4 Levels of Grilled Cheese: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 25 October 2019
  • This time we challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional - to make their versions of grilled cheese. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Whose version of the comfort food classic looks the best to you?

              Imagine going on a date with Daniel. He'd have zero interest in getting to know you. He'd be all "Me, me me", and checking his reflection in every reflective surface he passed. I found him self-absorbed and over-confident. It was more about him than the grilled cheese. He'd eat himself if he could.

                Me: *EXCUSE ME* ???? THAT'S IT! YOU OUT!

                        That chef was definitely not making a grilled cheese. That’s a full on sandwich right there

                                This is The first level 3 chef that I actually think I would eat over the other 2. Usually I’m a level 2 girl but wow.

                                  The amateur cheese is actually the best one. The level three "grilled cheese" is just a Croque Madame sandwich!!! Cheat!

                                    I don’t get why everyone is complaining about the blackberries. I actually thought it sounded pretty good. Also no one is forcing you to eat it.
