BBC Looking for Amateur Bakers

WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE PART IN A NEW BBC BAKING SERIES?


Are you a keen amateur baker?   Are you passionate about your hobby?  Can you turn out a half decent cake, tart or loaf of bread?  Do you fancy putting your skills to the test? 


BBC2 is making an exciting new prime time series called 'The Great British Bake Off' and is looking for amateur bakers from across the country to take part.  During the series the bakers will be given a series of baking tasks and one will ultimately be crowned the UK's best amateur baker. 


However long you've been baking for, we'd love to hear from you.  If you're interested in applying to take part in the series and would like to find out more, please email baking@loveproductions.co.uk or call 0207 067 4855.


To apply you must be over 16 on 1st May 2010.  As an "amateur baker" your main source of income cannot come from commercial baking and / or cooking in a professional environment and you cannot have ever worked full time as a baker. You cannot have any formal NVQ or other professional catering qualifications acquired in the last 10 years.
