     
    A cookbook called Fiesta! wouldn’t be complete without a section on Grand Events, and here you’ll find everything from a tamale roll and a Fourth of July fireworks patio party to a wedding feast and, of course, a fiesta. This Southwestern extravaganza, which features colorfully decorated tables piled high with irresistible finger food, begins with a margarita punch and is topped off with delicious buttery pralines.
    
    
    
     
    But Fiesta! is even more than its extraordinary food: it is a complete entertainment guide, offering “game plans” to help organize meals efficiently (including suggestions on what dishes can be made ahead of time), decorating tips that help create ideal settings, and plenty of other helpful hints. With Jane Butel as a guide, meals for fifty at a Texas-style barbecue—or for only two at a candlelit dinner—can be manageable as well as memorable.
