THE BEST PASTRY. The identity of the four semi-finalists for Best Pastry Chef is now known. Find out who it is and who was eliminated this Wednesday.
[Updated Nov 23, 2022 11:22 p.m.] Yes Manon won the blue apron for the fifth time - a record in the history of the Best Pastry Chef - Cléo was unfortunately eliminated this Wednesday, November 23. 'You have always kept the course of audacity. You can be proud of yourself', encouraged her all the same Cyril Lignac . Back to the quarter-finals.
For the cyril's challenge , the five candidates still in the running had to revisit the famous Churros with chocolate of Madrid into a refined dessert. Manon particularly seduced Cyril and Mercotte with its lightning-shaped churros, with flavors of pear and tonka bean. 'It's very colorful, it's really crispy ... We travel it's very good', they assured. Benjamin, who is progressing from week to week, also convinced the jury with its churros in the form of passion fruit gel tart and dark chocolate ganache. In contrast, Cléo and Adelina disappointed Cyril and Mercotte . Both presented undercooked churros, making the tasting unpleasant.
pour la terrible Mercotte technical test, amateur pastry cooks had to make a cake inspired by the design of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, with a nougatine structure , of the candy transparent stained glass allowing light to filter through, all enclosing a turron cake (kind of Spanish nougat). Manon came first for the fifth time , just ahead of Benjamin, followed by Nils and Cléo. Adelina, who had never made nougatine in her life, unfortunately came in last.
For the creative test, candidates had to reproduce a symbol of Spain in the form of a cake . Joakim Prat, who served for a long time at Barcelona, was the guest chef to judge the candidates alongside Cyril and Mercotte. He credited his hit to Adelina, allowing her to avoid elimination. The young woman amazed everyone with her lemon, mandarin and nougat creamy guitar, with a realistic look and perfectly balanced taste. Manon was once again unanimously acclaimed with her cinnamon, orange and lemon flavored flamenco flower. The young woman has once again won the blue apron and Cleo was eliminated.
Cleo was eliminated this Wednesday, November 23 at the gates of the semi-final. Discover the candidates who left the competition over the weeks:
