For all the cooking competition fans out there, Netflix just launched Baking Impossible (on Wednesday, October 6th) with Boston’s very own Joanne Chang (award-winning baker, cookbook author and chef-owner of Flour Bakery + Cafe and Myers + Chang) sitting in as a judge. The show features teams of bakers and engineers working together to create culinary masterpieces that are delicious and able to stand up to some pretty serious stress tests (like smashing car cakes into walls or making sure boat cakes can actually float). Tune in to watch judge Chang taste these creations and decide who makes it to the finals and wins $100,000.
No need to watch on an empty stomach: the team at Flour have designed a fun and tasty baking kits so you bring the excitement right into your kitchen (and give you something to stress nibble while you watch). Get your hands on their Brown Butter Rice Krispie Robot Kit (for $29) packed with marshmallows, rice krispie cereal, sugar, salt, vanilla, blue food coloring, candy and wooden sticks (all you need to have at home is butter and whole milk). Order your kit online, post photos of your masterpiece on Instagram (make sure to tag @flourbakeryandcafe, @joannebchang, #flourrobots) before Monday, October 18th and the best rendition will win a prize. Get your edible robot kit through Flour’s website, tune into Baking Impossible on Netflix and get ready to see how sweet science can be.
