Britain's Best Bakery

Monday, 3 December 2012, 4:00PM – 5:00PM

A national search for Britain’s best bakery begins weekdays on ITV1.

More than a food competition this series is a celebration of local bakeries around the UK, the delicious goods they produce, their regional specialities and their centuries old baking heritage.

Expert judges Mich Turner MBE (TV chef, author and owner of Little Venice Cake Company) and Peter Sidwell (TV chef, cookery writer and restaurateur) will be sampling the delicacies of the country’s favourite independent, family run and community bakeries, tasting and critiquing their way through breads, cakes, pastries and pies.

In today’s episode the three competing independent bakeries are all from the flatlands of East Anglia. Expert Judges, cake maker to the stars Mich Turner MBE and authority on all things bread based, Peter Sidwell, discover a Brazilian Bakery in the University town of Cambridge. A bread maker showing off his unusual Donker Bread. And a Deli/Bakery in Norwich that’s a foodie’s paradise. But as ever, only one can progress into the next round.
