Episode 8: Bake Off: The Professionals

Summary

The patisserie chefs face the quarter-final, and for their first challenge they serve up 24 Black Forest gateaux and 24 mini roulades. For the showpiece, the teams go back to the 1970s as they construct a disco-inspired showpiece, using a combination of sugar and chocolate, and incorporating desserts. Presented by Tom Allen and Liam Charles

Review

Considering how much pressure the teams are under, there’s a very relaxed – at times almost giggly – atmosphere in the kitchen. Not even the frivolous interruptions from Tom Allen and Liam Charles, who buzz around like annoying flies at a picnic, seem to stress them out.

“Boom!” roars Benoit Blin when he sees one pair’s miniature version of those 70s classics, black forest gateaux and roulade; he’s not so enthusiastic about others.

Then it’s on to a disco showpiece. With mirror balls, chocolate guitars and multi-coloured dance floors, they look so boogie-tastic I half expected John Travolta to jump out of one of them.
