Bonnefo's strategy is simple: create something "very specific and very challenging:"

“You have to do something very specific and very challenging. Pastry is something very precise, very accurate. And when you start the show, you don’t know what’s happen[ing].”

New episodes of Spring Baking Championship premiere on the Food Network every Monday at 8 p.m. ET.
