4 Levels of Chili: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious
We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - an amateur, a home cook, and a professional - to make a pot of chili. Once each was simmered to perfection, we asked a food scientist to review their work. Whose chili earned top marks? Find out on this episode of 4 Levels.

    Level 3 chef sounds like Obama. Edit: turns out lots of people think so too. Nice to know I’m not crazy.

    I’m surprised Emily’s chili wasn’t just like ketchup and canned beans

    So it looks like you haven't done Four Levels of Curry yet (unless IT-my's search algorithm is failing me again). Could you do that, and also explain what function sugar performs and what changes could be made to keep it sugar-free without losing that function (too badly)? Pretty much every curry recipe I run into on these curry-paste containers says to add sugar in one form or another, but I'm trying to avoid adding extra sugar to things and I prefer to have Meat/Savory dishes be a separate category from Sweet dishes.

    There should be warning when they plan to execute an ingredient live, on the air. Not cool to surprise us with it.


    First time level 3 chef introduce himself just as a level 3 chef and not by his whole bio data 😅

    All of them just adding one type of bean makes me disappointed honestly. I usually add at least 3 different types of beans if not 5 types. Using more beans balances it out so you don't get as gassy after eating your chili. My go to beans are normally kidney, garbanzo, and black beans.

    I think the level 3 chef made a mistake, you shouldn't add cheese on seafood...
