Wall of Bakers is a spin-off of Food Network Canada’s competition series Wall of Chefs, featuring amateur bakers. The series tests the skill and nerves of Canada’s home bakers as they battle in the Wall of Bakers kitchen, under the towering shadow of the country’s best pastry chefs.
In each episode, four amateur bakers face-off in three rounds of sweet competition. In the first round, they prepare the desserts that have made them famous at home, their crowd-pleasers. In the second round, they are challenged to think on the fly and come up with a dessert using two ingredients that are staples in the home pantry of one of the chefs on the Wall. In the third and final round, the last two home bakers are inspired by another chef’s signature dessert to make their own bakery-worthy creation.
Through it all, the Wall is watching, stacked with twelve of the biggest names in baking. The chefs offer colour commentary and expertise throughout all three challenges while tasting, judging, and eliminating one home baker in every round. After a final deliberation, the last home baker standing wins the $10,000 cash prize.
Wall of Bakers is hosted by television personality Noah Cappe and the 24 pastry chefs and experts on ‘The Wall’ include: Elizabeth Charlton, Lynn Crawford, Christine Cushing, Patrice Demers, Stephanie Duong, Farzam Fallah, Domenic Giammarella, Andrew Han, Steve Hodge, Christinn Hua, Jenna Hutchinson, Lenore Johnson, Shobna Kannusamy, Ashley Kosowan, Ricardo Larrivée, Tracey Muzzolini, Jo Notkin, Raveena Oberoi, Tara O’Brady, Anna Olson, Guy Rawlings, Amy Rosen, David Rousseau, and Joanne Yolles.
