Bake Off The Professionals Season 5 Episode 01 Description
Liam Charles and new-co-host Stacey Solomon present the return of the Channel 4 baking challenge with knobs on, as patisserie teams from establishments in Manchester, Cumbria, Wiltshire, Birmingham and London compete to be crowned the best in Britain. To kick things off, no-nonsense judges Benoit Blin and Cherish Finden set the pastry chefs a challenge to create 36 individual strawberry cakes and a chocolate sculpture, with no recipe to work from. For their showpiece, they are tasked to transform an ordinary treacle tart into a fine dining experience
Yet again the pre-title sequence features one fabulous showstopper after another crashing to the ground. Presenters Liam Charles and Stacey Solomon (taking over from Tom Allen) can only stare open-mouthed in horror.Before that though, the six teams of patissiers have a surprise challenge: to make 36 strawberry fraisier cakes and a chocolate amenity. That’s a small chocolate sculpture if, like me, you didn’t know. Then they must reinvent the treacle tart.
