4 Levels of Brownies: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on:  Friday, December 21, 2018
  • How do you like your brownies? Gooey? Cakey? We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of the brownie. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which brownie was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: https://www.ice.edu/blog/bourbon-salted-caramel-brownie-recipe

    Level 2 chef: I’m a level two chef
    Level 3 chef: personally I like to make the flour myself. I was also a cook for Mary Antoinette for 30 years.

    I was expecting amateur to start like, alright so I pour my brownie mix into a bowl, add my eggs, water, and vegetable oil, put it in my pan, put the pan in the oven, and we are done.

    I hate when brownies have nuts. It’s chocolate. Why do you have to add gross healthy stuff?

    I want Ada's brownies. Once again, levels 2 and 3 get competitive and ruin a homey dessert.

    Cake texture is preferred less fudge texture makes me think it not cooked all way and then there also cooked crusted texture make me think yummy thoughts. I have question about why don't use cocoa powder + chocolate chips melted make richer brownie flavor profile and none of chefs use milk?
