The Great Australian Bake Off

The Bakers

Ben

Baker

A night in front of the television turned Ben’s interest in baking into a passion.

Nathan

Baker

Baking is more than elaborate cakes, breads and biscuits for Nathan. It brings back vivid memories of family, backyard get-togethers and the overpowering smell of cakes wafting from the kitchen.

Peter

Baker

Doctor Peter is a self-described bread tragic. Wholemeal, rye, fruit, sourdough: you name it.

Suzy

Baker

Love is the reason why Suzy learned to bake. Now her children are benefiting from her hobby, though even their sweet tooth has a limit.

Meg

Baker

Family feasts are where Meg finds inspiration for her baking. Studying education and Spanish at university, Meg is a self-taught baker, learning from cookbooks and cooking shows.

Jasmin

Baker

With a good old-fashioned cup of tea never far from her side, English expat Jasmin puts the Cool into Britannia with her calm demeanor under pressure and mouthwatering baked treats.

Angela

Baker

Angela is amateur baking royalty. She has been competing at the Royal Melbourne Show since she was four-years-old and enters up to 40 categories of bake into the show every year.

James

Baker

Baking an intricate pastry or a tiered cake under pressure can be stressful for some. But for James, slaving away in the kitchen takes him to the land of Zen.

Sian

Baker

Fashion and art are two of Sian’s passions, which are best illustrated in her baking. Recently graduating from Perth’s WAAPA, where she studied costume design, Sian is a keen artist and loves drawing Victorian-era style paintings.

Brendan

Baker

Baking has always been a major part of Brendan’s life. He started baking when he was aged six and it was all he could think about for years.
