4 Levels of Steak: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

    I hate how all of them think their cooking is good but when you compare it to the actual chef they're so bad at cooking. It annoys me how they think they know how to cook lmao

    I like how this show never has a grill. Like when I watched the burger episode I was just like sat there thinking about cooking my burgers on the grill and not a stove and now it’s the same.

    A good cut of beef does not need all that extra spices. Maybe a little salt and pepper anything more is too much!
    If you are starting with factory farm junk meat fine do this.

    She didnt make a bearnaise at all. Bearnaise has to have tarragon.
    This was just a hollandaise with herbs.
    Get your facts straight. She should be ashamed after working in France to get such a classic french sauce wrong
