Think you’ve got what it takes to please Cherish Finden and Benoit Blin? Then Channel 4 wants to hear from you.

It is looking for the next raft of contestants from the nation’s pastry chefs, chocolatiers and pâtissiers to take part in the fourth series of Bake Off: The Professionals, which will air next year.

The teams must consist of one team captain and an assistant pastry chef. The captain must be of a senior/head pastry chef level, while the assistant can be working at any other level such as sous chef or chef de partie.

“Are you a highly skilled and creative pastry chef? Are you passionate about creating the best desserts, cakes and pastries in Britain? Bake Off: The Professionals follows the elite from the world of professional pastry as they compete to become Britain’s best pastry chefs,” the advert stated.

“We are looking for teams of two to take part. Whether you’re from a five-star hotel or a high-end patisserie supplier – we want to hear from you.”

The deadline for applications is midnight on Monday 27 August and interested parties can apply via this website.

This year’s series, which recently wrapped up, saw pastry chefs Emmanuel Bonneau and Sam Leatherby from London Hilton on Park Lane crowned the champions. They fought off teams from the likes of the Savoy, Silverstone and Hotel Café Royal.
