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

  • Published: 20 June 2019
  • What does your favorite Starburst say about you?
    Red: Life is about power and you will stop at nothing to exert your influence over others. Be careful, because red Starbursts are in short supply and pursuing them is a lonely path.
    Pink: Compassion is at the center of your life. Make sure that you're not too generous or you'll end up with no pink Starbursts for yourself.
    Orange: This flavor is not bad. If you like it, that's good.
    Yellow: Some people call you quirky, others say you're eccentric. You go through life trying to fit the square piece into the round hole. But that's ok, because there will always be lots of yellow Starbursts for you to eat.

    At the end of the day, they're all delicious. Join pastry chef Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make gourmet Starburst.

    The things she discovers in trial and error could be made into actual candy like the marshmallow taffy stuff

          L-O-V-E, Claire. She is so humble and nails it as best one can as taking junk food and making it 'gourmet'.

                            Fun fact: when I was younger like 7 or 8 I pulled one of my teeth on a now and later. Like I was eating it and felt something hard and so I took it out my mouth and boom a tooth, just chilling in my now and later 😂

                              I wonder why Claire didn't use the skittle recipe.. it's a similar texture, without the hard shell..

                                        all im gonna say is the european starburst are much lighter in colour

                                        because no artificial colour

                                                I absolutely love this series...and I don’t even think I could explain why.
                                                It’s just so entertaining!
                                                You get to watch the staff interact with eachother and it almost feels like a mini BA doc.
                                                You never know who is gonna hop in and help. It’s just a really good series snd I Hope it continues for a long while.

                                                  She’s adorable even when frustrated.
