  The Best Pastry Chef: Who was eliminated?

[Updated September 21, 11:38 p.m.] A week after the Franklin elimination , the candidates of Best Pastry Chef gathered for a new evening on the theme of 1001 nights.

During the first test, Cyril asked candidates to revisiting the traditional gazelle horn . At the end of the two hours of testing, Cyril and Mercotte had a real love for the creation of Cléo , who imagined a macaron with ganache whipped with orange blossom. 'It's beautiful, delicate... In short, exceptional and super good,' they said. Manon , who proposed an elegant pistachio gazelle horn also convinced the jury, as did Alicia with its kadaif, pine nut praline and orange blossom ganache. 'It's very very good and it's crunchy' enthused Cyril. Justine, Karel and Hervé, on the other hand, flopped by offering irrelevant pastries, too far removed from the original gazelle horn.

For his star technical proof, Mercotte asked the candidates to make a tower of the palace of Scheherazade. Marie Portolano gave the participants 2h30, 30 minutes more than usual, to prepare this very difficult cake consisting of a gold-powdered chocolate dome, placed on a cake 35 centimeters high. Hervé and Justine, who had already failed in the first event, finished last and penultimate of the technical test at Mercotte and already seemed to be in bad shape for the rest of the competition. Benjamin and Adelina came 3rd and 2nd respectively in the race, ahead of Manon. 'She is this little one,' commented Mercotte.

For the last event, Cyril and Mercotte were accompanied by Nina Metayer . Candidates were then required to present their dearest wish in the form of a cake . 'I want to know directly what it is, both in terms of visuals and flavors,' warned the pastry chef. Nina Métayer named Adelina as her favorite of the week. The young woman, who had already won the favor of Desty Brami last week, seduced the chef with her wish to stop time consisting of a chocolate biscuit, cabbage and whipped ganache. 'I really enjoyed it. It was balanced in terms of taste, editing and finishing, well done.' “You are progressing week by week,” added Cyril Lignac . Manon once again dazzled the jury with her cake representing the dream of talking to dogs with a base of puff pastry, date caramel and creamy honey. Finally, the young woman has kept his blue apron, wheras' Hervé was eliminated.
