4 Levels of Ice Cream Sundaes: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 17 June 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of an ice cream sundae. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which sundae was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: https://www.ice.edu/blog/banana-passionfruit-gelato-recipe

                      Who wants to eat ice cream out of the shell of a passion fruit? I sure dont. you only get 2 scoops and you're done. that's an insult.

                        Usually I find the chef's different tools and techniques to be very interesting, but in this episode, he was supposed to make an ice cream sundae.. I definitely wouldn't think of his creation as that..

                                                                                        I would be embarrassed to show on a YouTube video with the lvl 1 chef's recipe 🤣.
                                                                                        It's like he isn't even trying...
                                                                                        Though to his defense, He did use a relatively high quality ice cream (Hagen Daz is really good)...

                                                                                        I don't know what you want from the lvl 3 chef, it's supposed to be fancy and tasty, that's his job!
