    I think what would be interesting is to make a savory Swiss roll if that makes sense. That could be an interesting series.

    Swiss roll was one of the first things I learnt to bake (well) all by myself... when I was about 12 or so. 😂 Never really understood why people find it so difficult.

    I think, in recipes like this, where you do not want to knock out air, it seems really good to sift your flour, so you can mix less without having lumps of flour :)

    This is another person’s suggestion that I think is wonderful. From Cameron Webster “Interesting recipe challenge idea: Give normals a cookbok they haven't seen before, lead them to believe they will be reviewing it. After ~10 tell them it's actually a recipe battle, and they have ~5min to pick a recipe from the book and write some notes before taking the book away. Give the normals 3-5 post-its to discourage copying the whole recipe. Have normals switch notes with each other. Normals cook recipe with the notes provided, and chefs judge them.”

  • Alice Gibson

    Video idea: who knows me best-ish. Someone for example Barry is the first person, he picks out the ingredients and makes a dish. However long he takes is the time the others get, they are all presented with Barry's ingredients + a few extra. They all get the allocated time to make what they think Barry will have made with the ingredients. At the end they all see all of the dishes, whoever is closest to what Barry made (taste, appearance etc) wins. It could be a 5 part series with each one of them being the first on an episode.
