Of all the things Tabs was, low-carb wasn’t one of them. That cat loved his bread. Sourdough, French, honey whole wheat — if it was bread and I was eating it, I was sharing it with Tabs.
It was one of his many enduring quirks.
Not a lot of people know this, but Tabs was supposed to be one of the original hosts on The Great British Baking Show. He was cast as the Paul Hollywood character.
Yeah, we flew over to the UK and spent a few weeks filming the pilot episode. Like, we were literally in the tent.
I think it was week three or four when we found out Tabs had been cast as the main character in the Spider-Cat movie, and it was his chance to fulfill one of his lifelong career dreams to work with Jon Favreau, so we bid adieu to The Great British Baking Show and returned home…
Paul Hollywood stepped into the tent, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Every once in a while, I make one of Tabs’ favorite recipes. This weekend, I busted out his world-famous catnip-infused 🧁 cupcakes, and of course I also made a rustic rosemary catnip loaf in honor of my little bread lover. 🥖
