BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A graduate from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester will be a contestant on Martha Stewart's new baking show, which premiers this week.
"Bakeaway Camp" will feature six talented amateur bakers who go into the great outdoors to bake under "Camp Director" Martha Stewart. There are also a couple of baking experts on hand, Carla Hall and Dan Langan, who double as "Camp Counselors."
32-year-old Catherine Foley, a native of Stoughton, told The Telegram even though it's a baking show, filming was a "full camping experience," complete with "the sun, the heat, the yellow jackets - which was a huge issue."
According to the Food Network, the series will be "equal parts baking boot-camp and camp-inspired games and challenges. The baker that displays the least amount of progress at the end of each episode will pack their bags and head home, with the last camper standing winning a kitchen filled with appliances worth $25,000."
Foley told The Telegram that the first time the contestants met Stewart in person, she made quite an entrance. “We were all very excited and surprised to see her riding on her horse," said Foley. "It was a fun surprise."
The show was filmed in upstate New York last September and October. Foley said unlike "The Great British Baking Show," Martha Stewart's bakers are not working under a tent. They're baking outside in the elements, which makes it that much more of a challenge.
"Bakeaway Camp" premiers on the Food Network on Monday, May 11th at 9 p.m.
