The snow is melting after a snowy Wisconsin winter, and we know you’ve been itching to dig!
For years, Wisconsin Public Television has captured lectures from our Garden & Landscape Expo to enjoy throughout the year on University Place. Just in time for spring, we’re sharing some of our favorites that we hope will take your garden – big or small – to new heights.
Best of all, you can stream these episodes on your digital or mobile devices wherever and whenever you like: in the living room, at the kitchen table, from your porch or even in the garden itself!
Last season, admittedly, we were a little hesitant about the, well, Britishness of some of these challenges. “They don’t want to use all that suet, do they?” we thought. “And where do you get treacle, anyway?”
Wonder no more, friends; in Week 6, this pud’s for YOU!
Last week showed off pastry prowess – and flavors that went flop. This week’s episode went from wobbly to wondrous, as bakers were asked to rise to the occasion in the Desserts challenge and tackle Torte Cake, Crème Caramel and a Four-Layer Meringue Dessert.
The Queen of Hearts indeedmade some tarts, but our Wisconsin bakers staged a veritable overthrow of her crown as they whisked along with this week’s Great British Baking Show: TARTS! Devoted entirely to topless (gasp) pastry, Paul and Mary’s tent tormented contestants with a Classic French Tarte Tatin, Mary Berry’s (Very Own) British Treacle Tart and a Designer Fruit Tart worthy of a Parisian patisserie window — speaking of overthrows, step aside, Napoleon.
In the spirit of The Great British Baking Show, The Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge asked our bakers to select just one of the three tart challenges. It was a holiday week in Wisconsin and the nation as we celebrated Independence Day, but our bakers still delivered: through road travel, motor boating and oodles of Aunt Nanette’s noodle salad. Thanks for the fruity fireworks, friends!
