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
