The next pastry competition Chocolate School is a Netflix original series that will leave you in awe of the pastry creations and chocolate centerpieces featured throughout its first season.
As the title of the show makes clear, an essential part of this series is that it is also a learning environment for its participants. Over the course of eight episodes, they will learn tricks of the trade that will elevate not only their pastry and chocolate knowledge, but their skills as well.
They will be instructed by Amaury Guichon, a world-class chocolatier who uses sweet confectionery to create stunning realistic art from a lighthouse to a candelabra with a surprise hidden inside.
Under his guidance, each candidate will participate in challenges that extend their imagination and understanding of what they are capable of creating using chocolate as a medium.
At the end of Chocolate School, one of the eight chefs will be named “Best in Class” and receive $ 50,000 to start his own small business and move on to the next step in his career. They will also give an international master class at Chef Guichon’s pastry academy in Las Vegas.
Here is more information on the series which will premiere on Friday, November 26!
