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

  • Published on Jun 17, 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: www.ice.edu/blog/banana-passionfruit-gelato-recipe

    Level 3: Too much of passion fruit, herb on top? what. I would have just had the passion fruit caramel sauce. Just too much fancy smanshy

    Most of those who bother leaving a comment just make fun of level one and three and praise the two, finding it fun & original. Guess what is original : NONE OF YOUR JOKES!

    I was VERY hopeful up until I saw the little girl (waif) of a "level 4 food expert" that looks like she never eats.
    omfg... level one isn't making ice cream, he's just mixing stuff... I mean it Looks ok, but he's Not Cooking Anything.
    Beth Cooked, so did Rory. (I'm a COOK, not a chef. I'm a Pretty DAM good cook.)
    2:10 That is a BENCH SCRAPER, Knives are for chopping >.<
    IDK, I'd go with Beths. Gelato isn't my bag, but I wouldn't mind trying it. And steven was... NOT a Cook.

    Everytime I see Beth in a video her food is ALWAYS better looking and more authentic then anything the Level 3 can make. She is NOT a Level 2 Chef at all. She’s Level 3.
