Auto Shows Top Chef 2021: our 5 five darling candidates for season 12
Biontech boss Uğur Şahin is hoping for vaccine approval in the USA in December
The corona vaccine from the Mainz company Biontech and the US partner Pfizer has now reached two decisive milestones. Biontech reported to on Wednesday that the vaccine was effective in 95 percent of the subjects - regardless of the age or gender of the study participants. The vaccine also meets all the safety requirements of the US regulatory authorities. That makes Ugur Sahin confident that the US authorities will approve the vaccine called BNT162b2 in December.
This is it - well, one would like to add - the new season of Top Chef has indeed started! After months spent confined, stressed, slowed down, watching the days go by with eyebrows, finding the darling Top Chef jury and the high-flying tests of the famous M6 culinary competition is the best boost of this month of February, again more graying than usual. And who says first episode, says meeting with the new candidates.
We don't know if it's us who have changed - we change all the time, we know it, no offense to Céline - with this year completely out of the ordinary, but this season, it's very simple, all the candidates have their particularity. Whether or not they were selected in the first round, none lost their means, or were overwhelmed by their preparations. It may be a detail for them, but for us it means a lot! Also, not one cried at the sight of the jury. At this level, we no longer thank them, we bless them! But let’s tear down, some candidates have already caught our eye, and we can't resist the urge to tell you more. Be careful, spoiler alert if you missed last night's show.

Chloe Charles, the cool
Matthias Marc, remember, we had already introduced her to you, and we had already noticed her activism on the plate. So what a pleasure to find her on the show, to defend her cuisine where generosity and taste are always present. Working the products from A to Z, this is the credo of the chef. And as she herself points out: "It’s not me who am eco-responsible, it is others who are not responsible! And not to spoil anything, we love its cool, no-brainer side that always feels good in the midst of the show's ambient cathodic stress.
prodigy Matthias Marc doesn't even have to win Top Chef to be noticed in the middle. Guide Lebey, Gault & Millau, Atabula, Le Figaro, Vanity Fair, all have won some awards over the years in one way or another. But if the chef blew us away, it was mainly by his approach. His idea of breaking down the "taste" of yellow wine, and transcribing it through notes of apples, nuts and spices, is in every way what one expects from a Top Chef candidate. Let him "think" about the cooking. Without necessarily intellectualizing it unnecessarily, let it go against what is being done to offer another angle. And even if his brigade leader Philippe Etchebest made it clear to him that he was on the verge of the last chance - a good start! - we have a feeling that this candidate will produce very beautiful dishes in Top Chef.
UK Celebrity Chef Is Selling Famous Harley
The rumored reason is the real kicker… Celebrities sell vehicles and buy new ones all the time for a variety of reasons. When you have a garage full of toys, perhaps you get bored with the ones you own and want to spice things up a little bit. Or you feel like the cars and motorcycles you’ve had don’t really convey how successful you are now. We don’t really get it since we’re not rich celebrities, so we’re just throwing out possibilities. However, there seems to be a more bizarre and complicated reason for UK celebrity chef Paul Hollywood selling off some Harley-Davidsons on eBay.
Mathieu Vande Velde, the
anti-conformist Beyond his striking resemblance to Gordon Ramsay, Mathieu Vande Velde, at the height of his 22 years, caught our eye with his way of cooking. Funny detail for a cook: he does not use salt. Fadasse his cuisine will you answer? Nay, the chef uses only natural salts, creating reductions, or using "alternative" salts like anchovy. It is both very simple and smart, and above all this culinary identity surprises due to the young age of the candidate!Bruno Aubin, the humble
From the start, all we can see is that, chef Bruno Aubin is anything but extrovert. Having the courage to show off on screen through a program watched by millions of people is already a challenge in itself. But the chef above all amazed us with his recipe, which the jury said was insufficiently accomplished, but which reveals potential and creativity. His idea ? Rethink the classic ham and butter by changing the textures, and working the bread in six different ways, just that!

Pierre Chomet, the traveler
Pierre Chomet has traveled a lot and worked in different countries and is now an expatriate in Bangkok. His cuisine is therefore affected, even if the basis remains classic French cuisine. To qualify, Pierre reversed the textures of the pad thai. The sticky rice noodles are replaced by langoustine tartare; the rice is worked into a crunchy tile; crispy peanuts are made into a mixed condiment, just like tamarind; and the langoustines emulsify! We are far and close at the same time to classic Pad Thai, and this approach greatly pleased the jury, and especially Paul Pairet, who integrated the candidate into his team.
But not all the candidates have been selected yet, and the second selection round, broadcast next Wednesday, will finally tell us who joins Top Chef's kitchens.
Top chef, Wednesday evening on M6 from 9:05 p.m.
Volvo boss holds little of hydrogen and wants to build e-cars from 2030 .
