A New Baking Show Was Just Released On Netflix & It’s Entirely Canadian
Cakes and Canada, what more could you want?! As Netflix continues to expand its ever-growing content library, the streaming service has begun to dig into shows from all over the world. Recently, the platform added The Great Canadian Baking Show, and the reality series has already become a huge hit with viewers.
The Great Canadian Baking Show first kicked off back in 2017 and has since delivered three very successful seasons to audiences. The series follows the same format as it’s British predecessor and chronicles 10 amateur Canadian bakers as they compete against one another in an array of skill-testing challenges.
In each episode, contestants compete in a total of three rounds—the technical bake, the signature bake, and the showstopper. Every week, a competitor is sent home until only three remain and compete for the show’s grand prize.
Previous categories seen on the show include Canadian themed treats, best of Britain, holiday baking, biscuits and bars, and French patisserie, among many others that are sure to have you in the mood to eat.
Not only does The Great Canadian Baking Show highlight the skills of some very talented Canadian bakers, but it also happens to be hosted and judged by some of our country's most beloved names as well.
Schitt’s Creek creator and star Dan Levy was a host on the show’s first two seasons, alongside British-Canadian actress, Julia Chan. In season three, Carolyn Taylor and Aurora Browne took over as hosts of the series.
As far as judges go, French-Canadian chef Bruno Feldeisen has been featured on all three of the show’s seasons. Canadian-Australian Rochelle Adonis was a judge on the first two seasons but was eventually replaced by Toronto native Kyla Kennaley for season three.
Earlier this month, Netflix also added a fourth season of its hilarious hit amateur baking show Nailed It! to the streaming service. If major kitchen fails and fast-paced competition is your cup of tea, you definitely need to add it to your watch list.
The first two seasons of The Great Canadian Baking Show are available now for streaming on Netflix. It’s unclear exactly when the third season will be added to the platform, although it is currently available for your viewing pleasure on CBC Gem.
