The Great British Bake Off

One of the best things about The Great British Bake Off is, even though it’s a competition, there’s no manufactured drama. Contestants are genuinely “chuffed” and “over the moon” with the success of others. It really is what it says it is…a show where you watch people bake. That’s it!

Hearing the first couple bars of the theme to The Great British Bake Off, you are immediately transported to the big, white tent with the gingham altar in the English countryside. It’s a short soundtrack, running under 30 minutes total, but each track takes you back to when you heard it on the show.

Recently, I was walking downtown and The Great British Bake Off soundtrack shuffled on my iPod and I didn’t feel like I was back at the big, white tent…I thought I was in a spy film like Jason Bourne or James Bond, even. It’s pretty genius how Tom Howe can make you think that your either watching your dough prove or evading snipers with the same music.
