We're a (healthily) competitive lot here at Original Travel and all this recent chat about the new hosts of The Great British Bake Off got us thinking. Why just Britain? And why just baking? Cue the drawing of continental battle lines and each team putting forward their region's finest cuisine for our inaugural Great Global Bake (and Roast, Braise, Steam, Sauté, Barbecue etc) Off. OK, so the title could do with some work but we think we've got a sure-fire smash hit show on our hands (any TV producers reading this, do give us a call). Fast-forward to the final, and after some fierce competition (Australasia saw off the Caribbean in a particularly closely fought quarter-final), which two continents do you think impressed the judges? It came down to a battle royale between Asia and Europe, with (spoiler alert) Asia eventually raising the trophy. Here are the reasons why. (Permission to salivate…)
