We were all away together on a family holiday last week and managed to watch the GBBO together for the first time in a long time!

I was intrigued about this weeks technical challenge. It didn’t seem to bear any resemblance to anything I’d made in the past. It certainly wasn’t like any pastry recipes I’d tried. I can see why the bakers got confused – it felt like it belonged in bread week rather than pastry week! What to know what a flaouna is?
