The fourth season of Best Baker in America, hosted by Carla Hall, premieres on May 3rd on the Food Network. Two local bakers will compete to win $ 25,000 plus bragging rights. Miranda Prince, Executive Pastry at Hexx Kitchen + Bar, and Katrina Tayo, Executive Pastry Chef at Sushi
Samba went to Tucson, Arizona to compete with eight other bakers and create their own versions of classic American desserts.
Although Prince and Tayo were unable to reveal any details from the show, which spans seven episodes, they both agree that the experience was unforgettable. “I don’t know I’d do another because I’m not a competitive person. It was more of a growth experience for me,” says Prince. “I was trying to test my limits, get out of my comfort zone and experience something that I knew I wouldn’t be entirely comfortable with.”
Tayo says she was nervous about entering the competition, but also saw it as a great opportunity. For them, the best thing was to meet the other participants and make new friends in the industry. “It is difficult to find good cooks – and good people in general – whom you can confide in or even consult with recipes. All the competitors, all the cooks, they are all so nice that I think that was a winner for me, ”she says.
While enjoying the episodes on TV, you can get to know these talented chefs in real life at their Las Vegas restaurants. Prince likes mousse-based desserts, the first things she learned in cooking school, while Tayo loves creating something with chocolate from around the world.
