Five episodes aired from tomorrow, every Saturday, at 7.15 pm on TV8
The spotlight is on “Maître Chocolatier Talenti in Sfida”, the first Italian talent show for aspiring Maîtres Chocolatiers, produced by Banijay Italia, premiered on TV8, from tomorrow, November 20, every Saturday, for five episodes, at 7.15 pm . Ten professionals, leading experts in the art of chocolate, challenge each other to the last praline to join the team of Lindt Italia’s Maître Chocolatiers.
Conducted by the starred chef Giorgio Locatelli, judge of MasterChef Italia, who follows the aspiring Maîtres Chocolatiers on their journey, revealing their stories and dreams. At his side a jury of excellence, authoritative and with a long experience in the world of chocolate: the Maître Chocolatier Lindt Nico Tomaselli, the pastry chef Melissa Forti, refined and dark like a dark bar, and in every episode an exceptional guest at surprise, coming from the entertainment world.
A unique and refined location welcomes the jury and the competitors, who can freely express their art and creativity in this space. Symbol of competition, object of scene and work, the traditional melting pot, from which rivers of milk, dark and white chocolate, intoxicate the studio theater of contention with a sweet scent.
In each episode two challenges are staged, two occasions to show one’s talent to the judges and make the spectators dream at home, showing the thousand facets and shades of chocolate, revealing the secrets of a raw material and an art as noble as the processing of chocolate. The first test, the Creation Test, is useful for competitors to show their artistic sensitivity and the ability to realize their inspiration.
The second test, the Expertise Test, on the other hand, stimulates competitors to demonstrate their technical skills to reproduce the essential and characteristic trait of Lindt’s iconic products, such as Lindor or Orsetto, faithfully recreating it or presenting a personal variation. In each episode two competitors are eliminated, in a crescendo of intensity and gluttony, because only the best will join the team of Lindt Italia’s Maîtres Chocolatiers, wearing the iconic hat.
