Interview: Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith on the Return of the ‘Great American Baking Show’

Thanks to the incredible success of the Great British Bake Off on Netflix, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood have settled nicely into their place as the cultural arbiters of what makes for a proper British dessert. Now, they’re (metaphorically) headed across the pond for a re-imagined version of the Great American Baking Show, which means that after 13 seasons of watching charming Britons make cakes and pastries on televisions, Americans are finally getting a baking competition of our own. Putting together a proper American version of the baking competition has been, apparently, complicated. The...

Elizabeth, the Michelin-Starred Restaurant Founded by Iliana Regan, Will Close After 10 Years in Chicago

Elizabeth, where Iliana Regan’s “new gatherer cuisine” often mixed her love of the woods with unexpected forays into pop culture, will close in December after a decade in Lincoln Square. Owner Tim Lacey says he’ll replace Elizabeth with a new tasting-menu restaurant, Atelier, with a new chef next year. Lacey, who’s been running Elizabeth since 2020, is interviewing candidates to replace executive chef Ian Jones.

‘The Menu’ and Its Twist Ending, Explained

‘The Menu’ and Its Twist Ending, Explained

As The Menu, director Mark Mylod’s chilling send-up of the world of exclusive fine dining, hurtled toward its dramatic ending, something in my brain broke. After almost two hours of being completely terrified — Ralph Fiennes is cold and chilling as chef Julian Slowik, an egomaniac driven to violence by his obsession with culinary perfection at his restaurant Hawthorne — I started laughing uncontrollably. (Note: Major spoilers for the ending ahead.) Finally, after torturing his guests and letting the woman he sexually harassed stab him in the leg, chef Julian’s vision becomes painfully funny....

The lineup, available in shops and online, is heavy on collector’s tins, including one that’s a music box and one shaped like a double-decker bus. If you, for some reason, are sick of your Christmas biscuit tins not doubling as light-up home decor, rest easy — prayers answered. For anyone else wondering why Target is importing a holiday collection from a British grocery store, let me explain. Here is what you...

Why Thanksgiving Pies Are More Expensive This Year

Why Thanksgiving Pies Are More Expensive This Year

We often presume to understand restaurant economics because we know what a chicken breast costs at the supermarket. “I could make this dish at home for $5,” goes the refrain. Could we? Here, Eater looks at all the costs in a popular restaurant dish to see what goes into it, and how much profit comes out. Despite the steady drumbeat about inflation, it still shocks to see a Thanksgiving pecan pie cost $50. While the rate of national inflation has finally begun to ease (down to 7.7 percent in October from a high of...
