4 Levels of Breakfast Sandwiches: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - amateur Emily, home cook Lorenzo, and professional chef Frank from the Institute of Culinary Education - to wake up our taste buds with an egg breakfast sandwich. Once each of them had presented their creation, we asked food scientist Rose to weigh-in on their choices. Which one of these breakfast sandwiches are you going to recreate this weekend? After this episode of 4 Levels, you might make all three.

Check out the level 3 recipe on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/sausage-breakfast-sandwich

4 Levels of Breakfast Sandwiches: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious




  • Frank, I LOVE YOU, but the way you pronounce longganisa is just making me cringe. It's just long-ga-nee-sa, not long-gwa-nee-sa. HAHAHA as a Filipino I appreciate you A LOT okay but hearing you say that word wrong every time, I had to pause the video too. No hate okay, love you and your cooking
