  • What's the one thing that everybody consistently associates Snoop Dogg with? That's right, the classic French dish Lobster Thermidor. We challenged resident Bon Appétit super taster Chris Morocco to recreate Snoop's famous lobster recipe using every sense he has other than sight.

      This is so tough. Most chefs would not be able to pull this off.

      FYI y'all should pair with prizeo with the prize being a test kitchen visit or doing a back to back with Carla. I think you'd make a lot more money because people could bid 5-20 dollars that can't afford 1K and higher. Just a thought.

          Wow. I've always respected Chris for being a technical genius, but my respect just went way up seeing him killing the lobster before cooking it. Way to be, dude.

              He is way to good in this. Next time make a "easy" recipe but also make him cook it blindfold.

                  Within the first 2:30 he's described the entire plate while blind folded, better than I could have ever done whilst injecting into my eyes and mouth.

                    Chris' pallette is so refined he tasted in the air that lobster was going to be involved in someway and brought his lobster blindfold to this blind taste test. ... Also I'm dying at him reading the cookbook!! Nephew, is that a thing?? 😂😂😂

                                      Chris has got some skills. I'm surprised he didn't pick up on the gruyere but I think it was because he was distracted trying to figure out the bread/crackers situation.

                                            I'm glad that the lobster was killed quick instead of boiled alive but man that crunch broke my heart :(
