Tamal's Middle Eastern Raised Game Pie
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Tamal: "I'm doing a Middle Eastern flavored game pie, and then I'm frying the meat in a spice mix. So it's Ras El Hanout and then some extra cinnamon. Ras El Hanout isn't chilly, it isn't hot. There's a little bit of pepper. Aromatic."

Voice Over: "Tamal's spices will flavor his rabbit, pigeon and venison filling ... with almonds, apricots and minced lamb completing his Arabian theme."

Mary Berry: "Having minced lamb means that it will hold together, which is good. It makes a much better pie. Fat is our friend."

Mary Berry: "Overall, the bake looks fantastic. The overall appearance, particularly of the top, I think is most attractive. These roses look great. Look how moist it is in there. You can see it's almost setting itself. The mince lamb would have done part of this job for you." 

"That's very clever. It has that spiciness, not too much spice, not to knock you back. It's a gentle blend of spices. Do you know what? That's fantastic. Really well done. Thank you."

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.
