Savor These Images From Great British Bake Off's Latest Pastry Week

The custardy technical left us beaten, but the dual savory pie challenges had us hungry for more. Plus...clothes?

It's savory pies and...slightly different savory pies for pastry week. But you won't hear us complaining. Meat good! (Do we get to make that reference two weeks in a row? Why not?) There's also a Portuguese tart technical that we disagreed on. Hear us fight about it on this week's Two Spotted Dicks podcast!

We usually only talk about the food here (and the occasional eye-roll), but Sandi's cat blouse is important.

An almost-there tart, but the custard's too thick.

Poor Julia's wee little tart.

Yan redeems herself with a nearly perfect technical.

Perhaps this explains Julia's poor performance this week? There was no mention of wine in her ingredients.

Sophie's game pie with forest fruits. Yum!

Kate's potato curry topped with mango with a chili glaze.

In Julia's defense, she IS Russian, and this pie looks very Soviet.

Channel 4

Liam is our winner, despite the (delicious) mess on top. This sure sounded tasty, though!
