Chigs Parmar On Great British Bake Off
As reported and shared widely, with his job at a halt because of COVID-19, Chigs decided to make good use of his time to pursue baking as a new hobby. He started baking at the beginning of lockdown in 2020. Initially, he started with a sourdough.
A self-taught baker, Chigs learned all of his craft from watching online videos to learn intricate baking techniques and chocolate work. Still, he is a natural at what he does best. Who would’ve thought that what started as a leisure time hobby, would pave a way for Chigs as a reality star in Great British Bake Off?
But, it happened for Chirag. In an interview with LeicestershireLive, Chigs shared, “No I never believed I would actually make it on the show but was over the moon to have been selected as a contestant – the hard part was keeping it secret given how excited I was to be on the show.”
He would be competing against the other 11 contestants. Others who will be joining him are Amanda, 56-year-old detective, from London; Crystelle, 26, a client relationship manager from London; Freya, a 19-year-old psychology student from Scarborough; George, 34, from London; Giuseppe, 45-year-old chief engineer from Bristol; Jairzeno, 51-year-old finance head from London; Jurgen who hailed from the Black Forest, Germany, Lizzie, 28-year-old car production operative from Liverpool; Maggie, a 70-year-old retired nurse from Dorset; Rochica, a 27-year-old junior HR business partner from Birmingham; and Tom, 28-year-old developer, from Kent.
With his attention to detail and organizational skills, Chigs believe that it would prove triumphant for his win.
Fun Fact: If Chigs could ever make a selfie biscuit, he would make of him with the Taj Mahal in the background.
