US bakers not as good, says Paul Hollywood

Thursday May 16, 2013

Paul Hollywood has said the standard of bakers in his new US show is lower than in the UK.

Baking expert and judge of BBC's The Great British Bake Off Paul doesn't rate American bakers in comparison to British ones but believes they will improve, says Digital Spy.

Paul, who has been working on CBS series The American Baking Competition, said: "The standard was lower in America, but that's because it's their first season.

It equated to the first series of the British one, but it will get better."

Paul also admitted to being slightly shocked by some of the flavour combinations the US bakers went for.

He said: "I was surprised at some of the flavours they put in. One did a chocolate and bacon quiche and actually I liked it, and that really wound me up!"
