CROQUEMBOUCHE (Profiterole Tower) Recipe Relay Challenge!! | Pass It On S2 E8

DIY 和生活百科

Let’s whip up a show-stopping croquembouche in 50 minutes... said no one, EVER! In this episode, we’ve taken the ‘pass it on’ game to a new, relentless level and challenged the boys to produce a croquembouche, a French dessert consisting of choux pastry puffs piled into a cone and bound with threads of caramel. What could possibly go wrong?
*This episode was filmed before lockdown*
We used the Crispy Cream Puffs recipe from our Deserts in Duvets book, if you want to look at more recipes from Desserts in Duvets, you can find ‘em all on the Sorted Club: Books app. Find out more here: ​

    This is like wrestling. They deliberately make artifical stupid mistakes because after so many episodes, it this was real, they would have developed a way of communicating key things. Like what to do and how to manage things. Someone's phone is lying on the desk? Oh, lets put it away because of course it must be there by accident. Definitely it cannot be running a timer because this would be too handy in cooking, wouldn't it.

    I'm sorry, I will never get over how funny the panic about choux pastry was in this episode. You looked it up, follow the goddamn recipe, any good recipe should give you guidance. Seriously, I made choux pastry every work day, five days a week, for a year and a half with no problems. And trained people to do it. As long as you bake it properly, it is NOT THAT HARD. But the chaos was very amusing for a dark time in the world, so still...many thanks. (I absolutely love Pass It On, and let's be honest, just like with the Try Guys Without A Recipe series, I am here for the insanity.)

    Barry Taylor Syndrome: Barry has recovered, amazingly.. But not before passing it on to Jamie. I think 8s or 9s across the board for everyone is more than fair, especially Mike for pulling off the choux and putting a nozzle in the bag. Jamie, you get a 4, you made caramel, sort of.

    The only thing I can't get over is the grading system in the UK. 84% is an A? That's a solid B in the states. 80-83 Is usually a B- and to get an A- you have to score a 90 unless you have a nice school/teacher who rounds 88/89s to 90s. I have watched this video no less than 5 times (SORTED is always on in the background :) and I always have to stop and have a think when I here the grading system).

    You guys are really unfair to Jamie at times. Consider the Baking challenge: Jamie is last, trying to assemble the cake, and Janice keeps calling him out for not checking the fridge. Fast forward to this challenge. Joe uses the fridge to cool the cream, as instructed in the recipe, and the guys laugh at him for sticking something in the fridge. How the hell is he supposed to succeed when you all expect him to screw up?
