Following a successful first series, Britain’s Best Bakery returns to ITV Daytime for a second run.
Expert judges Mich Turner MBE (TV chef, author and owner of Little Venice Cake Company) and Peter Sidwell (TV chef, cookery writer and restaurateur) will be sampling the delicacies of the country’s favourite independent, family run and community bakeries, tasting and critiquing their way through breads, cakes, pastries and pies.
The shortlisted bakeries compete in a series of baking challenges in various central judging locations that put their skills to the test, from Chelsea buns to lemon meringue pie and from sausage rolls to apple tarte tatins. More than a food competition this series is a celebration of local bakeries around the UK, the delicious goods they produce, their regional specialities and their centuries old baking heritage.
Stripped across six weeks (30 x 60’), the daily episodes of Britain’s Best Bakery will also reveal the heart-warming stories of the bakeries and the people who lovingly create and bake there.
Britain’s Best Bakery is a Shine Production for ITV. The Executive Producer for Shine TV is Sacha Baveystock and Series Producer is Karen Richardson.
