Bake Off The Professionals Season 5 Episode 09 Description
Stacey Solomon and Liam Charles present the semi-final, and in a first for the patisserie contest, the teams must create a plated dessert for each of the judges. With no recipe and just the ingredients and equipment before them, they draw on their experience to produce something that will hopefully stop Cherish Finden and Benoit Blin in their tracks. For the second challenge, they must create an edible table scene inspired by the land of the dinosaurs, with a large macaron cake at its heart.
The search for Britain’s best patisserie team returns. Liam Charles and new host Stacey Solomon welcome a fresh batch of pastry chefs. Twelve professional duos from across the U.K. go head to head in a series of competitive heats judged by celebrated pastry chefs Cherish Finden and Benoit Blin. In each episode the expert pairs are challenged to two rounds that will test their professional ability and allow them to showcase their creative flair. A new presenting line up of Tom Allen and Liam Charles will offer their own comedic take on events in the professional’s kitchen.

Bake Off The Professionals Show Summary
Bake Off: The Professionals (previously Bake Off: Crème de la Crème from 2016–2017) is a British television baking competition featuring teams of professional pastry chefs pit against one another through two different challenges. It is a spin-off from The Great British Bake Off, and its first episode was screened on BBC Two on 29 March 2016. The eight-episode first series of the programme was presented by Tom Kerridge, with Benoit Blin, Cherish Finden and Claire Clark serving as judges. The second series was presented by Angus Deayton, but Claire Clark did not return as a judge. The third series moved to Channel 4 to join The Great British Bake Off after the BBC declined to renew the series. The Channel 4 series has been renamed Bake Off: The Professionals, and is presented by comedian Tom Allen and former contestant on the main series, Liam Charles.
The first series was won by the Squires Kitchen Cookery School team led by Mark Tilling, followed by a team of military chefs led by Liam Grime, a team from London Hilton Park Lane with Emmanuel Bonneau, Thibault Marchand and Erica Sangiorgi from Kimpton Fitzroy London Hotel, and Laurian Veaudor and Thibault Courtoisier from Cocorico Patisserie.
