The Great Australian Bake Off Season 7 Episode 08 Description
The amateur baking enthusiasts embark on a global culinary adventure, whipping up artisanal treats from around the world. Their journey begins in Turkey, where they master the art of making fluffy, flavorful pide bread. These boat-shaped flatbreads are a staple in Turkish cuisine, topped with a medley of meats, vegetables, herbs and cheese.
Next, they travel to Southeast Asia to try their hand at a stunning rainbow lapis cake. This steamed layered cake is made of colorful batter in shades of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. When sliced, it reveals a vibrant ombre pattern that looks like the rings of a tree. The soft, spongy texture complements the sweet, coconutty flavor.
Their final stop is France, where they supersize the classic French macaron into a towering cookie stack. With crisp shells and creamy fillings, these bite-sized sandwiches are taken to new heights as a showstopping dessert. The group experiments with flavors like pistachio, chocolate, raspberry and lemon curd in their mega macaron creation.
After globetrotting through baking cultures around the world, the amateur pastry chefs have honed their skills and expanded their culinary repertoires. They’ve mastered three iconic regional desserts and had fun putting their own creative spin on each delicious treat.
