Selasi’s cooking up a plan
And it could see him opening a bakery nearby
GREAT British Bake Off fans may have the cherry on their cake after exiting contestant Selasi announced he has plans to open a west London bakery.
Hearts broke across the country as city baker Selasi Gbormittah was eliminated from the Bake Off tent last week after patisserie week didn’t work in his favour.
The hugely-popular contestant was hit with a wave of reaction from viewers who felt he should have been allowed to get to the final, despite the judges voting his creation last in the technical challenge.
He also got a frown from judge Paul Hollywood when his dish was underbaked in the first round.
But in an interview with The Radio Times , he said: “I do love banking but I’m hoping to open a bakery somewhere in west London in the foreseeable future.”
And if that wasn’t enough to appease his fans, he added: “My immediate adventure however, is a motorbike/ baking tour across Europe which I’m currently planning.
“I hope to share all the recipes I learn in a book.”
The 2016 semi-finalist was a favourite on the BBC show and readers were left astounded after judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood decided to let him go.
