Molly Makes Classic Caesar Salad | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 27 August 2018
  • A great Caesar salad recipe gets its swagger from a great Caesar dressing recipe. Squeamish about raw egg yolks and anchovies? Sorry. Yolks are what give richness to the emulsion, while anchovies provide a briny blast (and that whole umami thing). Learn how to make BA's best classic caesar salad with Molly Baz!

      I was thinking the same... he will die if he sees u grill the FOCKING lettuce.

      Not the first to say it, but yes, he'd probably grill YOU for not cutting and washing the lettuce. Romaine gets especially dirty, gross! At least mention in the video if you used hydroponic ones!

          Gordon Ramsay openly humiliated a man in front of the mans whole restaurant for grilling lettuce but I guess times have changed

                    2:45 ... That cutting board is now going to impart anchovies and garlic into everything that is used on there! Anchovies?!I know a traditional Caesar salad calls for anchovies, but all they are is foul, stinky, salty little eye lashes!
                    Throw away the salad, throw away the cutting board and utensils... Flip the bench, pull a gas hose loose light a match and throw it in... Anchovies are the devil!

                                Somewhere along the way, someone added anchovies to Caesar salad. It WASN'T IN THE ORIGINAL.

                                                        Most salads are typically eaten with just a fork.

                                                        But this whole video....from the way she abbreviates everything, the fact she made shoes based on a salad, and the fact she really skipped the last syllable in black pepper....just....annoyed 😑
