$500 vs $16 Steak Dinner: Pro Chef & Home Cook Swap Ingredients | Epicurious

  • Published: 19 December 2019
  • Expert chef Frank and home cook Lorenzo are swapping their recipes and ingredients, just for your viewing pleasure. We gave Lorenzo $500 worth of ingredients and Frank's notebook to make the best steak dinner he could (with a quick assist from food scientist Rose!) On the other side, Frank received $16 worth of goods and tried to improvise his way up to gourmet. Who achieved the most impressive results under these mixed up circumstances?
