  • We're giving 180º a try with this one, so this is best viewed in a VR headset, cardboard or mobile! Make sure to increase the quality setting for the best experience!
    Padma Lakshmi visits the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen to make very fancy scrambled eggs with champagne with Carla. Can she follow along using verbal instructions only?

    Padma Lakshmi is the host and executive producer of Bravo's Top Chef (Thursdays at 9pm ET), the author of Love, Loss, and What We Ate: A Memoir, an ambassador for the ACLU, and a visiting scholar at MIT.

                I guess I should be happy since this is the closest I will ever get to Padma but I prefer a regular video. This is too much.

                    same. but wasnt she a model first so technically shes a celebrity (rather than professional) chef?

                                I didn't think there was anything wrong with the video. Did the channel change the format? I didn't notice anything as "off."

                                        As a mobile watcher this VR thing was super annoying. There should be a way to toggle it to normal video mode.

                                          You have skilled videographers who can take advantage of all the gear the channel has been using up till now—use them!

                                          They can compose the shots far better than we ever can by panning around a funny wide angle window.

                                          (Not mentioning the fact that the optics of conventional lenses are better altogether!)

                                          It’s awesome that BA is so willing to try new and weird things, but this particular experiment hasn’t turned out well.

                                                  I liked the VR. the Youtube community are fickle... and don't like change. RIP VR BA.

                                                    If you're watching on a Boring Regular Computer, I found actually REDUCING the quality setting stopped the video lag. Looking forward to revisiting this when I get my bionic cyborg implant heads-up-display upgrade

                                                      Okay the concept is neat because you can look at the entire table. But it lacks the finesse in the editing and timing. It also isn’t accessible to many people. I know phone VR headsets are cheap but I really don’t need one sitting around my home.

If you watch the video on Chrome, not the official app, the video isn't in VR. The cuts are quick and a little bit annoying, but the overall video quality is good. If you ignore the lighting of course.
                                                                                                I don't know how this will work on a PC, but if you have a phone any browser that isn't the official app with avoid the VR format.
