Voice-Over: "When it comes to her ingredients. Hermine isn't playing it safe." 

Hermine: "I was trying to be a bit adventurous. I thought, try salmon and cheese. I don't even know if that's a combination." 

Voice-Over: "Hermine will be hoping her salmon and cheese flavors knit together well alongside her sweet loaf of dry fruits soaked in orange liqueur."

Prue Leith: "I think overall they look really nice. I think the idea of putting a smoked salmon in it is so original. I've never had that. You invented a bread that I really like." 

Paul Hollywood: "The salmon in there really works. It's like a whole sandwich all in one. The aftertaste is lovely as well. That's nice - that is well baked." 

Prue Leith: "Well, that's a very grown up fruitcake. Lots of booze. Lovely." 

Hermine: "I've soaked the fruit for a couple of weeks." 

Paul Hollywood: "A couple of weeks?"   

Prue Leith: "She wanted us to taste it, so it's lovely." 

Paul Hollywood: "I think they're very special. I really do. I love the fact that I've never had them before. This is really complex in its flavors. I love it. It's special."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
