The French TV show “Qui sera le prochain grand pâtissier” is a competition for the best professional pastry chef in France. It exists for years by now and when I started watching it in 2014 one episode on a Tuesday evening at prime time lasted full 4 hours.
The challenges the contestants were faced varied from developing pastries according to a defined theme, assisting some of the best pastry chefs of France during service to preparing an immense buffet of pastries with their own creations.
In one of the challenges they were asked to develop a new version of a Traditional chocolate entremet from Lenôtre. Grégory Quéré, one of the contestants who turned out to also be the winner of this season, made a chocolate mousse that made a big impression on the jury.
Curious about the result, I prepared this chocolate mousse and I still remember it 5 years later. The best chocolate mousse I ever had.
