Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Pocky | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Aug 20, 2019
  • Claire Saffitz had never had Pocky before. And then one day in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen her life changed forever. Her eyes are open and now she has ascended to Pocky level: Tsubu Tsubu (Strawberry Flakes), a level that it usually takes decades to reach. With her work in making a gourmet version of four flavors of Pocky - Chocolate, Matcha, Cookies & Cream and Strawberry Flakes - she is quickly climbing ever upwards in the Pocky Movement. Join Claire as she seeks Pocky Perfection.

    Love this show and I love each of the wonderful chefs, but the amount of times I hear Claire say "or I'm going to KILL myself" or make light of that idea in references to baking is very distracting and kind of insensitive. Same with Molly who literally said it at the end too.
