Project Bakeover preview
Coming from Canada, Project Bakeover is hosted by Steve Hodge, who is a pastry chef, master chocolatier and entrepreneur. You might know him as a judge on dessert competition series Great Chocolate Showdown (yum!). While he helps bakers re-think their menus and recipes, his co-host, designer Tiffany Pratt, works on upgrading the retail space. Pratt also appeared in Buy IT, Fix IT, Sell IT and Canada's Home to Win.
The format of the series is pretty straightforward, with Hodge and Pratt overhauling a bakery over the course of a week. Viewers can follow Hodge as he capitalises on his vast experience to offer the bakers recipe advice and help them figure out which tasty goods can turn a profit. At the same time, Pratt uses her flair for interior design to renovate the bakeries so that they look more welcoming to potential clients.
The bakers featured on the series all have inspiring stories but struggle with their bakeries, so they welcome the outside help. In 1 episode, for instance, a mum and daughter have issues with organisation and leadership at their family-run Filipino bakery. In another, a self-taught baker succeeded in turning her home-based business into a fully-fledged bakery, but customers aren't showing up.
Project Bakeover is a series about talented business owners who find themselves overwhelmed and get a lifeline to bring their bakeries to the next level. If you're looking for something relaxing to watch after a long day, you can't go wrong with this.
