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

  • に公開 2019/09/11
  • 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!”

    I would doubt it when someone says artificial food colorings are dangerous. It's a common place to promote chemophobia, mainly by people who want to sell other "natural" alternatives.

    So I went to visit Suriname and I ate something called krupuk and it didn't have that many ingredients so you should try and if you don't find I could send you a vid but you should really try because is delicious.

    The next Claire series needs to be a series where she travels first class to Europe, tasting the world's most amazing fine foods and wines in ultimate luxury settings were she is totally pampered.

    She deserves it.

    I know its an English biscuit but I think "Jammie Dodgers" could be fun to make. The little heart in them is really cute!

    The carnauba wax probably has a lot to do with not only making the m&m shiny but probably adds to the crisp hard outer shell. I think doing the color coat in the tumbler like the original is done would add to the depth of crispness.
