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

Fikrlar

  • I also eat ketchup on my French toast

  • Emily made English Eggy Bread. Failed with Ketchup - Brown sauce all the way.

  • I would like to see the chefs try the others creations and also see their reactions.

  • In Spain we call it torrijas, and it's typical easter dessert. But we use better quality bread, regular bread, one or two days old, and soaked in aromatized milk for a couple of minutes before they are soaked in stirred eggs. The aromas are lemon zest and cinnamon. And toppings, only regular white sugar, right when they come out of the pan, so it melts. Yummy!!!

  • The level 3 french toast is actually mostly right people usually add Nutella or chantilly with the banana it’s sooo good

  • WTF !?! As a french I am disgusted by their choice of bread dafuq???

  • I wanna make my own batakab

  • I would try level 2 ❤️❤️ level 3 is.... tooo much and level 1 is ok 👌 but too plain 😁

  • Didn't once address the effects of flour and spices in the custard which was one of the primary differences between them all. Very weak review.

  • Does anyone actually watch the food scientist part?

  • Lorenzo always kills it

  • Emily is such a mood but GIRL WHY DID YOU PUT KETCHUP ON YOUR FRENCH TOAST?????

  • In reality, she really just made an eggy bread, I doubt that it's very sweet, so ketchup in her situation might not be that bad

  • all of you ruined it >:(

  • why do they keep calling it custard? swear custard is boiled cream and milk with tempered egg yolk and sugar???

  • i would eat this alone in the dark... ME

  • I've found that Sara Lee's Artesano bread is perfect for French toast.

  • They dont help old girl at all 😂 just be setting her up to get roasted

  • According to the comments, I'm an abomination as well. Its ok Emily, I support you.

  • Nobody listen to level 4 chef she can’t even cook

  • Everyone likes Emily i liked her up until she decided to eat her french toast with ketchup

  • KETCHUP ? Seriously !? >:(

  • lorenzos looks like absolute heaven... level 3 did to much

  • i thought she said vodka i was like for breakfast??? i mean okay i’ll try it

  • Please do mashed potatoes!

  • I had no idea stale bread was used to make French toast. Very interesting!

  • 9:50 we saw 2 different ways of making french toast*

  • Level 1: essentially made a backwards scrambled egg sandwich hence why the ketchup might be a good idea to her. I am not a supporter of ketchup on eggs. That's nasty!

  • Stop calling the "food scientist" a level 4. It's insulting to chef's everywhere.

  • I'd prefer to watch a cooking show with the level 2 guy. He's friendly, happy and down to earth. The chef reminds me of a middle school home economics teacher who is always telling you what you did wrong.

    • I agree, though I think People always assume the level 4 chef is stuck up or elitist. A lot of times they are regular people who care about their craft, and are used to a certain environment.

  • I love how passionate Lorenzo is about food, his little tips are so helpful!

  • She's my favorite level 1 chef so far

  • This should called 10 minutes vs 1hour vs half day of making.

  • Wrong Emily Maple syrup not ketchup

  • My favorite French toast is BLUEBERRY FRENCH TOAST

  • ketchup...?.....emily...lovey.....bless your heart, but you're a psychopath that made pan-fried egg bread and called it french toast

  • Level 1 is mood

  • I am literally the red head lmfao. I too put ketchup on my French toast

  • Emily cracked me up!

  • ”I will eat this alone in the dark.” I wanna marry Emily.

  • You can garnish this with whatever you want I like to put ketchup on it *BECAUSE I'M A MONSTER*

  • Tbh Lorenzo’s stuff always look the best

  • Did penny wait there overnight for her doe to be ready? :(

  • Lorenzo is best best best girl!

  • u would be so embarrassed to be Emily

  • Lorenzo's mmmm! 😋

  • I want to marry the level 1 chef

  • Emily is my spirit animal.

  • Ketchup???? Okay, I think she is a woman of culture as well......

  • Ok but do people actually eat ketchup w their french toast or

  • I really like the fact that we finally have a relatable level 1 chef! Go Emily! Also, Lorenzo is just amazing

  • If the level 1 chef knows how to make french toast, what level am i not knowing how to make french toast and about all other complex foods

  • I like my french toast a little wet 😨

  • Lorenzo wenn du das liest: du bist ein Ehrenmann

  • Here's a real headscratcher: How come they call it "Fresh Toast" if it's cooked?

