4 Levels of Chili: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

Pubblicato il 14 nov 2019
We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - an amateur, a home cook, and a professional - to make a pot of chili. Once each was simmered to perfection, we asked a food scientist to review their work. Whose chili earned top marks? Find out on this episode of 4 Levels.

4 Levels of Chili: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious


  • Lorenzo sounds and looks like a Filipino

  • Level 3 made something, but it wasn't chili

  • Chris can Make aNyThing He wants!!!😍 I'm Sure I Would ENJOY It. 😌

  • Level 3 failed as soon as he said seafood

  • I think that level 3 ninja got the wrong script. What was he on about with scallops and the crabs and orange peels.

  • Am I the only one that would tear up some seafood chili

  • I know chris did not just put seafood in chili

  • I would love to see an episode of the chefs on the same level compete against each other.

  • Lorenzo for the win

  • Emily: *didn’t use ketchup* Chris: “am a level 3 chef” Soooooooo wrong

  • am i the only one who hates lorenzo?

  • Emily? AND Lorenzo?! this is gonna be good

  • What a voice Lvl 3 has! Super soft and super cool somehow!

  • Güey. Hizo un caldo de mariscos and he called it chili. Qué pedo.

  • Texans everywhere are planning a revolt!

  • Emily is becoming too smart She’s using *logic*

  • Usually these are really good, but this time no, because this ain't chili. No fat white man saying "That's some good eat'n" Not to mention you're throwing beans and everything in it. Y'all missed all the seasonings and everything. Disliked.

  • Honestly, when Chris said seafood I lost interest

  • The lvl 1 dude in the alfredo video emily lvl 2 beth lvl 3 lorenzo lvl 4 frank lvl 5

  • Level 3 Chef: “You want to make sure you can taste the herbs” Also level 3 chef: im gonna put some cows milk cheese with some seafood

  • As a Grumpy Old Man, "We are going to sear the meat to lock in the juices" is wrong wrong wrong. Meat is basically strands of porous protein fibers, and will never 'Seal', only the bits at the contact surface seal. Ish. The juices continue to escape! Grumble Grumble Snarl....

  • Half beef half Italian sausage

  • I’m mad that the dude is making sea food. In what planet is he from that ain’t chilli

  • no fish...no fish....no fish!

  • Give Lorenzo his own cooking show you cowards

  • I love how the level 3 said “let’s add extra virgin” then he stared at the camera man and producers

  • I hope they try eat each others recipe

  • I always like lorenzo cause he is not so fancy

  • Lorenzo is probably my fav bc of his energy like he’s just chillin and doin his thing lmao I love it

  • I don’t even know what chili is anymore. Is it just any stew with beans!?

  • Emily I love you!

  • this mans didnt even kill the crab before he cuts it in half lol

  • Am I the only bothered by the fact that that guy just chopped a living crab in half?!?!

    • Im bothered that he said cojita cheese instead of cotija cheese 😂😂😂

  • No one literally no one The level 3 chef: Lets make seafood gumbo

  • Did any one see the crab move while he cut it

  • Level 3 chef said "cojita cheese" lol

  • The professional reminds me of Xavier naidoo

  • I like this lvl 4 not the litle girl

  • God this level 2 is annoying.

  • It's more coffers the level 1

  • He is a disrespecting the last name Scott

  • WOW! So many closed minds here! Cuisine is about exploring all the possibilities! I'd gladly have a bowl or two of that seafood chili. Go back to your regular boring food... 🤣

  • Task: make chili Chris: *inserts crab*

  • Lorenzo is a lvl 3 chef, Chris is basically a alien..

    • 😂😂😂 that part

  • " we asked a food scientist to review their work", Unknown Scientist, weird.

  • um none of them made real chili

  • I love Emily!!!

  • Level 3: seafood chili? Sorry, you're actually level 0

  • Were Frank he would not play us like this sea food is not chilli

  • Why carrots

  • lol why did they let the level 3 make “seafood chili”? which is basically gumbo... It’s so out of place. They should’ve required to be a meat chili, with beef or chicken

  • Level 0: Order a large chili from Wendy’s at the drive-thru. Level 0.5 : Open a can of Hormel’s Chili and heat it in a pot.

  • Need to get Gordon Ramsey on this show.

  • I love Chris on Epicurious

  • 2:57 lorenzo sounds like phineas omg

  • Lorenzo has this pedophilic vibe. 😅

  • Hi pop! 🙋‍♀️

  • I did not like Chef Chris on Top Chef. He always seems so pretentious. I was hoping to learn how to make a better chili, not Seafood Gumbo.

  • Beware cilantro because some people taste it as SOAP. Better to not use it unless you know, your fellow dinner companions do not have this gene.

  • The three level guy is OBAMA in disguise
