The wait is over – The Great South African Bake Off is back on Tuesdays at 8pm!
We’re dying to see what the new crop of contestants has in store for us in the new season. Last year’s show was full of fun recipes and plot twists, and saw Dot Dicks emerge with the baking crown.
But first, take some time to be properly introduced to the new presenter, Lentswe Bhengu:
Lentswe’s love of all things yummy led him to eventually become a trained chef in 2010 after a career in investment finance. Since then, he’s shown off his cooking talents at many top South African restaurants from Savoy Cabbage and Saucisse Deli to The Roundhouse Restuarant. In fact, for some SA Bake Off fans his smile might be familiar from Soweto TV’s Kasi Kitchen or SABC3’s Expresso. Lentswe will be taking his place next to the funny Anne Hirsch for season 2 of The Great South African Bake Off…
Here’s a sneak peak at this year’s contenders:
- The the Great South African Bake Off S2 starts on 18 October on BBC Lifestyle, channel 174 at 8pm
