Attention food lovers! Netflix dropped its yummiest series ever School of Chocolate on November 26, 2021, and the casts are bursting with talent. But one contestant, Cedrick Simpson has specifically caught our eye, who has remarkably lost his weight and could potentially be gay.
So, what’s his story? Keep reading his Cedrick Simpson Bio to find out.
Cedrick Simpson On School Of Chocolate
Netflix’s School of Chocolate was all about the eight pros including Cedrick Simpson 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 and chocolate 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 to start their own small business. Also, they’ll go on to each an international master class at Chef Amaury Guichon’s pastry academy in Las Vegas.
According to Cedrick, the toughest thing for him on the show was to break from his style to a completely new perspective.“Thinking outside of the box! Reflecting on it now, it all seemed so simple. I was able to trust the process and implement new techniques that were taught,” he added.
This season, Cedrick’s joined by co-contestants Juan Gutierrez, Amanda Miller, Daniel Joseph Corpuz, Mellisa Root, Stephanie Norcio, Thiago Silva, and Tyricia Clark. All equally talented. However, Cedrick might have a slight upper hand on a few others, as School of Chocolate wasn’t his first time on a reality show.
Previously, Cedrick participated in the sixth season of the Holiday Baking Championship that aired on Food Network in 2020. He was sent home over his sweet potato pie with cake mix crust, cranberry gelée, and brown sugar meringue. The judges said his meringue to be loose, the cranberries to be bland and the cake burnt.
His IMBD profile mentioned him to have appeared on 5 episodes of Holiday Baking Championship, with the last being “Trendsetting Turkey Day.”
