Martin Sorge is a home baker, recipe developer, and food writer based in Chicago. Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith named Martin the winner of the most recent season of the Great American Baking Show, which is available to stream on The Roku Channel. Martin has loved baking since he set the microwave on fire making a “biscuit” as a wee youngster. Luckily, he’s learned a lot since then. As a self-trained baker, Martin was taught by dozens of blogs, a vast cookbook collection, the local public library, and the people around him. Originally from Indiana, Martin grew up in a loving family, surrounded by cornfields, Amish farms, and a distant relative’s apple orchard. As a Hoosier now based in Chicago, his baking combines Great Lakes roots, multicultural urban home, and goofy, think-outside-the-box attitude. Although he’s a huge nerd about food and baking, he doesn’t take things too seriously.
