We’ll hear what the producers, judges, and contestants all have to say about one of the greatest culinary shows of all time.
Contestants Are Given Cooking Classes
While you have to have the culinary talent to get on the show, some contestants in the US were given classes during the competition. According to the Daily Mail, one runner-up revealed everything on their blog.
“[We were given] baking component classes including how to make pastry cream, sponge cake, cobbler, shortbread and pie crusts, etc. The entire show is not at all how it seems. Each home cook is given professional training before the challenges to ensure they can cook something decent when they start recording.” The claims caused quite the scandal, but let’s face it, Gordon Ramsay has been in the tabloids for far worse.
