‘The coolest thing': Great British Bake Off champion crowned
Mandal beats Ruby Bhogal and Kim-Joy after making doughnuts and an ‘edible landscape’
A Rotherham-based Indian research scientist who started baking only two years ago has been crowned champion of this year’s Great British Bake Off.
Dr Rahul Mandal said winning the programme was “the coolest thing that I have done in my life”. He said he had gained confidence by appearing on the show, adding: “I hope it helps me try new things and be a bit more adventurous in baking and life itself.”
