      So this is a recipe you made in 2017? But you’re “creating” it in 2019? I feel so used!

        Clarie: complains the entire making perfect pizza episode for being alone and getting the "hardest part"
        Also Claire: wrecked rude bossy attitude in a 'team'
        Love the test kitchen but never got the hype for her tbh

          i think it just further proves how great Emilies recipe was because they instinctively recreated it

                In this episode...
                - Ben Stein and his love of squash.
                - Communism 101: How to make a salad for Thanksgiving.

                Yeah that pretty much sums it up

                  For sprouts, my mom does them, cut in half, pan cooked with some apricot preserves and crushed pecans. Sweet and savory and oh so good. Super simple too. Good for people who hate sprouts, because it makes them very sweet and covers up any unpleasant taste sprouts can sometimes have.

                            "i don't need salad at thanksgiving" ... that's the voice of reason right there. the living embodiment of the fact that the art form of cooking can coexist with rational intellect

                              Hey, BA, how about a thinly shaved raw brussels sprouts salad with a dried cranberry vinaigrette? Or a raw/massaged kale salad with roasted sweet potatoes, pecans, dried cherries or cranberries with an orange vinaigrette?

                                      The fact that they made salad for Thanksgiving instead of mac and cheese triggers me endlessly. Sometimes I forget BA is a frou frou New York Magazine, but then they always find a way to remind me *cough*liquid mashed potatoes*cough*.

                                            Everybody is talking about their chemistry or whatever, but these are people not actors. They made what looks like great dishes, that’s a success in itself. I’ll have to try the Brussels sprout one, maybe it’ll change my mind on how dirt flavored they are!

                                              I love these videos. They are also a very interesting sociological experience to watch.

                                                Kinda pissed off at these sides. Lol. Where is the green bean casserole and the sweet potatoes?

                                                  Seeing all the comments/ criticism on claire in this video made me want to add on if anyone else has realised that her standards have dropped in gourmet makes? Like in recent episodes she didn't care as much as she did in the past about how accurate her gourmet versions are. Idk maybe she needs a break?

                                                    I was with Chris when he said he didn't need any lettuce with his Thanksgiving meal, but then he lost me when his dissed pomegranate. Lol.

                                                      At this point, I think the BA Test Kitchen Chefs revel in knowing no one will ever make their food. Building a side around an 898 squash? Which can't be bought at a store? It has to be bought as seeds and grown? Really? But your posting this video within 3 weeks of Thanksgiving, so there is no time to grow them even if you had the space and know how. I'm exasperated.

                                                        You could've had texture in the meal had y'all made mashed potatoes and not potato soup.

                                                                I have never in my life seen a salad like that. I'm sure it's great, but if I tried to serve that everyone would be asking 1) what is that 2) how do I serve/eat it

                                                                                            • Geoffrey Alan
