4 Levels of French Toast: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 11 April 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of French toast. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which French toast was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: https://www.ice.edu/blog/babka-french-toast-recipe

          I've been watching these all. Lorenzo seems like a sociopath, and honestly the level 2 chef is always super annoying.

                                                        Sometimes we add ground beef (called Roti John in Malaysia and Singapore)

                                                          Emily, girl, you be you, you do you. I don't put ketchup on my French toast, but I've put honey on mine... And my mom makes a dynamite recipe that uses no toppings at all -- she puts sugar in the batter. Different strokes for different folks. No complaints here. 😊😁✊✊
