The Great British Bake Off

It’s that time again! The Great British Bake Off returns to our screens and 12 homebakers once again compete to be crowned the Great British Bake Off’s Best Amateur Baker.

They’ll no doubt be tested to the limits during the process as judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood put them through their paces testing everything from their ability to bake biscuits, pies and tarts to their skills at rolling pastry, creating 3-dimensional desserts and surviving under the pressure of the bake-off tent.

And the nation will look on with a renewed appreciation for home baking and home cooking that will inspire many of us to head into the kitchen and test out our own culinary skills.

If The Great British Bake Off inspires you to get creative in the kitchen, here are some savory recipes you can try, all with a little John Ross Jr. smoked salmon of course.

To test out your pastry rolling skills try this Leek and Smoked Salmon Tart by James Martin. The recipe requires ready-made pastry but you could take the challenge a little further and make your own.

If you’re looking to improve you pie-making skills, try this delicious Smoked Salmon, Dill and Potato Pie from The whole recipe can be prepared and cooked in under an hour.

Great British Chefs has a great Whole Wheat and Quinoa Biscuit with Smoked Salmon recipe if you want to turn your hand to baking some savoury biscuits. For a dairy–free version, substitute the cows’ milk and butter in the biscuits for oat milk and coconut oil, and serve without sour cream.

Or simply take some John Ross Jr traditional smoked salmon, select ingredients from your food cupboard and set yourself the task of seeing what you can create with them!

Let us know what you create during Series 6 of The Great British Bake Off over on our Facebook page.
