STORY: Chester baker to star in new Channel 4 TV show
Chester’s Pastry Pedaleur, the artisan baker of French-inspired gourmet pastries and desserts, has been selected from hundreds of entries to feature in Channel 4’s new six-part series ‘Aldi's next big thing’.
The new programme aims to give independent food and drink producers from across the country the chance to present and pitch their products to a judging panel that comprises Aldi's managing director of buying Julie Ashfield, award-winning grocer and cook book author Chris Bavin, and TV presenter Anita Rani.
The series, which first aired on 20 October and runs until 24 November, is being broadcast live on Channel 4 and is also be available via the All 4 video streaming service.
Pastry Pedaleur is set to feature in the episode two, which will be shown on 27 October at 8pm, when the business will go head-to-head with other bakers to win a contract.
Pastry Pedaleur, which located in Chester's new indoor market, was selected to take part in the new series thanks to the judges taking a shine to the way the products are all made onsite from scratch and skilfully crafted in bespoke, small batches using high quality, seasonal ingredients to ensure the best flavours are delivered all year round.
Stephanie Peters, the entrepreneur behind Pastry Pedaleur (pictured above), was previously the pastry chef at the Chester Grosvenor, where she mastered her skills under the guidance of chef Simon Radley.
Originally from Mumbai, Stephanie has been running her business inside Chester Market for the last two years.
