4 Levels of Ice Cream Sundaes: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 17 June 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of an ice cream sundae. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which sundae was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: https://www.ice.edu/blog/banana-passionfruit-gelato-recipe

                                Level 1 either store bought stuff or some unethical crap

                                Level 2 homemade either classic or some family recipe

                                Level 3 either tries to be fancy than it needs to be or something else than the item is supposed to be

                                    The professional chef always seems to just want to show off their skills in creating something unexpected than really going with what the "assignment" is. Like passion fruit gelato is interesting, but it's not a sundae
