Pennyhill Park Team in Bake Off: The Professionals
We're delighted to share that our amazing Head Pastry Chef's Sarah Frankland and Leyre Pedrazuela Otero, are competing in the Pennyhill Park team for the brand new Bake Off: The Professionals on Channel 4.
Sarah and Leyre will be competing in Heat 2 of the new series which starts at 8pm on Tuesday 30th April 2019.
Sarah is the Head Pastry Chef at Pennyhill Park, an Exclusive Hotel & Spa in Surrey. She leads a team of 10 pastry chefs in the hotel's kitchens and was formerly the Head Pastry Chef at Yauatcha. She first met Leyre when she interviewed her for a position there and upon leaving Yauatcha to join Pennyhill Park, Sarah offered Leyre a job there instead. Sarah has been involved in competitions before, coming second in the Chocolate Masters in 2017 and also winning the Movenpick Gourmet Dessert Chef of the year award in 2012. After working under Sarah at Pennyhill, Leyre left to become Head Pastry Chef at South Lodge, an Exclusive Hotel & Spa. Previously, she worked at high end Spanish patisseries Mama Frambois in Madrid and Escriba in Barcelona. They are great friends and believe they have complementing styles, as well as matching tattoos!
