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

  • Published: 22 May 2019
  • Nacho cheese exists in two states: the melted cheese state and the powdered cheese state*. When it comes to the powdered cheese state, all pale in comparison to Nacho Cheese Doritos, continually perfected by science and consistently beloved by the masses since 1972. Join pastry chef Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to take Nacho Cheese Doritos to the next level and make them gourmet!

    *The third state of nacho cheese, cheese sauce, is controversial in the nacho community and for our purposes we are disregarding it. For more reading, see the studies ‘Nachos in Nature’ (1983), ‘Dormant Doritos’ (1992), ‘The Quest for Queso’ (1999), ‘This Powdered Chip’ (2001) and ‘The Health Benefits of Nachos and the Search for Immortality’ (2007).

                They are great when chocolate covered. As long as you temper the chocolate.😁

                      I’m exactly like Chris, I smell my food before I consume it! 😂 People always look at me weird cause I do it all the time, if it doesn’t smell good, I won’t consume it 😂

                        Little known fact. Doritos were created in a restaurant kitchen within Disneyland.

                                                This is irritating me because she is not putting in baking soda and baking powder so she is making flat bread and as a pastry chef she should know this arrrrrgggggghhhhhhhh, and the worst part is I see Hispanics in the background they should tell her. For 1 lb of corn masa you put in 1 tsp baking powder and 2 tsp baking soda and your chips will blow up. We make corn chips all the time here in Texas.
