If, like me, you have an interest in everything to do with baking, have you heard that there is to be a new TV programme starting on Monday, 26th November? It is scheduled for ITV 1 between 4.00 and 5.00pm each weekday, running for 4 weeks, and is entitled ‘Britain’s Best Bakery’.
More than a food competition, this series will be a celebration of bakeries across the UK, the delicious goods that they produce, their regional specialities and their centuries of old baking heritage. Critics will be sampling the delicacies of the country’s favourite independent, family run and community bakeries, tasting their way through breads, cakes, pastries and pies.
The shortlisted bakeries will also compete in a series of baking challenges that put their skills to the test and the programme will also reveal the heart-warming stories of the bakeries and the people who lovingly create and bake within them.
I’ll be watching, or recording it, will you?
