THE BEST PASTRY. A new candidate was eliminated this Wednesday, October 19? And who was Thierry Marx's crush? Answers.
[Updated October 19, 2022 at 11:19 p.m.] The noose tightens in The Best Pastry Chef . This week, unfortunately Alicia who was eliminated, after having chained a flop and a disappointment during the creative test. Sebastian was also close to exit, but got the crush of Thierry Marx , which allowed him to stay in the competition. Finally, Nils picked up the blue apron. Here is the summary of the episode.
For this seventh week, amateur pastry chefs met on the theme of “Fear in the tent”. Cyril first asked the candidates to revisit lightning with clear instructions. “I want to find a good choux pastry, a silky cream and a scary decor. Scare us with the visuals and impress us with the flavors,” the chef asked. Nils wowed the jury with his eclair in the shape of a gooseberry centipede, just like Cléo and her little butternut ghosts. 'It's super good and yet it was not won in advance', admitted Cyril Lignac . Manon also made a nice comeback compared to the previous week with her XXL éclair in the shape of a cemetery, coffee and dulcey flavor. Justine, but also Alicia and Sébastien suffered a flop, with achievements that were too messy and difficult to read.
Also, Mercotte regained control of his technical test asking candidates to complete a 'Aracnicake', a soft chocolate and vanilla whipped cream cake, containing a compote of cherries with spider eggs in molecular spheres, covered with a marshmallow cloth. The event gave the candidates a hard time, in particular Sébastien, Cléo and Najoua, who came last in the standings, just behind Alicia. Vanessa, Manon and Nils form the leading trio.
Finally, the guest of the week Thierry Marx asked amateur bakers to reproduce their greatest fears in a cake. Adelina wowed the jury with her larger than life giant cockroach, made up of a chocolate molly cake, a pear compote and a speculoos crisp. Nils also amazed Cyril, Mercotte and Thierry Marx with his “horror film” cake with black forest flavors, as did Justine with her chocolate-coffee rat, for which Thierry Marx even asked for the recipe. However, the chef attributed his favorite to Sébastien, who impressed everyone with his “buried alive” cake with realistic visuals. 'We recognize your artistic soul', let go of Mercotte. Alicia, who unfortunately missed his vanilla mango and Espelette pepper cake, was finally eliminated.
Alicia was eliminated from the Best Pastry Chef during the show 'Peur sous la tent', broadcast this Wednesday, October 19. Discover the identity of the candidates who have already left the competition:
