4 Levels of Steak: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Sep 19, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of steak. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which steak was the best?

    Bleu cheese butter hurts people who are allergic to it 😂
    Sorry I just laughed when she said that since I'm allergic. Not trying to be rude just thought it was really funny.

    no 👏 No 👏 NO 👏. I don't understand why this is a thing. 0:58 The bone does NOT impart more flavor! Maybe I'd understand if she said the meat on the bone is delicious. But there are no juices/marrow magically being injected into the meat through the bone, making it more delicious.

    Those lv 3 chefs that cooks and let the marinate rest for like, 24 hours. Do they simply leave the studio after cooking for 10 minutos to come back the other day? How hard is that?

    I hate how all of them think their cooking is good but when you compare it to the actual chef they're so bad at cooking. It annoys me how they think they know how to cook lmao

    A good cut of beef does not need all that extra spices. Maybe a little salt and pepper anything more is too much!
    If you are starting with factory farm junk meat fine do this.

    She didnt make a bearnaise at all. Bearnaise has to have tarragon.
    This was just a hollandaise with herbs.
    Get your facts straight. She should be ashamed after working in France to get such a classic french sauce wrong
