4 Levels of Sushi: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - an amateur, a home cook, and a professional - to prepare their version of sushi. After each of them had presented their creation, we asked a food scientist to review their work. Which one would you wrap your chopsticks around?

    How is this a level 3 chef ? She has an accent, which makes her a level 1000. She prayed to rice, and that makes her a level 100000000000000000 chef.

    They should try each others food instead of their own. Of course they will like their own food. You cannot get an accurate judgment of the food unless it is critiqued by another person because most people won't say their own stuff is crap even if it is,
