The Boudoir TVPUK
Adriano met Stacey in 2009. She wrote him a simple letter asking if she could make him a cake to distract her from the chemo she was going through. As soon as Adriano received the letter, he flew to Stacey’s home and spent two days cooking with her – it was the start of an enduring friendship.
This episode will follow Adriano every step of the way in the lead-up to Macaron Day; we’ll see him pump out close to 30,000 multi-coloured macarons in his new, graffiti-inspired kitchen called The Lab, and create prototype gold macarons from his home. And unbeknownst to Adriano, one of his staff – apprentice baker Araks – is creating a surprise Willy Wonka-inspired birthday cake, complete with a chocolate water-fountain. Yes, Macaron Day is also Adriano’s birthday.
Four times a year, Adriano releases a new range of desserts. This will involve the creation of six new desserts and a range of scrumptious chocolates and pastries. The days leading up to the launch will be long and stressful. Adriano will spend night after night experimenting with taste and texture: Has he got the flavour, right? Is the architecture solid? It’s a process of trial and error, and it all starts with one simple idea.
