  • Published on Jul 16, 2019
  • One dish. Two days. We challenged super taster Chris Morocco to blindly taste a dish made by Andy and then reverse engineer it as closely to the original as he can. The challenge this episode: Jamie Oliver's Insanity Burger.

      @coloredglass he only disliked the lettuce mayo on the bottom, which tbf lettuce goes ontop. I guess jamie used it as a barrier so the bottom doesn't get soggy

    Having lived in the UK for 14 years, if you have a burger that has been ruined, assume it was a British chef. (Obviously there are exceptions. My personal signature burger technique is loosely from Heston Blumenthal.)

    you put letttuce on the bottom so bun doesnt get soggy , smart boy

    • Djawn Sjhilson
      Djawn Sjhilson 2 days ago

      that bun is noticeably soggy! i think it is because heat rises and you get slimy lettuce. i don't think a bottom bun can stand up to the layer of sadness though.

    Wait, is that a rare burger? Apparently Jamie Oliver failed food safety.

    For those who don't know because it's been minced any bacteria will be mixed throughout unlike a steak where it will only be on the surface.

    Interesting that he was trying to recreate some of the hallmarks of the ketchup before going with actual ketchup (acidity from vinegar, sugar).

    The next installment should feature recreating a soup or stew with flavors more blended together rather than discrete layers of flavor.

    There is a German TV Show called "Kitchen Impossible" where Chefs send each other to different kitchens around the world and they have to replicate a dish by taste in the original kitchen and will be judged by a local jury. Chris should participate!

    The beef is not cooked. For steak, it's OK for it to be red in the middle, but not mince.

    This would be the best series after Claire's "Recreating Gourmet Foods" one. Super fun to watch and extremely informative for someone who likes knowing what ingredients bring to a dish. Good episode

    Isn’t the lettuce on the bottom so the heat of the burger doesn’t wilt it
