    Lorenzo has to win,the man made a whole mountain of meat and flavours,and so did emily,but without the bacon,but frank,oh lord frank,his burger looked the saddest,so small no special ingredients,and why would you make your own pickles for a single video? Seems like a waste of time and a delay to the video,overall just time wasted,would much rather eat lorenzos burger than emily's or frank's

    level 1: everything that is happening right now is okay. who cares as long as i can eat it
    level 2: makes it with lots of love. you can see how they smile making it because they are professionals of their own.
    level 3. over the top. makes everything scientific and technical. they dont do the usual but according to what they've learned.

    Level two: In the morning, my farmer drops off a shipmeant of the finest materials.
    Level three: I like sneaking out around 12 and going to Japan. There, I 'peacefully liberate' the farm and turn the cows in to fresh organic meat. I then sniff the grass to find the finest herbs. I like the greenest of grass, it smells like sour crout.

    Frank basically strangled a rare tiger in Botswana with his own hands and peeled the skin off with his nails because only he knows the right way, in order not to ruin the taste of the meat.

  • Lord Edward
    Lord Edward 2 days ago

    The thing that I find most noteworthy, is that the "level 3" chef made way too much out of a relatively simple process. Is freshly ground beef better? Yeah, but is isn't that much better. Home made pickles? Again, better? Maybe but that much better? Choice of cheese or bun is a personal preference. Personally, cheddar is way better than Munster in my book. All things considered, the only useful tips normal people can get from this all came for Level 2. Level 1 is nothing more than an incompetent cook not truly a demonstration of Level 1.
