Premiering on Thursday, February 4th at 8:30pm on 3, this summer’s hottest new show, Nestle New Zealand’s Hottest Home Baker, is celebrating New Zealand’s love affair with home baking.
This brand new reality series, hosted by New Zealand’s Next Top Model judge Colin Mathura–Jeffree, with judges Dean Brettschneider and Pauline Nunns, features eight top amateur home bakers from across New Zealand competing for the grand prize of $20,000 and title of New Zealand’s Hottest Home Baker.
“Nestle New Zealand’s Hottest Home Baker is a series that showcases love and emotion through food,” explains Mathura–Jeffree. “It’s fascinating to watch the sophistication, dedication, and disasters…,” he adds.
Avid bakers, contestants were chosen from hundreds of applications from across the country, each bringing their own signature baking dish to the show, as well as their unique style of baking and personality!
“They’re incredibly varied, they came from all across New Zealand,” Mathura–Jeffree says of the eight contestants. “Their common link, however, is in a bowl and in the recipes, and of course the wanting to share their yummy goodies!”
From cupcakes, pies and pavlovas, to baking and decorating the perfect cake, each episode will hold a fresh and delicious challenge to test the contestants baking versatility and inventiveness.
“I am so glad to be part of all this great series,” Mathura–Jeffree continues. “I get to taste the bake goods of some of the country’s top bakers…”
