Amanda Miller On School Of Chocolate
The brand new baking show, School of Chocolate was all about the eight pros including Amanda Miller who studied the art of chocolate under the tutelage of a famed chocolatier, Amaury Guichon. Throughout eight episodes, they learned tricks and skills that not only elevated their knowledge of pastry but also gave them a life-changing experience.
But since this is a competition, only one will be named “Best in Class” and receive a $50,000 cash prize. Also, they’ll go on to each an international master class at Chef Amaury Guichon’s pastry academy in Las Vegas.
Amanda was first contacted about the show through her social media and selected after a few Zoom interviews. She was also asked to submit a video displaying “what (she) can do to show her abilities.”
Recalling her time on the show, Amanda mentioned that some of the pastry and chocolate challenges pushed her to her creative limits. “Previously, I was only thinking about them with a one-track mind and staying in my zone.

Win or lose, Amanda only cared about gaining that “invaluable experience.” She planed to those learned lessons to her students shortly.
