4 Levels of Ice Cream Sundaes: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Jun 17, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of an ice cream sundae. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which sundae was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/banana-passionfruit-gelato-recipe

    I would be embarrassed to show on a TVclip video with the lvl 1 chef's recipe 🤣.
    It's like he isn't even trying...
    Though to his defense, He did use a relatively high quality ice cream (Hagen Daz is really good)...
    I don't know what you want from the lvl 3 chef, it's supposed to be fancy and tasty, that's his job!

    Level 1 was maybe 20% (melted) ice cream. The rest was toppings, brownie and whipped cream. The amount of sugar in that bowl was shocking!
