Monday Morsel: American Baking Competition
Well, I'm hooked. Anyone else?
If you're not sure what this show is about, read this:
A new competition baking series on CBS! The American Baking
Competition will feature skilled amateur Americans competing in
baking challenges with one ultimately being crowned the winner.
The 10 bakers were chosen from a nationwide search of amateur
bakers at local casting bake-offs. Proving the joy of baking's broad
appeal, the six female and four male home bakers have varied lives
and jobs, including a firefighter, photographer, homemaker, attorney,
advertiser, home health care provider, college student, retiree,
project manager and a baking enthusiast trying to go pro.
Each week, The American Baking Competition will feature these
passionate home bakers competing in three unique challenges -
"Signature Bake," "Technical Bake" and "Showstopper Bake." The
contestant who out-bakes the rest is that week's "Star Baker," while
the one whose creations fail to impress is eliminated. The final
challenge will be between the three remaining contestants, one of
whom will go on to be crowned the best amateur baker in America and
win the $250,000 grand prize. The winner will also be awarded a
publishing contract with Simon & Schuster to publish their own
cookbook with Gallery Books. The Series -- shot on location in North
-- premieres Wednesday, May 29th at 8/7c!
