You make call it fickle, but give me a quirky or fun event outside of the norm and I’m racing to get on board. They’re exciting, creative and can be very inspiring.
Given this, Eurovision is the word on my lips spoken with excitement at least twice an hour (to the horror of the rest of the BakingMad.com team), and I think a little mention on the BakingMad.com blog is long overdue.
‘What has Eurovision got to do with baking?’ I hear you say. Only everything!
It doesn’t have to be just about watching a fantastic and engaging programme that unites the EU; it’s an opportunity to learn about other cultures and, most importantly, their food!
At BakingMad.com headquarters we’re asking the office to get their Euro-bake on by hosting a little continental sweepstake. The names of all the countries involved in Eurovision are folded and placed in a draw, the team blind pick a country, then we bake/cook something that represents our pick. Easy.
We can’t wait to share our recipes and photographs on Facebook with you, but until then we’re encouraging you to Euro-bake and would love to hear from you with your recipes and pictures!
Check out the links below for a little inspiration.
Will your bakes be more inspiring than the BakingMad.com team’s? Challenge accepted!
