The great British bake-off candidate Freya wrote a delightful farewell letter afterwards leave the show on Tuesdayencouraging viewers to try veganism.
The 19-year-old, the youngest candidate in the history of the show, reflected on her exit after the German Week and thanked her baker colleagues with the message.
“That was by far the best experience of my life,” she wrote. “I could never have imagined meeting so many incredible people in such a short time.”
“I feel really blessed to be able to share my love for vegan baking with the world,” added Freya.
“If I’ve just inspired one person to be vegan, that’s more of an achievement for me than winning any day of the week.”
The teenager urged fans to try it out for themselves, adding, “It’s not such a fallacy, I promise. Thank you all.’
The student taught the nation how to make delicious baked goods without animal products.
Freya couldn’t use alternative ingredients in the technical challenges faced by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith – and for good reason.
She explained why in a post shared on Instagram earlier on the show and said, “I really wanted to show the world [that] Vegan baking is just as exciting, with the hope of inspiring people to try it out.
“For obvious reasons, I couldn’t change the technical challenge as it would mean the entire show was unfair.”
“I’m sorry if this is disappointing, but once the show ends, I plan to veganize the recipes for all of you so I hope this makes up for that,” added Freya.
Freya left the show in German Week, while Giuseppe was named star baker.
Great British Bake Off airs on Channel 4 on Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
