Paul Hollywood and the pistoris stone

There has been a great deal of comment among my friends recently about a particularly British cookery program called "The Great British Bake Off". There has been some controversy as the program is moving from the BBC to a commercial broadcaster.

Part of this discussion comes from all the presenters, excepting Paul Hollywood, declining to sign with the new broadcaster and partly because of speculation the BBC might continue with a similar format show with a new name.

Rob Kendrick provided the start to this conversation by passing on a satirical link suggesting Samuel L Jackson might host "cakes on a plane"

This caused a large number of suggestions for alternate names which I will be reporting but Rob Kendrick, Vivek Das Mohapatra, Colin Watson, Jonathan McDowell, Oki Kuma, Dan Alderman, Dagfinn Ilmari MannsĂ„ke, Lesley Mitchell and Daniel Silverstone are the ones to blame.


  • Strictly come baking
  • Stars and their pies
  • Baking with the stars
  • Bake/Off.
  • Blind Cake
  • Cake or no cake?
  • The cake is a lie
  • Bake That.
  • Bake Me On
  • Bake On Me
  • Bakin' Stevens.
  • The Winner Bakes It All
  • Bakerloo
  • Bake Five
  • Every breath you bake
  • Every bread you bake
  • Unbake my heart
  • Knead and let prove
  • Bake me up before you go-go
  • I want to bake free
  • Another bake bites the dust
  • Cinnamon whorl is not enough
  • The pie who loved me
  • The yeast you can do.
  • Total collapse of the tart
  • Bake and deliver
  • You Gotta Bake
  • Bake's Seven
  • Natural Born Bakers
  • Bake It Or Leaven It
  • Driving the last pikelet
  • Pie crust on the dancefloor
  • Tomorrow never pies
  • Murder on the pie crust
  • The pie who came in from the cold.
  • You only bake twice (Every body has to make one sweet and one savoury dish).


So that is our list, anyone else got better ideas?
