4 Levels of Breakfast Sandwiches: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - amateur Emily, home cook Lorenzo, and professional chef Frank from the Institute of Culinary Education - to wake up our taste buds with an egg breakfast sandwich. Once each of them had presented their creation, we asked food scientist Rose to weigh-in on their choices. Which one of these breakfast sandwiches are you going to recreate this weekend? After this episode of 4 Levels, you might make all three.

Check out the level 3 recipe on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/sausage-breakfast-sandwich

    Emily: Brown your Bologna, put your rolls in the toaster oven. Frank: so I like to start off by making my own pan. I go in search of the perfect high carbon iron ore. And then, I go to Japan and look for the best traditional blacksmith in the entirety of the island to make my frying pan. Then, I fly to Spain to make authentic Spanish oil by cleaning and grinding the finest seeds in Spanish soil. Next I press them in a traditional stone grinder. And then, I dehydrate them of fatty acids through the addition of phosphoric acid and sodium hydroxide. After the phase of liquidation I put it into a small machine where the oil temperature is raised to more than 200 degrees Celsius After this stage, the oil should be ready for use. And then I fly to Italy and kill the finest pig in a farm. And while I'm there I get the finest grains of wheat from another local farm and grind it into wheat flour. And then I go to my farm in France and collect the eggs from my finest, most fertile chickens.

    What’s up with Lorenzo lately. That sandwich is ridiculous. It’s like they only employ him because of his likeable nature even tho it feels increasingly fake with each video. Nobody would add four or five rolling sausages to one sandwich, not to mention half inch slices of tomato.

    The first THREE were fails. The time to prepare BREAKFAST per portion is unjustified by the result. If the pro chef had made 25-50 servings it might have been reasonable to mix and bake bread taking 15 minutes, but that is longer than a sit down breakfast for one takes to eat. The roll and meat chosen by the level 1 cook were poor. All three sandwiches had too much fat, too much salt and not enough protein relative to the fat and carbs. The level 2 sandwich was too large and sloppy, too caloric fr a nrmal breakfast. . Ignoring the effort needed the pro chefs sandwich was the best. The food scientist was useless.
