It’s arguably the most wholesome show on television. It’s full of charming contestants, and tasty challenges – oddly calming compared to American cooking TV. But if you’re left wondering what to watch watch after the Great British Baking Show- you’ve got a lot to choose from!
The Great British Bake Off or GBBO is called The Great British Baking Show for American audiences, due to a copyright held by Pillsbury. The show has been tremendously successful, and after a stint on PBS in America, you can now find new episodes on Netflix.
I find myself always wanting to watch more each week, and especially at the end of every season. That’s when I turn to a few of these other great shows like the Great British Baking Show! And the best part? You can stream them all from anywhere in the world!
#1. The Great British Baking Show: Masterclass
If you’ve watched earlier seasons of the great british baking show, you loved the dynamic between Judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood! So Why not learn from the masters themselves.
With this spin off series, you get step-by-step instructions on how to re-create their famous treats, and challenges featured in the famous tent!
