Le Prochain Grand Patissier is a French reality competition show with a star studded jury composed of renowned chefs Christophe Michalak, Christophe Adam, Philippe Urraca and Pierre Marcolini. Ten contestants compete to become the next grand patissier français. The show’s first few episodes are available on Youtube and are a pleasure to watch. Even if you do not speak French, you will feel like you went on a mini Parisian vacation and ate the best pastries possible.
Francois Michalak is a star in the French culinary world. He became Plaza Athenee’s pasty chef in 2000 and has since moved on to become a succesful cookbook author and tv personality. Michalak Master Class, a pastry school, opened in 2013.
