"We'll see one of two things happen: contestants will master what's trendy right now or they'll set a new trend."
In the words of Jerome LandrieuCacao Barry Chef
“This competition is for the next generation of talented chefs. It sets the trends, and offers a platform for new techniques and flavours. It gives contestants the opportunity to push themselves out of their comfort zone and evolve in skill and technique.”
“With the new competition theme, it is difficult to set an expectation, because it offers endless possibilities. I think we will see one of two things happen: contestants will master what's trendy right now or they'll set a new trend.”
“My advice for the contestants would be to read and understand the rules carefully, because it’s easy to assume that something is expected, when in reality it isn't. Also, when you start something and convince yourself it’s the best, make sure it truly is. Have a coach that’s really involved when you’re training, a person that knows what it takes to prepare for this type of competition.”
