Set in the beautiful grounds of Werribee Mansion, The Great Australian Bake Off is hosted by Shane and home cook extraordinaire Anna Gare.

Ten top home baking enthusiasts will be put through a series of gruelling weekly elimination challenges, baking a mouth-watering selection of cakes, pies, tarts, pastries, bread, biscuits and desserts, in the hope of being crowned Australia’s Best Home Baker.

The contestants will need to impress two of the toughest judges in the business: Dan Lepard, an Australian- born baker and author, who is one of the world’s most widely read and highly respected bakers; and Kerry Vincent, dubbed the “Simon Cowell of cake”. Born and raised in Western Australia, Kerry is a self-taught designer who revolutionised the US wedding cake industry.

The franchise began on the BBC TWO in 2010, the UK format is a ratings phenomenon with its series three finale last night drawing its highest ever peak audience of 7.2 million and attracting a record-breaking average of 6.5 million viewers.

The US Network CBS has also just announced it will commission a full American series. The franchise created by Love Productions and distributed by BBC Worldwide has been adapted in Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Poland, Ireland, Norway and France.

Programming Production Executive Courtney Gibson said: “It’s time to get your scone on, folks! The Great Australian Bake Off will bring together the country’s most imaginative and accomplished home bakers to dish up amazing treats for two judges they will really want to impress. Featuring famous Aussie treats as well as epic new bakes, this is a show that will have the whole country shouting, Mum, can I lick the beater?”

The versatile Shane Jacobson, one of Australia’s favourite personalities, will co-host the new series with Anna Gare, a home cook extraordinaire who has become one of Australia’s favourite TV chefs.

Shane Jacobson says: “I love spending time in the kitchen at home but to get a chance to work with professionals around an oven is something that thrills me greatly. I am delighted to be working with Anna Gare. Not only is she a whiz at cooking and baking but her charming, relaxed nature makes her a joy to be around. Not to mention the fact that I intend to steal a few of her baking ideas to try at home, in the name of research of course.”

Co-host Anna Gare says: “I’m thrilled to join the search for Australia’s Best Home Baker. To be working alongside Shane and two of the world’s finest baking professionals is a special treat for me. I’m tipping Australians will be spending a lot more time in the kitchen once they feast their eyes on the goodies our contestants serve up.”
