The Joy of The Great British Bake Off with Abby Anklam

This episode is part of the JoyProject Podcast:

If ever there was a television show founded on pure joy, it’s The Great British Bake Off. Professional writer and home baker Abby Anklam joins us on the JoyProject podcast to talk about how she started watching Bake Off and her favorite parts of the show that make it a delight to watch. Abby also shares the bakes she tried at home that were inspired by the show and the bakes she plans to try after everything she’s learned as an avid watcher and fan.

Topics discussed in this episode:

- What makes The Great British Bake Off such a joy to watch

- How Bake Off is different (and better!) than U.S.-based competition shows

- What fans of Bake Off learn from the show and apply to their own baking

- Those adorable illustrations of the bakes that have become a hallmark of the show

- Abby’s work as a writer and illustrator of children’s books

- The Story community where I met Abby

- Junior Bake Off – the newest show in the Bake Off franchise now on Netflix in the U.S.

- A quote about joy from Jaiya John sent to me by my wonderful friend, artist Rachael Harms Mahlandt
