Read on to find out the 2021 judges and an inside scoop on this series.
Who are the judges on Bake Off: The Professionals?
The judges for series four of Bake Off: The Professionals have in fact stayed the same. Cherish Finden and Benoit Blin are returning to our screens along with hosts, comedian Tom Allen and former GBBO contestant Liam Charles
Cherish Finden and Benoit Blin: before The Bakeoff
Before becoming a judge on Bake Off: The Professionals Cherish Finden was known for her work as a multi-award-winning Executive Pastry Chef at The Langham, London. With over 20 years of international relevant experience, it’s no wonder the show had Cherish under their radar!
On the other hand, Benoit Blin had had experience as a Chef Patissier at Oxfordshire’s Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. He had led a team of 13 pastry chefs with his overwhelming expertise of fresh bread, pastries, and other desserts.
