Hulu’s new show proves that anyone can be a baker. “Baker’s Dozen” follows thirteen avid bakers— professional and amateur—competing to win $5,000 and the golden rolling pin trophy.
The show consists of three rounds. In the first, the bakers are judged by the creativity, presentation, and execution of their work. The top five bakers then move onto round two, which is all about taste, and they must create a baker’s dozen of identical pastries. After the second round, the competitors are cut from five to three, and after the third round, a champion is crowned.
Arguably the show’s most interesting aspect is the way it shows how a love of baking can come at any time. While the professionals have perfected their craft for years, the home bakers have spent years whipping up desserts for their families. And“Baker’s Dozen” is hosted by two individuals who have experience in the professional and amateur baking world—former White House pastry chef Bill Yosses and former “Sister, Sister” and “The Real” star Tamera Mowry-Housley.
The first season is now available to stream on Hulu.
The Knockturnal had the opportunity to speak with Yosses and Mowry-Housley about the show and their experience as bakers.
