The duo fought of competition from rival pastry chefs representing The Dorchester and Harwoods Patisserie.
Di Lieto has been head pastry chef for over four years at the five-star Marylebone hotel and has worked alongside Schevenels since 2021. Together they hold upwards of 60 years’ experience in patisserie.
The winners impressed judges, Benoit Blin and Cherish Finden, in the final with their creations, which included a chocolate and salted caramel Swiss roll with banana cremaux and peanut butter.
To celebrate the win, Di Lieto and Schevenels have designed a new afternoon tea inspired by the winning desserts and pastries they created on the Channel 4 show.
Afternoon Tea will be served in the Winter Garden Restaurant under the hotel's eight-storey-high glass atrium.
“Being a part of Bake Off: The Professionals was an unforgettable and life-changing experience. Not only was the competition tough and talent abundant, but it really challenged our creativity and technical abilities. We’ve come back to The Landmark London inspired and brimming with ideas, starting with our new Afternoon Tea which is a must-try experience when visiting London," Di Lieto says.
CEO of The Lancaster Landmark Hotel Company and General Manager of The Landmark London, Fergus Stewart, added: “Mauro and Daniel have been an asset to our hotel for many years. Not only have they crafted our renowned High Palms High Tea, known across the country, but they serve up to 900 guests per day with no compromise on quality. I’m thrilled to see their talents recognised and accredited on the show when competing against such tough competition, and I look forward to the creations they have planned for the hotel.”
