The bakers dive head first into a world of carbs as they tackle three difficult challenges for Bread Week (Wednesday, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. on CBC-TV and cbc.ca/watch).

The judges sample, discuss, and declare the Star Baker, and announce the baker who must leave the tent.

There is the challenge of the technical bake, where each baker must perfect a classic.
