Three more teams of expert patisserie bakers joins the competition to be crowned the creme de la creme of British pastry. It’s the final heat before the semi-finals of the tense Creme de la Creme Bake Off.
Creme de la Creme Episode 5 Info
The Contestants and Teams
Team 1: A trio of baking patisserie chefs from a fine-dining restaurant in Liverpool,
Team 2: A team from Leeds led by a self-taught chocolatier
Team 3: Three pastry chefs from south Wales who are representing their country in this year’s culinary Olympics.
The Miniature Challenge
The teams must cook against the clock and have just three hours to produce 36 dacquoise slices, 36 fruit tartlets and 36 petits gateaux in the shape of a cube. They need to make every batch identical in size and shape and avoid Cherish getting out her ruler. But will they impress Benoit and Claire with their innovative flavour profiles?
The Showpiece Challenge
The contestants are asked to reinvent a classic homemade dessert as a fine-dining experience. For this heat, chocolate cheesecake is transformed into three stunning showpiece displays. One team takes its inspiration from the ancient Aztecs while another travels back to ancient Greece. The third team opts to avoid a theme altogether, instead focusing on making the best possible cheesecake. Which tactic will pay off when the final scores are revealed?
