We are late to this party, but the best thing we have watched since the start of the Christmas break is Netflix’s Formula 1: Drive to Survive. F1 wasn’t our thing, but this series is so interesting, we’re hooked. We just thought we’d mention it in case you flick past it when you’re looking for something to watch, just like we used to. 

At the other end of the reality series scale, if you don’t adore the Great British Bake Off, you’re a monster. Even this Vanity Fair review by a professional baker of 2 contestants’ efforts from the current season won’t see us break faith with the weekly dose of good, wholesome content…

This week we were introduced to the concept of snacking cake – simple to make, impossible to walk past without carving a slice. Our opening gambit: this strawberry sheet cake. Strawbs are such a good price ATM – and they’re delicious – so get it in your belly.
