Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet M&M's | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

Nasıl Yapılır ve Stil

Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make gourmet M&M's. M&M's are available in just about every color known to man, but there is one color that is objectively the best: green. Scientists have puzzled over this curiosity since the inception of M&M's in 1941. MIT Professor of Cognitive Sciences Dr. Bertrand Mathers has dedicated the entirety of his postdoctoral studies to this conundrum, labeling it the Green M&M Dilemma. With the dedicated assistance of researcher Loretta Marshall, Mathers has finally unveiled his ultimate theory on the subject. “After more than fifty years of sleepless nights, proposed and rejected ideas and quite a few cavities,” Dr. Mathers read from a lectern at an August 15, 2019 press conference, “My life’s work has finally reached its culmination. I have found the solution to the Green M&M Dilemma.” Dr. Mathers, never one to skimp on dramatics, spun around to face a chalkboard covered by a red velvet curtain. Pulling it aside, he revealed his grand solution: ‘The color green is the best color, so therefore green M&M’s are the best M&M’s.’ A stunned silence in the crowd was quickly following by a standing ovation lasting over five minutes. Finally, as the applause died down, Dr. Mathers, red-cheeked and clutching a bottle of celebratory champagne, added: “And now we begin our studies into why blue M&M’s are definitely the next best M&M’s!”

    When coating with color, try mixing the white and color so it’s an opaque color instead of a see through color, covering some of the blemishes instead of the layering the two colors.

    I think after sugar-rolling in the salad-mixer you could have dissolved some of the layers with steam or lukewarm water, just enough melting action to smooth out that sugar, no use of chemicals either, could be done in batches, too.

    I know Claire is probably going to hate me for suggesting another chocolate challenge, but I feel like Terry’s chocolate orange could be a cool candy to tackle. What with the way it smacks n breaks apart.

    I actually really like the "fossilized" look. That super florescent, unnaturally bright even coating is something you'll likely only get in a factory, she did what she could I think. She also used higher quality ingredients and they're handmade, so they *are* gourmet-ed. This episode in particular seems rife with criticisms and I don't personally arlgree with most. Some episodes lend themselves better to truly gourmeting. Others can only go so far in improvement and so she gets stuck on replication. This was the latter

    This is how you make gourmet m&ms: don’t. Also, i hope this didnt ruin m&ms for her! Im so surprised This one was difficult, there is Definitely an easier way.
