It started with good intention, however. During the final of Top chef, broadcast on Wednesday June 17 on M6, finalist Adrien Cachot proposed a very special dessert. Paul Pairet's little foal came up with the idea of a plastic cup-shaped trompe-l'oeil, echoing the disastrous impact of plastic overconsumption on the environment. Far from his usual hobby around the potato, the chef of the red brigade tried to defend his project against Philippe Etchebest and Paul Pairet rather … perplexed. Indeed, while the candidate was promoting his dessert called "Chocology, a mix between chocolate and ecology", the two jurors suddenly laughed: "What is that? A crushed plastic cup? We're not going to make them eat plastic anyway!", launched the show's new juror.
Adrien's dessert inspired "Top Chef" fans
On social networks, Adrien Cachot's dessert has awakened the creative spirit of certain internet users. Only a few seconds after the presentation of the trompe-l'oeil dessert, the ecological metaphor was quickly swept away to make room for the joke. "Adrien's menu this evening (starter) barbecue crisps with white sauce, (main dish) breaded raw veal head with fries, (dessert) kiwi strawberry kebab with ketchup coulis", "Adrien's next dessert, st honored at Brussels sprouts "," Adrien kills me every time, his dessert is a plastic cup! ", can we read, among other things, on Twitter.
However, Adrien had a very precise idea of his dessert. Questioned by the cameras of Top chef on the meaning of this plastic cup, the finalist had confided that he had this idea in the company of his spouse: "I started making two balls to make this goblet. It was me who made them with my partner and I thought it was a nice nod to the period in which we live." For Philippe Etchebest, once the laughter is over, no doubt, this dessert is to be marked with a white stone : "In memory of the history of Top Chef, this is the first time that I have seen such a committed dessert."
