Plot Synopsis

Eight of America's most elite bakers compete in BEST BAKER IN AMERICA, a six-episode competition reality series. In this series, the bakers must showcase their baking skills and creativity, as they are tasked with challenges that not only test their technical proficiency, but also their ability to execute under pressure, while under the watchful eyes of the judges: FOOD NETWORK STAR winner Jason Smith and Food Network's Marcela Valladolid. In each one-hour episode, the competitors compete in two rounds, including a Skills Challenge that tests their mastery of the essential technical skills of baking, followed by a Master Challenge that tests their prowess in working with specific flavors and ingredients to create the most authentic and delicious versions of classic baked delights. In the end, the judges help determine which baker moves one step closer to winning $25,000 and earning the title of Best Baker in America! The bakers competing for the title of Best Baker in America are: Brittani Brooker (Charlotte, NC - Executive Pastry Chef); Andy Chlebana (Plainfield, IL - Pastry Chef & Culinary Professor); Dwayne Ingraham (Oxford, MS - Professional Chef); Margarita Kallas-Lee (Los Angeles, CA - Pastry Chef); Adalberto Diaz Labrada (Salt Lake City, UT - Executive Pastry Chef); Susan Mijeres (San Antonio, TX - Pastry Chef); Thiago Silva (Boston, MA - Culinary Director); Cheryl Storms (San Diego, CA - Pastry Chef Consultant).
On Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered the season finale of BEST BAKER IN AMERICA, immediately following a five-hour marathon (5-10pm) of encore episodes. In the season ender, "Chocolate," the pressure is on as the final three bakers -- Andy Chlebana, Dwayne Ingraham & Thiago Silva -- take on the most revered and beloved of all baking ingredients: chocolate. In the Skills Challenge, the bakers must make a perfect version of the ever-temperamental chocolate souffle. For the final Master Challenge, the bakers must create the ultimate chocolate cake -- a truly spectacular, elaborately-decorated cake, using some type of liquor as the required featured flavor. In the end, host Adam Rapoport and judges Jason Smith and Marcela Valladolid will declare one baker the Best Baker in America and award them a $25,000 prize!
