  • Bon Appetit's Senior Food Editor and pastry chef Claire Saffitz attempts to make a gourmet Twinkie without the hard-to-pronounce chemical ingredients. The first test is Genoise cake, an Italian sponge cake. For the creamy filling, Claire uses 7 minute frosting. The second test is yellow cake and buttercream filling. Next comes chiffon cake, a light cake that uses vegetable oil. Finally, with some help from Test Kitchen Manager Brad Leone, Claire decides to "Frankenstein" the recipe.

                                            I just watched the first and the most recent gourmet makes and I realized that this is basically a show showing how over the course of almost three years how all the chefs go gray.

                                                      Bon Appetite and Claire...you totally repulse me. Your use of "g.d." was very uncalled for and unprofessional. Ive lost my respect for this company. And to know that using that word was not what you wanted to edit.

                                                          I'm so glad they stopped throwing away all the food they buy at the beginning. They've got more than 200 employees. I'm sure those Twinkies would have been eaten.
