Who will be crowned Best Baker in America? Eight bakers put their baking skills on the line in this new Food Network show featuring Jason Smith, the recent Food Network Star winner.
The delicate, sweet bite of a perfectly baked cake can make anyone smile. Besides the delicious morsel, that cake can be a visual masterpiece. The best bakers are celebrated because of their talent. The new show Best Baker in America on the Food Network seeks to determine the best of the best.
The new show premiers on the Food Network on September 27. According the Food Network, the first episode will feature:
"Eight of America’s top bakers gather to put their baking brilliance to the test. Host and editor of Bon Appetit magazine, Adam Rapoport, announces that in the first Skills Challenge, the bakers must create flawless mini upside-down cakes. Then, in the Master Challenge, the bakers are tasked with making a double barrel or three-tiered wedding cake for 50 people using lemon as the featured flavor. After deliberation with the judges, Food Network Star winner Jason Smith and The Kitchen’s Marcela Valladolid, one baker is eliminated."

Many people will be watching this show because the recently crowned Food Network Star, Jason Smith, is featured. Everyone loves his signature catch phrases, like Lord Honey and Butter my butt and call me a biscuit. Who knows what fun Kentucky phrases that Jason will say during this new show. But, I can’t wait.
Additionally, I think the pairing of Jason Smith and Adam Rapoport is genius. Rapoport is witty and knowledgeable. Seeing those two culinary powerhouses together on screen should be television gold.
As for the eight baking contestants, who knows what will happen? But, it will be fun to watch. Here’s how to tune in.
I will be watching, will you? Get your country bling ready for the Best Baker in America premier.
