Jack, the hip young head chef from a top London restaurant, with his ripped jeans and man-bun, is very confident of success in Crème de la Crème, the only remaining GBBO remnant on the BBC.
He sits with his team and reels off the names of celebrity customers (“David Beckham, Prince Harry, Joan Collins”) and how much work he and his staff do in the kitchen every night (“500 covers on a Saturday”). “The pressure’s not an issue,” Jack says confidently. Did I mention that before, how confident he is? Really, really confident. Which is nice.
At the start of a new series, with a new host, Angus Deayton, replacing Tom Kerridge, who never looked at ease in Crème de la Crème, pastry chefs Benoit Blin (hearing him say “squidgy” is a delight) and Cherish Finden want exquisite and edible millefeuilles, and peach melbas with a twist.
The pastry contest returns in a revamped knockout format, as five teams battle to stay in the competition and make it through to the next heat. First, they are challenged to make 36 identical Moka au Cafe slices and Napoleons in just three hours, before creating a showpiece dessert inspired by the classic Peach Melba. Hosted by Angus Deayton.
