Multi-layered miniatures and choux towers were the tasks facing the five remaining teams this week.Returning to the kitchen were:Thibault & Erica, Kimpton Fitzroy HotelSarah & Leyre, Pennyhill ParkJake & Kevin, Four Seasons at Ten Trinity SquareSanjam & Exose, The Courthouse CheshirePauline & Robert, TigerlilyFirst up were the multi-layered miniatures, with 24 layered cheesecakes and 24 pear-shaped desserts requested. The cheesecakes had to have at least five layers, and the pear-shaped desserts a minimum of three fillings, with pear the most dominant flavour.I’ll spare you the vast number of pear-shaped jokes made by presenter Tom Allen.“Whatever they put on the table needs to be first-class, it needs to be top-drawer. However, be realistic about what you can do and what you can’t. Do not be over-ambitious,” said judge Cherish Finden ahead of the task.The chefs began by making layers for the cheesecake, so they could be placed in the freezer in plenty of time.Thibault & Erica chose to make a cheesecake with two baked elements – a coconut dacquoise and a baked raspberry cheesecake. Jake & Kevin opted for vanilla and passionfruit, Sanjam & Exose a chocolate orange variant and Pauline & Robert an Asian-inspired matcha and lychee combination.Meanwhile, as the only team opting to go for 10 layers, Sarah & Leyre (pictured below) created a white chocolate cheesecake with a spiced sponge and red fruit confit gel.“You know I have my ruler with me again,” warned Cherish. She is terrifying.For the pear-shaped desserts, four of the five teams went for classic sweet flavours, while Pauline & Robert included a goat’s cheese mousse.First to face the judgment of Benoit & Cherish were Sarah & Leyre with their 10-layer offering. Cherish said she didn’t need to get her ruler out for the cheesecakes – high praise indeed.Thibault & Erica’s cheesecake also got the thumbs-up, as did their pears.“Visually very safe: was the verdict on Jake & Kevin’s cheesecake, and their ratios were off, although the pear was deemed “quite pleasant”.Pauline & Robert’s cheesecake wasn’t highly finished, and the flavours confused Cherish. Also, their pears had fallen over, which Cherish likened to having a bum too big for the chair.“Good news, I can taste the goat’s cheese” said Benoit. “Bad news, I don’t like it.”Sanjam & Exose’s (pictured below) cheesecake was also deemed “safe”, and Cherish said their pears looked like they’d been in a fight. “I think you two are like rough diamonds,” said Benoit, somewhat cryptically.On day two, the professionals were tasked with making a towering Pièce Montée, with 180 filled choux buns displayed in a cone shape on a nougatine stand.Inspired by opera, Sarah & Leyre chose vanilla & pecan and chocolate & cherry flavours to fill their choux.Thibault & Erica opted for a fashion week theme, with cherry & chocolate and coffee & cardamom choux fillings.A British theme, with Eton Mess and rhubarb & custard fillings, was the choice for Sanjam & Exose.Meanwhile, creating a beehive-themed piece, Pauline & Robert planned to have sugarwork bees and flavoured choux fillings, including honeycomb & yuzu and elderflower & tonic.Kevin & Jake plumped for an ode to spring, with vanilla & orange blossom and red berry filled choux buns to complement this.All seemed to be going well until the chefs started on the nougatine; the speed at which this set proved problematic, with Sanjam & Exose’s breaking as it was cut. “I’m slowly giving up,” Sanjam admitted. And, if that weren’t dramatic enough, Exose’s gloves didn’t fit.Pauline & Robert were also having issues, but their problem was the sugarwork bees. “I can’t do it,” Robert declared.Kevin & Jake were first to be judged, with their piece described as “very colourful” and “elegant”. The flavours got a thumbs-up too.Next were Sarah & Leyre, and while their showpiece looked the part, their choux wasn’t right.The judges loved the look of Thibault & Erica’s fashion-themed piece. “I can see this on the cover of a fashion magazine,” Cherish said. They liked the taste, too, with Cherish declaring: “You should be very proud of yourselves, you nailed it.”Pauline & Robert were next. “Where are the bees?” asked Cherish. Sore subject. The flavours were good, but the lack of bees let the team down.Last to face the judges were Sanjam & Exose. “Forget the diamond, this is rough” Benoit said, gesturing towards unfinished showpiece. Ouch.But a certain lack of buzz decided this week’s contest, with the bee-stricken Pauline & Robert leaving the competition. Thibault & Erica (pictured below) took the top spot, Jake & Kevin came in second, Sarah & Leyre third and Sanjam & Exose scraping into second-to-last place.
USC organizations hosted Football 101, an event designed to help students get a better understanding of the game and culture of American football, at Heritage Hall on Friday.Football school · Alex Rios, a recruiting analyst for USC football, explains the different player positions at the Football 101 session. – Carol Kim | Daily TrojanUSC Program Board’s International Student Assembly, Graduate Student Government and Recreational Sports collaborated to host the event, with sponsorship from the Office of International Services and others.“Beat the Sun Devils” T-shirts and tote bags, as well as free game tickets, were passed out to the 100 participants.USG Wellness kicked off the event by talking about tailgating policies and safety. GSG organized a tailgate on Trousdale Parkway so all the participants of the event could experience the chaos and Trojan spirit for themselves on game day.Donald Ludwig, executive director of USC Spirit and Traditions and USC Spirituality and Sports, and Luis Nevarez, a senior safety on the Trojan football team, talked about what it means to be a part of the Trojan family. They went on to explain the game of football, everything from specifying the dimensions of the field to creating an interactive activity for the audience to understand the snap count. While a football helmet was being passed around the room, Ludwig and Nevarez helped the event’s participants feel like they would be able to yell and chant with the rest of the Trojans at the ASU game.The event ended with a jock rally and performances from the Trojan Marching Band and the Song Girls.“This is actually an annual event, and we at GSG wanted to continue this because we wanted to get the students accustomed to American culture as well as USC culture,” GSG President Yohey Tokumitsu said.He said that another purpose of the event was to familiarize international students with tailgating culture.While this event had been held in years past, this was the first time a number of USC organizations collaborated on it.“I asked the Office of International Services, and they led me to speak to Athletics, as well as Rec Sports, ISA and USG. They were very helpful and eager to work on this project with us,” Tokumitsu said.Rachel Zou, director of ISA, believed that there was a great deal of student demand for an event like this, especially because of their efforts to increase publicity for Football 101 this year. Four hundred undergraduate and graduate students at USC RSVP’d for the event. Because of limited capacity, the 100 participants were chosen through a lottery system.“I think there is a lot of student demand [for an event like this], especially for free football tickets,” Zou said. “I think there is also a lot of student demand among international students to understand how football works because football is a foreign concept to people outside of America. I grew up in America, but I am not an avid football fan. I came to USC and had no idea what the rules of football were, so Football 101 has really helped me understand that.”Participant feedback was positive.“I think I will understand more and enjoy the game more because I’ll know what and when to cheer,” said Jolie Vu, a graduate student at the Leventhal School of Accounting. “They should definitely have this event every year.”Students who had previously attended football games also found the event to be helpful.“The workshop was great,” said Danshi Li, a graduate student in mechanical engineering. “I’ve seen a lot of football games at USC, but this will be really helpful for the game tomorrow because it’s clearer how to be integrated into the Trojan community and cheer with everyone.”
