Are you an Afro-Caribbean amateur baker who is passionate about the food in your culture? Do you fancy putting your skills to the test?
BBC2 would like amateur bakers who can reflect the multicultural nature of Britain’s cuisine through their baking to take part in a new series. Whatever your passion – whether it’s fiery gingerbread, patties or spice buns, we want to hear from you.
The series is an exciting new prime time commission called ‘The Great British Bake Off’ and looking for amateur bakers from across the country to take part. During the series bakers will be given a series of 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
