GBBS's prioritization of craft, skill, and consistency levels its playing field... setting it apart from other popular cooking competition shows like Tom Colicchio's self-aggrandizingTop Chefor Gordon Ramsay's testosterone-fueledMasterChef.

The contest itself had been perfectly baked, as far as the producers were concerned. What you don't want in such things is an over-enthusiastic rise followed by a sudden collapse, but here the tension and uncertainty held up to the very end.

One of the best things about [The Great British Baking Show] is that, while the contestants and challenges may change, the show's basic recipe remains consistent

[Series 3] turned the contest from a cult concern to a bona fide phenomenon.

Mary Berry is now officially the nation's surrogate granny, because she's so much more perfect than our real nans. Not only does she make beautiful cakes, but she doesn't smoke or drink or dribble; she looks clean and fragrant.

Perhaps the most entertaining part of any episode of The Great British Baking Show is the crazy levels of tension wrung out of the bakers pacing, staring daggers through their oven doors, and willing their bakes to rise.

Very, very decent: That's the best way to describe The Great British Baking Show.

What one realizes, without getting very far into the breads, cakes and tarts, is what a perfect show it's been.

Jun 21, 2018 | Full Review…

The standard of baking has risen like a perfect soufflé with each series - some of the showstopper cakes in this first round are truly amazing - but mistakes are still made. Dusting a cake tin with salt instead of sugar is never a good idea.

Barring John's injury and his surprise victory, it's otherwise a fairly standard Bake Off outing.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

This show really is good enough to eat.
