Jeffery Koo has a string of medals under his belt including the World Chocolate Master – “Best Taste Award”, a silver medal in the Swiss Creation Chocolate Competition, and silver in China’s International Chocolate Master Competition. And now he’s on Bake Off: The Professionals 2022 to add another merit to his name.
This “Jeffery Koo Bio” explores his life.
Jeffery Koo On Bake Off: The Professionals 2022
Channel 4’s Bake Off: The Professionals Season 5 premiered on May 24, 2022, and like always it saw a line-up of expert chefs competing for that bouquet and a cake stand trophy. Yes, there was no cash prize, whatsoever, for the victor, in case you didn’t know.
Also, the judges this time were Benoit Blin and Cherish Finden and they were joined by the hosts Liam Charles and Stacey Solomon (who replaced comedian Tom Allen).
Jeffery Koo joined this competition alongside his sister-in-law Venus who was working alongside him at his own restaurant. This also means they developed a formidable bond which was definitely reflected during their task on the first set of heats in episodes one to three.
However, Jeffery and Venus weren’t the only ones with the “bonds.” Their co-constantans — Boglarka and Krisztian (co-owner of Jó Szerencsét) were a couple from Hungary with 2 kids, Jeffery and Venus were brother and sister-in-law and had their own business, Mireia Ferreres Luna and Robert Stace both worked at the historic Levens Kitchen for almost 2 years, David and Cydrick were brothers who represented Maison Mayci, and Jemima and Zack represented Puddles Bespoke Patisseries.
Only, Emanuele and Mariola, Antoine and Enrico, and Nathan and Kevin didn’t share much history like the others.
Letting his fans know that he’d be appearing on the popular baking show, Jeffery took it to his IG on May 19, 2022, to write, “It is honour to participate in the well-known TV program in UK @britishbakeoff, Bake off Professional. Channel 4: episode 1 on 24th May at 8 pm.”
