Teyssier changes the rules of the entrance exam
It’s a great day at the Auguste Armand Institute: the entrance exam tests begin today. In the queue, Amber struggles to hide his stress, but Solal reminds him that they are one step ahead of the other candidates since they trained with Celia.
Salomé, who knows that Kelly does not have the authorization to take the competition, adds the name of her niece by hand on the list of registrants. But that’s when Charlene arrives to take over from Salomé at reception and asks Kelly for her summons. Kelly pretends to dig in her bag to save time, but luckily Charlene’s attention is diverted by the presence in the line of Tom Azem, a YouTuber who makes ASMR cooking videos. Impressed by his presence here, she forgets Kelly and Salomé takes the opportunity to give the competition to her niece.
Further in the park, Greg is surprised to find an old acquaintance, Jasmine, who worked in Chef Delobel’s restaurant, and who is there to take the competition. He introduces her to Eliott, her boyfriend, and does not seem delighted to see Jasmine unload at the institute, adding that she is “completely crazy”, in reference to her whimsical and supercharged side.
Enzo, for his part, crosses paths with Deva, another candidate, in the aisles of the institute, and does not hesitate to give her a charming number. However, he soon discovers that Deva is the little protégé of Clotilde Armand, who also arrives at the same time to wish the young woman good luck for the competition.
A little later, the candidates for the competition are gathered in the amphitheater. Teyssier gives them a speech and reminds them in particular that, if there are 100 today, only 20 of them will be accepted in the first year. Antoine intervenes and tries to reassure them. They all have their chances. Myriel then tells them about the competition: they will take the cooking test today, then the 50 candidates selected at the end of it will be entitled to a pastry test tomorrow.
Only, Teyssier has an announcement to make: there has been a change of program. The cooking test will take place tomorrow, and the pastry test on Wednesday. And today, the candidates will take the indoor test. Everyone is surprised by this change in the rules, Antoine included, but Teyssier emphasizes that a good cook must be able to adapt. He ends his speech by announcing that the final results will be released on Thursday.
Claire discovers Kelly and Salomé’s shenanigans
Before the indoor test, Lisandro gives some advice to the candidates and explains to them that they will be graded on their sense of contact and their culinary knowledge. As for the dishes that will be offered, they will be emblematic dishes of Double A. Solal asks who will be the test customers and Lisandro reveals that the customers will be played by the members of the jury. Including the director, Chef Teyssier. A news that anguishes Kelly.
While Jasmine and Solal pass their ordeal, Kelly draws the red card, which means that she will be judged by Teyssier and the chef Armand. Tom, meanwhile, draws the blue card, which corresponds to the jury made up of Claire and Louis. Understanding that Tom is very sure of himself and that he is not afraid of Teyssier, Kelly offers to exchange their boxes, and he accepts.
Louis recognizes Kelly and remembers that Teyssier had forbidden him to take the competition. Kelly assures us that he has changed his mind. The test begins, and Kelly is stressed, destabilized by the presence a few meters away from Teyssier, who fortunately turns his back on her. Even if she made a rather good impression on the jury, Claire points out to her son that Kelly seemed in a hurry to get it over with.
Claire therefore leaves to see Salomé and asks to see Kelly’s summons. She quickly understands that Salomé sneaked her niece into the competition. Salome tries to plead Kelly’s cause, but Claire asks her to stop meddling in this story. After all, Salome could get fired if that happened.
In the park, Ambre confides to Célia and Solal that she has come across Chef Teyssier and Chef Armand, and …
