The Great Australian Bake Off Starts Tuesday July 9
Anna Gare will host the show with Shane Jacobson with Kerry Vincent and Dan Lepard judging the dishes.
Bake Off will have the same format as the UK version with a the Signature Bake, the Technical Bake and the ShowStopper Bake. Each week one person is named the Star Baker and one person is eliminated.
There are ten contestants duking it out for the title of the best Australian baker. I will put up seperate blog post on these bakers.
I have seen the first episode and it is good and even though it sticks to Kerry Vincent and Dan Lepard are fantastic, with Kerry not shirking from doing the job she is there for that is to judge. Fans of Anna Gare will be happy as she is exactly what you expect and Shane Jacobson does crack one good joke in the first episode but I am still not sure what he is doing there.
It sticks to the British Bake Off format but razzles it up a bit with more colour and music. Fans of cooking shows will definantly like it.
Funnily enough because of the delay in the series starting the official cookbook has already hit the stores.
The Great Australian Bake Off starts on NINE on Tuesday July 9 at 8.00pm.
