A Delight to invite into my home each week
18 September 2013 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

__As an American watching this British Baking Show, I am relieved at the pace and concept as compared to American "Food" shows -- America has turned most of their food shows into a contest, showing only those cooks and bakers that demonstrate the zeal of capitalism in their quest for the top prize (almost always money) -- Thanks Bees that this British production includes the backgrounds of each contestant -- Another highlight is each episode features at least one "historically" significant tour near or at the area of the baking TENT. – Through these vignettes I have learned a great deal about the origins and purpose of many baked goods -- Even though Mr. Hollywood seems a gruff judge, he is much more humane than many of our "American" Chefs who dominate the U.S. shows – Judge Mary is such a delight, and I would have never known her impact on British Home Baking if I had not seen this show !!! The helpful comments of each of these judges is reason alone to cherish this show -- That both Mary and Mr. Hollywood also prepare the featured contest baked goods is a worthy part of the show -- The two hosts of the show use their comedic talents in a useful way to help the contestants keep focus during the challenges -- A pleasure always to tune into "The Great British Bakeoff".
