MEDIA RELEASE: Monday 16th May, 2016
Get out your rolling pins and muffin pans! Production has just commenced on the highly anticipated second season of LifeStyle FOOD’s breakout hit from last year, THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF.
Produced by FremantleMedia Australia exclusively for Foxtel, the 10-part series started filming in Sydney last week with 12 new bakers donning their aprons and taking their spot in the iconic Bake Off shed.
Over the coming weeks, these home baking enthusiasts will take on up to 30 mouth-watering challenges that will test their baking prowess, creativity and skill in a bid to find the country’s best baker.
Culinary icon Maggie Beer and acclaimed chef Matt Moran will once again be judging the amazing creations and determining the all-important results. Comedians Claire Hooper and Mel Buttle are also back to host the second series and lend their moral support to the bakers.
Foxtel’s first series of THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF premiered on LifeStyle FOOD in October last year and achieved record numbers for the channel. The launch was the highest rating program on FOOD ever, with subsequent episodes continuing to break viewing records.
The second series of THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF will premiere on LifeStyle FOOD later this year.
THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF is a FremantleMedia Australia production for Foxtel based on a format created by Love Productions and broadcast by the BBC in the United Kingdom.
