The last two weeks: GBBO start date; Dorie’s new free baking group; Cedric Grolet; EYBD previews and more

The Great British Bake Off is scheduled to be back on UK screens on September 13th! Netflix has also confirmed that season 13 (labeled as collection 10) will be airing in North America on the Friday after each new UK episode as they have done the last two years.

Speaking of baking, Rick Rodgers has announced his fall class schedule. He will be conducting several classes featuring his baking friends. Rose Levy Beranbaum will be celebrating her new book The Cookie Bible and making cookies with Rick; Michelle Polzine will join Rick with a Linzer torte and Alex Peña, the US expert on Mexican pan dulce, will join Rick for three classes! Alex grew up at his family’s panadería in Los Angeles, and he is now a bread scientist at an international wholesale baking supplier. Check our Calendar for the full schedule.

Dorie Greenspan just announced the formation of a free private baking group Bake and Tell along with dropping the paywall to access to her weekly newsletters and archive of recipes! Thank you Dorie for allowing even more of us access to your wealth of knowledge.

Lastly, Cédric Grolet, the executive pastry chef at Le Meurice in Paris is known for his pastries that focus on fruits and the reinterpretation of traditional French desserts. He is known for creating desserts that have a likeness to the fruits from which they’re made. Follow his Instagram for inspiration. The incredibly talented Grolet has written three gorgeous books: Flowers, Opera Patisserie, and Fruit: The Art of Pastry. This week, our Jane with an assist from Fiona, made one of the gorgeous desserts from Flowers: Cherry tree, pictured above. I had to share this work of art with our Members. Jane said it took five hours with both of them working on the project but that the result was spectacular. Bravo Jane and Fiona!
