To be quite honest you should give any cooking show at least a try. With the Spring Baking Championship though you should give it the benefit of the doubt at first and then stick around to see what these people can do. The $50,000 prize is enough to get each and every one of them to put forth their best ideas and recipes so that they can wow the judges, but only one of them is going to win it all. As a result the competition usually becomes something unique and fun to watch as you notice how the different bakers utilize their space, their ingredients, and their skills to make sure that they’re the ones still standing at the end.
Baking in spring is a great deal different than it is in the winter or fall since the treats are bound to be lighter, more colorful, and laced with a much heavier helping of fruity and aromatic flavors than you might find in any other season. After all during springtime it’s customary to see dishes of all types that are more fresh, vibrant, and reflect the season with their lively tastes and colors that are meant to dazzle the eye. Bakers tend to have a lighter hand at this time of year with their many different recipes as springtime is seen as the transition into warmer weather and brighter days that mean new beginnings and a renewed vigor to the world after the winter has passed. In this manner it’s more likely to see bakers take on a much different approach to their craft since fresh fruits can’t exactly take the heavy-handed methods that are used in other desserts and treats that are customary for the colder months.
Just as you would with any other cooking show this championship is something to watch in order to be entertained and to possibly get ideas so as to create something similar if not exactly alike in your own kitchen. The Food network is after all more than just an entertainment channel, it’s also a very useful tool to anyone that has the idea to bake something unique and wonderful in their own home. Who knows, it might even inspire more and more people to discover that they have an innate talent for cooking that just needed the right spark to get going. It’s also fun just to watch the bakers as they go about the process of making their different treats as well and figure out what they use and do in order to make treats that many people might already make on a regular basis.
Of course like any other show the entertainment aspect is great since people tend to pick their favorites to win and as a result will keep watching just to see who is let go with each round and who is barely hanging on to their spot in the challenge. It’s like a much shorter-lived version of Survivor almost but with baking. It’s fun to watch and very informative, not to mention the fact that it can be kind of addictive.
