Komentáře

  • At least she puts hot sauce instead of ketchup 😂🥫🌶

  • No one Level 3 chef I pick my egg from a egg tree on Neptune at the perfect time when the star b3-92 passes the center of the B3-43 galaxy and the universe grown for 3.1 nano second then is transferred to the kitchen I made out of wood all the way from the moon 58*9el3039 and then is treated with a special treatment on Jupiter

  • Nooo what happened to the scientist

  • nobody: level 3 chef: *i dont go to sleep until i know all my eggs are grow*

  • 0:27 who tf is that.....? that is not my usual gran sis

  • It's a scientific fact that lefty's cook better

  • GIVE LORENZO A SHOW

  • I don't know. I like how sophisticated the level 3 Chefs are. They used simple ingredients, I mean, not a huge variety, but very specific like Italian parsley, which I don't really care...BUT LORENZO HAS TO BE MY ALL TIME FAVORITE! Everything about him and his food man!

  • she said “UN-QUAIL” when talking about the eggs 😂 Ok no? I guess I’m the only one one who noticed lmao

  • Lorenzo is best 100% final answer.

  • Level 2 is always the best cause none wants to breed their own cow for level 3

  • Who's this food scientist

  • I always want outsiders to taste test and guess which is which and/or rate their favorite. Find out what the people really like! 😉

  • Who doesn’t add milk to their eggs??

  • I feel like I am a combination of all three when I cook

  • I think Emily put hot sauce on her omelete just because she likes hot sauce, not because it neutralises some of the salty taste from the salt..

  • i love the dramatic stick extension

  • Hi I'm faggy boy and I'm a level 4 chef. Why? Because I know the only way to cook a good omlette is to use the techniques of a level 100 chef; Jacques Pepin.

  • one had bacon. he's the winner.

  • Lazy way: Crack an egg into a microwaveable bowl and "cook" it in the microwave. Get that rubbery and light taste and add the bacon!I like the level 1 Omelet: Simple and easy. Level 2 maybe but I like the Chef's zeal. Level 3 Too much herbs.But I'm a scrambled eggs kind of a gal. Great vid!

  • Level 4: are you smart enough to piece it together and try your own hypotheses? Level 4 is the best!!!!! Copy the techniques from level 3. But make your own decisions using the information from level 4. Level 4 is gangster.

  • Level 3 omelet had my mouth watering

  • Surprisingly, I've seen worse omelets, and even Emily did well this time. One of the few times I'd say "Yes, I'll eat that" to something Emily's made.

  • I’m gonna add in a generous pinch of my fresh herbs... *_adds basically a handful_*

  • BUTTER! God I always expect someone to say margarine. Thank god not here.

  • I still wish the Scientist tried the food.

  • Level 2 chef is my fav

  • No one: Literally not a soul: Emily: so I found this cheese laying in my grandpas dog house-

  • These recipes are a little too elaborate. Delia Smith's excellent omelette recipe takes about 60 seconds: cs-tv.org/tv/video-AJ2uBYCVHik.html

  • The home cook version looks more appetising than the expert one

  • Anyone else stop watching immediately when the "scientist" comes on? No cook, no opinion.

  • 3:12

  • I NEED FRANK

  • Level 2 for me goat cheese tastes like a barn floor

  • CHANGE IT TO 3 LEVELS THE 4TH DON'T COUNT

  • Barb's omelet looks like that healthy version you never want to eat.

  • level 3 isnt looking delicious

  • That’s a young scientist, she must be very smart

  • I’ve lost all faith in Emily after the ketchup incident

  • nobody: *lorenzo: so im going to start with bacon*

  • raw vegetables make omelets soggy but not high moisture goat cheese?

  • Hi pls do subscribe also to my channel. western pinoy style of cooking. this will help you understand more about Filipino Cuisine combined with western culture. thank you

  • LORENZO NEEDS HIS OWN SHOW! I’ve said it in every video he’s been in in hopes SOMEONE from food network will notice

  • Just thought I know how to cook omlet then saw chefs cooking... panic mode 50% .... saw this science stuff we need to remember panic mode 100%..😅 well I concluded I don't know how to cook omlet

  • Where tf is the 4th level of omelet?

