I have really enjoyed what they've done to the show. I think Sandi and Noel are great hosts, and Prue Leith is a brilliant judge. It's also got some whimsical and slightly weird jokes, which adds a great humour.I knew Sandi Toksvig from listening to BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz which she hosted for years, and Noel Fielding I recognized from the BritCom "The IT Show". But, I think the contestant bakers are all the real stars so I hope we continue to get to watch it all here. BTW UnicornHaze, if you have Netflix, and haven't seen the Masterclass episodes, where Paul and Mary made their own versions of the technical challenge recipes, it's on Netflix and worth seeing. There are holiday bakes, too.
Hands down Masterchef Professional UK. I love Monica Galetti and Marcus Wareing. They embody professionalism and seem like genuinely nice people. For a reality show cooking competition, it’s incredibly classy and manages to maintain tension without succumbing to vulgarity or manufactured drama. While I can never hope to cook or bake even a fraction as well as the contestants, I feel like I learn a lot. Especially during the Skills Test portion of the show which is definitely hilarious and compelling.What is your favorite cooking/baking show?

Have you ever seen the Youtube Channel "Cooking with Dog"?I don’t own a television. So I’m limited to online videos. For some reason I’m drawn to foreign language baking videos, mainly French and Japanese. Can’t understand a word of it. But I like watching the process of pastry making. The French make everything complicated. The Japanese, who are in awe of French patisserie, then take the classic methods and simplify them. Where a French baker will spend forever on the nuances of macaronage, the Japanese will insist you just need to knock the air out of the batter and pipe it.
