Great Canadian Baking Show

Recommended Posts

Not sure anyone has mentioned but CBC has developed a Great Canadian Baking Show. The first season is almost over, but i think all the episodes can be viewed at CBC online, (geographic restrictions limit viewing, unfortunately). 

 

It's the same format as the British show, but slightly fewer contestants and episodes. Judges are Bruno Feldeisen and Rochelle Adonis. Doing Mel-and-Sue duty are Dan Levy and Julie Chan. 

 

I've watched a few episodes and enjoyed it enough that I really hope they bring it back for more seasons. 

 

Anyone interested can read about it or watch it here:

Montana is so close to the Canada border that I feel I'm part Canadian!

Sounds good to me!

 

But do you know how to make Nanaimo Bars or tourtière? If not, you should watch The Great Canadian Baking Show to up your credentials. :DxD:)

...though as for that, you're more than welcome to pass over the Nanaimo bars and opt for butter tarts instead.

CBC aired a season of the Great British Baking Show in the weeks leading up to the Great Canadian Baking Show as well. 

 

I am rather enjoying the GCBS, it's a fun show to watch. I was pleasantly surprised they're doing quite a bit of traditional British baking, too.

 

Hopefully it'll be renewed!

 

 

(...and the only real butter tarts have raisins in them!)
