Dessert Doyenne Kerry Vincent Answers the Call for Help on Save My Bakery
Stale bakeries are no more when Kerry Vincent comes in and works her expertise in Food Network's new series Save My Bakery, premiering March 19 8|7c. With years of professional experience to call upon, Kerry revives bakeries' selections of sweets as well as their sliding sales. Kerry's mission is to reinvigorate local bakeries and put them back on the neighborhood radar. At the same time, she mends strained relationships that often are at the center of these failing businesses. As a master sugar artist and cake designer, and an inductee in the International Cake Exploration Societé Hall of Fame and the Dessert Professional Hall of Fame, there's no better person for the job. Food Network fans may also remember Kerry from Food Network Challenge, where she served as head judge.
In the first episode, Kerry visits Viking Pastries in Ardmore, Pa. The bakery used to be the neighborhood hot spot, but over the years it has lost its business and is now on the verge of closing. Both the shop and its recipes have lost their appeal to customers. If the owners want their business to succeed, they'll have to attract a younger clientele. With the help of a contractor, Kerry will guide the shop through a complete remodel, and she will reimagine the baked goods, all in hopes of breathing new life into the bakery.
