Bake Off 2014 was compulsive viewing and caught the imagination of the country. This programme looks back over the incredible bakes of the last series, from Luis's amazing 3D biscuit scene, via the technically challenging schichttorte to Ian's binning of his baked alaska. We hear what the bakers from 2014 really thought about their time in the tent, share their memories and catch up with what they have been doing since.
The Great British Bake Off sees ten passionate home bakers take part in a bake-off to test every aspect of their baking skills as they battle to be crowned the Great British Bake Off's best amateur baker. Each week the nationwide tour sees keen bakers put through three challenges in a particular discipline.
The competition kicks off with cake in the Cotswolds, then moves to Scotland to tackle biscuit baking, then Sandwich in Kent for bread, Bakewell in Derbyshire for puddings, Mousehole in Cornwall for the pastry challenges, and London for the grand final.
Judging the baking are renowned baking writer Mary Berry and professional baker Paul Hollywood; presenting the show are Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, who trace the very particular history of British baking by visiting local baking landmarks and discovering why people bake what they bake today.
