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.

  • Valkes

    level 3 chef makes a not chili. Your while video is invalid.

  • zonespinx

    Just because you call it seafood “chili”, doesn’t make it chili. That is something else. Stop calling it chili.

    Thank you Lorenzo. My Dad adores you but he was so worried you were going to add elbow macaroni and he said that would ruin your relationship. He would no longer be able to trust you.

    Ground turkey is actually NOT healthier than ground beef. If you look it up they actually share a perfect 50/50 split in pros and cons. The pros don't outweigh the cons or vice versa

  • Crash

    The second a chef says "ground turkey" I get irrationally angry.
