The Great Canadian Baking Show
The Great Canadian Baking Show was CBC’s homegrown take on the hit UK format The Great British Bake Off. The series premiered November 1, 2017 on CBC, and brought together 10 amateur bakers from across the country to compete in a series of themed culinary challenges that celebrated their diverse backgrounds, families and communities. Each of the eight one-hour episodes in the first series featured three rounds: The Signature Bake, the Technical Bake and the Show Stopper. After the judges tasted and critiqued the bakes, they crowned one Star Baker and asked one baker to leave the tent. The final three bakers competed for the Great Canadian Baking Show title.
On May 27th 2020, the CBC announced that the Great Canadian Baking Show would return to the schedule in the winter of 2020-21.
