The Great American Baking Show, based on the hit UK series, "The Great British Bake Off", is hosted by Nia Vardalos ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding") and husband Ian Gomez ("Cougar Town"). "The Great Holiday Baking Show" stars some of the nation's best amateur bakers as they compete in a series of themed challenges and eliminations all hoping to be crowned Holiday Baking Champion. For four weeks, James Beard Award-Winning pastry chef and author, Johnny Iuzzini, joins England's "Royal Queen of Baking", author and television personality Mary Berry, as they judge the decadent and delicious holiday fare these bakers create as they throw down their best culinary skills.
This week's challenge is all about Christmas cookies. Armed with only their skills, their imaginations and drive to win, these bakers compete in three challenges: Signature Bake, showcasing their family recipes as they create two sets of cookies that are both delicious and unique; Technical Bake, a surprise recipe where they must demonstrate precision and technique; and finally, The Showstopper Bake, where the bakers are asked to create elaborate flavorful gingerbread houses.
This week's Signature Bake is a traditional yule log. The Technical Bake features a surprise recipe based on judge Johnny Iuzzini's Italian heritage, and finally, The Showstopper Bake has the bakers bringing their unique take to holiday fruitcake while incorporating a "Twelve Days of Christmas" theme.
This week's Signature Bake finds the bakers making breakfast pastries, perfect for Christmas morning. The Technical Bake features one of judge Mary Berry's most festive and fruity recipes. And the Showstopper finds the bakers building elaborate centerpieces from cream puffs and other puffed pastry pieces.
It's Final Week in the holiday tent as the remaining three bakers face off in their final three challenges, all hoping to be named the winner on "The Great Holiday Baking Show".
