Pastry Chef Attempts To Make Gourmet Kit Kats | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 02 May 2018
  • Some nibble away at the chocolate shell first; others may split the wafers apart before eating. They may have their preferences, but what what they may not know is their routines help to reverse engineer what it takes to make one in the first place. Claire Saffitz is up to the challenge to make Gourmet Kit Kats!

                          My fav part out of all of gourmet makes is at @8:35 when Brad takes a long, hard look at the burnt wafer and says “it’s good!”

                            My friend mispronounced crisp wafer as crisp waifu.
                            I do like my waifus crisp

                              Probably my favorite Brad-Claire interaction in all the videos so far was in this one, the Rice Krispies rebuff:

                              Brad: That is NOT a Kit-Kat.
                              Claire: I know it's not a... Obvious it's not a Kit-Kat. It's not, like, 'Here, I... made a Kit-Kat'... *offended*

                                    I would love to see Claire re-try this one now that she's had so much experience. I bet she'd find it a load easier.

                                    Or, I'd love to see Brad try it while Claire watches without being able to give hints

                                            Kit Kat's in the U.S must be sweeter than the ones we have in Canada.

                                                I don't know why but I liked these episodes more because Claire seemed more intrigued and curious. Now it just seems like she's being forced and unhappy.

                                                    So if one of the ingredients in kit Kats is crushed-up pieces of kit Kats how did the first kit Kats ever get made if there was no kit Kats ever laying around to put them into kit Kats???🤔. Holy Krazy kats right a real catch 22

"I want a title of professional pastry chef, youtube shows, glowing press, but I have no interest or willingness to master chocolate tempering. Even IF there are a zillion articles and videos online to teach me - which I don't mind using for ALL MY OTHER 'Gourmet Makes' stuff. Just not tempering chocolate."
