The search to find the greatest holiday baker begins as eight bakers enter the Holiday Kitchen where they show off their family traditions and superb baking skills. In order to survive the challenges week-to-week, they must prove their abilities in front of our tough-love judges: Duff Goldman, Nancy Fuller and Lorraine Pascale. Hosted by Bobby Deen, this baking championship is the sweetest way to celebrate this holiday season.
