Ep. 304: Jürgen Krauss of ‘The Great British Baking Show,’ and investigative journalist Carl Bernstein

February 3, 2022

This week on Unorthodox, we’re all self-upgrading to business class.

Our Jewish guest is investigative journalist Carl Bernstein, of Watergate team Woodward and Bernstein, whose new memoir is Chasing History: A Kid in the Newsroom.

Our gentile of the week is The Great British Baking Show semifinalist Jürgen Krauss, who won our hearts with his Passover pavlova recipe on season 9. Krauss, who isn’t Jewish himself but is married to a Jewish woman and raising a Jewish family, tells us about representing his family’s Jewish faith in his flavors. He also shares an exclusive Passover plava recipe with Unorthodox—check it out here!
