4 Levels of French Fries: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 08 October 2019

                                I really like Bianca, would love to see her again. And the others are pretty cool too! Khadija is fun and her method sounds delicious. I've always hated restaurant cheese sauce so I want a new kind of sauce too! And Palak is creative. Scratch that, I want to see them all again! :D

                                        Why can't they just say "I'm a level 3 chef" instead of "I used to cook for Jesus himself".
