Casting commences for brand new season of THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF


Are you passionate about your pastry? Are you a legend in the baking? Does your sponge rise to the challenge?

Foxtel has now released an official casting call for the upcoming new season of The Great Australian Bake Off.

The Great Australian Bake Off last aired on the Foxtel’s Lifestyle channel in 2019. TV Blackbox exclusively revealed the news earlier this year that the popular cooking format would finally be returning.

There is no word from Foxtel yet on whether they intend to revamp the series or if the original presenter line-up of Matt Moran, Maggie Beer, Mel Buttle and Claire Hooper will be returning.

 The commissioning of a new season of The Great Australian Bake Off comes at time when Foxtel is looking to dramatically increase its investment in lifestyle programming. The pay-tv provider has also confirmed production will soon commence on two new series, Selling In The City and The Repair Shop Australia.

From biscuits to bread, pies to pavlovas could you be ready to step into The Bake Off Shed, throw on your apron and have your bakes judged by two of Australia’s most beloved culinary icons?

Producers are eager to ensure all contestants must be amateur cooks. The casting call indicates entrants must not have worked as a professional chef, baker, caterer, recipe writer or food technologist nor have you worked professionally in this capacity for a total of more than 8 weeks in the last 8 years.

Potential contestants must prove they have also not completed any professional cooking or catering qualifications (such as tertiary or TAFE) in the last 10 years.

Contestants can apply here.
