Production commences on third season of
THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF
Series to premiere on Lifestyle FOOD later this year.
The tent is up, the ovens preheated and some of the country’s best amateur bakers are ready to do baking battle in the third season of Lifestyle FOOD’s deliciously successful series, 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 and creativity 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 bakers on their skills at making cakes, breads, pastries and desserts of all kinds. Comedians Claire Hooper and Mel Buttle are also back to host the third season, armed with an arsenal of fresh baking puns.
THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF has been a huge success for Lifestyle FOOD, with the first two series continually breaking viewing records and finishing as the number one program in the channel’s history across all metrics. The third season of THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF will premiere later this year
