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

  • Published on Jun 20, 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.

    But. Starburst doesn't have a "Snap". It has an immediate pull and chew. So i'm not understanding the firmness follow by the snap she wanted when pulling.

    I'm not sure if America has it, I live in the uk and we had a bag called favereds. It was I think cherry, strawberry raspberry and apple. Delicious.

    I feel like the taffy/pulling technique was not the right ways ???? Maybe a marshmallow fluffy whipped technique but hardened would be more correct. That would prevent the hardness/stretching effect.

    Pavlov's Dog is a reference of Classical learning, studied by a Ivan(?) Pavlov. Its the idea of taking two stimuli to create a new learned response.
    Pavlov originally study the digestion (?) through dogs but came to notice that the dogs would salivate by just seeing the food dish, by just hearing the foot steps of Pavlov and his colleagues. Thus helping him form the idea of Classical conditioning.
    Dogs naturally salivate because of food. (Dogs use an unconditioned stimulus of seeing food to cause an unconditioned response of salivating.) By pairing the sight of food with a sound of a ding before the food, Pavlov is conditioning the dog to learn that the bell means food. (This is a neutral stimulus, when it is first used its just outside noise to the dog, not something that represents food.) By doing this enough times dogs will learn that the sound of a ding means food, making them salivate. Pavlov has now created a conditioned stimulus (the ding) to create a condition response (salivating) because the dog knows when they hear the ding they will get food.
