Yuzu, Coconut and Black Sesame Slices
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Crystelle: "It's got coconut and black sesame dacquoise, a yuzu curd, black sesame almond jaconde, and then a white chocolate and coconut tully meringue buttercream. And those layers are repeated again. Then I've got a layer of white chocolate ganache, and then pipe with some whipped cream. They're very simple. Very, very simple. "

Voice-Over; "Crystelle's going way beyond the three layers demanded by the brief. She'll use sesame to flavor not just her four layers of sponge, but a caramel brittle that sits at the end of pipe chantilly cream, designed to help balance the sharp Yuzu curd."

Paul Hollywood: "The yuzu is such a beautiful flavor, but then you're left with the sesame and that gorgeous texture of the creams and the sponges going through the dish". (Handshake) 

"That handshake is absolutely deserved, because it's very striking. It's absolutely delicious. It's a little bit of genius. I've never had anything like that before. Well done."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
