    Great show for people interesting in baking. It covers more than just chocolate. Aumry gives gentle criticism in a way only the French can do, but makes it clear that even though this is a competition, it's also a vast learning experience for the professional participants. If you like the more civilized shows, like The Great British Bakeoff, then I think you'll enjoy this as well.

    Talented chef, Funny and great mentor! Amazing show and a fresh concept! You won't be disappointed

    Where this show fails (as compared to something like Great British Bake-off) is that it is overly competitive by design. Also, some of the rules seem geared toward getting the participants to dislike each other. That said, it is enjoyable to watch the creativity and craft of the participants. They make some amazing things.

    I've watched plenty of cooking competition shows, and I've seen countless videos of Amaury Guichon's chocolate creations, so I was expecting the same type of show, but with chocolate engineering. But where this show differs from the others is in the "school" format. Chef Guichon is actually interested in training these contestants to craft the different elements (e.g., transparent sugar domes; lathed pieces) so nobody is eliminated after each episode. The series is a bit tough to get into, as both Chef and contestants seem very unsure and wooden at first, but as their skills improve and the season progresses, the personalities come out - for better or worse - and the chocolate and pastry creations progress from "meh...I could probably do that if I tried" to truly stunning works of art. I found that each episode ended in the most bizarre spot, though, but this is probably because I was expecting something like Great British Baking Show, where the format is challenge-challenge-challenge-elimination. Without eliminations, School of Chocolate had no easy way to tie up each episode. Instead they created something of a cliffhanger to compel you to continue watching, and sometimes the timing felt awkward. It isn't the most amazing food-related competition out there, but it's great for a lazy weekend of binge-watching with the family. But have some chocolate on hand if you do.
