A STAR of the Great British Bake Off has revealed his favourite place to get a slice of cake in the city.

Jurgen Krauss controversially missed out on a place in the final of Channel 4 show, despite winning star baker in the opening two episodes of the 2021 series.

The German-born IT technician, who now lives in Kemp Town, has revealed his favourite bakery, shop, restaurant and more during a segment on The Argus Podcast called Five of the Best.

The full episode of The Argus Podcast featuring Jurgen is available now on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

If you were going for a coffee and a cake with a friend from out of town, where would you take them in Sussex?

“Julien Plumart – there is no question about that.

“His pastry is so fantastic. His macaroons are really amazing stuff.

“There are so many places in Brighton that have really, really good food.

“I happen to know the food of Julien Plumart from before he was on TV. My wife was one of his first customers and we are fans ever since.”

What is the best shop in Sussex?

“Brighton has a huge shopping centre with a huge number of small shops where you can spend hours and hours and hours.

“I suppose Infinity Foods – I could spend hours in there looking at different greens, sweets and spices.

“There is such an amazing mix of natural produce.”

Whether it be for a concert, comedy or theatre, what is the best venue around?

“The funny thing is, I haven’t had much time to go to concerts and theatres with commuting most of the time and then family.

“But I really like St George’s Church. It has wonderful acoustic.”

If you’re looking to escape the city, what is your favourite outdoors place to visit?

“Devil’s Dyke. We love going there and walking up through the dyke and then the steep wall at the end.

“It seems every time we go there it is quite foggy and wet, so you feel isolated. I love that.”

And lastly, whether it be for a drink or a sit-down meal, what is the best bar, pub or restaurant in Sussex?

“Again, there are so many but one that has a special meaning for us is Terre à Terre.

“We were taken there for the first time after our wedding and since then, we go back regularly.”