    • Like many food names it's not always possible to confirm the story, but one version is that the way we make French toast now can be traced back to an innkeeper in New York in the 18th century named J. French. So it's French's toast which became french toast. Like German chocolate cake is not named after the country but a man named German.

  • expert: here's why emily is always wrong XD ..gotta love the girl tho

  • i think i'll have that plain toast with ketchup hahaha, others are just too much for me 😂

  • Emily does something wrong Food scientist: I'm about to end this woman's career

    • Nobody: Just Mal: *You know what i should make a meme on youtube because you know nobody is gonna see it so everybody will like it*

  • Level one with the KETCHUP help I'm cringing SOOO bad

  • I'll eat emilys toast cuz who puts chocolate on eggs

  • 3:45 ooooooo hellll no you can’t do that She should go to prison for that

  • I love the level 1 chef haha!

  • 2:50 that transition tho😂

  • I audibly screeched when Emily pulled out the Ketchup

  • 2018: WHAT IF IM THE MONSTER!!!! 2019: I like to put ketchup on cause I'm a monster!!

  • This is the first time I've ever heard of anybody eating french toast with ketchup. You're right, Emily. You are a monster.

  • KETCHUP???SERIOUSLY?

  • Wait where is the other level 3 guy?

  • *or just eat a banana*

  • Lorenzo, that looks amazing! Well done! You've got my vote!

  • Stop making me hungry! Then again, if I didn’t want to be hungry, I wouldn’t be watching this video.

  • Why are the amateur chefs always OVERLY amateur lmfao

  • Is there something that lorenzo doesn't make once a month?

  • Let's be real, we're all Emily

  • Look at least Emily is self aware...

  • Tbh I liked Emily’s until I saw her put ketchup...

  • The level one girls probelms are so relatable to me

  • Don’t be mean I eat toast with ketchup

  • Emily : Poor girl Lorenzo : Funny guy Every level 3 chef : I like to make that myself

  • I sware at least this time frank isn’t here cos if all were her I would be so suprised

  • Every episode of 4 levels: Level 1: Hi I'm ____ and I am a level 1 chef Lvl 2: Hi I'm ____ and I am a level 2 chef Lvl 3: My name is ____ and I've been cooking since I was 6 years old. I was raised to cook and now I own a franchise of businesses scattered throughout the continental US devoted to my personal recipes. I'm going to start by making my whisk from scratch

  • Emily I understand your a level 1 and the use of store bought sand which bread because it’s cheap but 1. Ketchup with something sweet? Really? 2. why the hell did you reach 3 slices back into the sandwich bread

  • This is getting boring. The same people constantly. Having said that,... Mmmmm French Toooooast....

  • What to do if u want French toast 1:get in the car 2:go to ihop 3:order French toast

  • tbh I like being in the middle the level 2 guy. I don't like being where im going to mess up all the time making this recipe cuz i don't wanna get sick, but i don't wanna wait 2 days to make and eat something

  • That's not custard, and why would you add Nutella, butter, syrup and sugar to an slice of brioche which had been dipped in egg and fried in butter?

  • THE NINJA 😎

  • I made myself one french toast after watching this😁

  • Omg that chocolate bread was gorgeous

  • If Lorenzo had march, I would buy it without a second thought

  • KETCHUP?!

  • I had to stop the video while i was screaming, waking everyone up in my house just to comment..... WHO IN THE RIGHT MIND USES KETCHUP ON FRENCH TOAST!!!!!!?? THERE IS NO GOD!!!

    • +Pans On Fire I guess.... But still lol

    • A lot of people, actually. I don't think she added any sugar so it's savory french toast.

  • the level 3 chef is always like when spongebob draws an entire head to draw a circle

  • Guys she put ketchup on it because she literally just made egg & toast 😂😂😂

  • Should be renamed The Roast of Emily.

  • Why are they making it sweet? Is it supposed to be sweet? Edit: What, fructose syrup in bread? Americans' sandwich bread is sweet? What is wrong with you guys? Scottish plain for me.

    • TheSpacecraftX Yes, it’s supposed to be sweet. The main characteristic is the custard which pancakes and waffles don’t possess. Most processed white breads are sweetened. However, we do have some grocery chains and brands that sell delicious bread that isn’t sweetened. Though it wouldn’t make very good French toast 😂

  • I swear man they are actually tryna embarrass emily

  • Ketchup? You monster!!

  • that orange is making me say no

  • nobody: Lorenzo: Muahahaha