  • idk why but that food scientist pisses me off !

  • I’m sure level 3 tastes fine but it looks horrible compared to the other two.

  • Nobody: Frank: I birth and butcher my cows

  • Don't forget the BACON folks.

  • This Is the least generic level 3 chef ever

  • Lorenzo is a beast for level 2

  • Amazing BTW I can make all three omelettes🌟🌟

  • I Litterly Just Watched This Then Right After That We Had Omelet For Dinner

  • Nobody: Lorenzo: omg WOOOOOOOW!

  • food expert: Eggs are composed of two different parts me: testicles and pen*s? food expert: the egg white and the yolk

  • where is Rose??

  • 5:26 if you think that laugh is creepy, you should hear mine

  • Level 2 looks best, level 1 was OK too, but I really hated the level 3 one 😂

  • I HATE Lorenzo, get that guy outta here. His energy is annoying.

  • I hope lorenzo never runs out of recipes so we can see him forever

  • I loved Lorenzo's omelette 👌👌

  • Level 2 chief had the best looking one

  • Wheres the food expert?!!!

  • Leve 3

  • What is this, omletto de universtei ...... ??

  • Everytime I make an omelet it ends up as franken scrambled eggs.

  • Hi, I'm Marq and I'm a level 99 chef.

  • i prefer the chinese guy one

  • dad:son who do you want to be when you will be older me:i want to be lorenzo dad:why me:because il be happy

  • Wow I've been doing this for 30 years I gotta say the first 2 "chefs" really suck!

  • That's... not a Spanish onion.

  • Well... I guess I have been making omelettes (and yes that is the CORRECT spelling) wrong all this time: 1. Crack eggs into bowl 2. Remove shell from egg mixture because it is inevitable that some will get in (life hack: wet the tip of your fingers before trying to get the shell out, it makes it so much easier!!) 3. Add salt and lots of pepper, and a splash of milk (trust me) 4. Chop up fillings (usually all colours of capsicum) 5. Add in filling 6. Using small whisk, whisk everything together 7. Melt a small amount of butter in the pan 8. Pour in omelet mixture and let cook 9. When it is only slightly jiggly on the top, slide omelet out of the pan and onto plate making sure to fold it as you slide Eat!

  • im glad she didnt put ketchup in there

  • Why dose level 3 look so disgusting

  • Level 5: Nutritionist. Level 6: Holistic hipster gardener. Level 7: Food philosopher. Level 8: ... suggestions?

  • $4 $8 $28

  • Oh god MOIST omlet

  • I am a level suck my nuts i live in Japan and always have real wagyu in my fridge chef!

  • Gordon Ramsay has joined the chat

  • I love Lorenzo!!

  • This video made me really want an omelette

  • Level three omelet looks like dog sh#$

  • Hi I'm a level three chef, and a hard core Lesbion.

  • I just commented and my text was hijacked

  • But ultimately it's 11g protein per omlete.

  • I’m probably the only person here, but I wanna try Barb’s omelette

  • Hey Epicurious, I watched your 50 people try to make a pancake and thought that you could do a 4 levels of pankakes.. Anyway it's just a suggestion. I love this series so keep up the good work

  • But it's only three levels of chef... To say the science is the fourth is a sham, science isn't cooking... Not that it can be considered science either, as it's just discussing what's good with each one and cooking isn't a science, it's an art style and not because of the colours, but everything from presentation to taste palettes to even how it makes you feel

  • Nobody Absolutely nobody Level 3 Chef: At 3AM I like to grow my table because it’s more fresh

    • Then i make my own plates because Then i dont need to peel Then(?)

  • Lorenzo is the best

  • Level 3 is wrong on whisking, side to side is better .. its proven

  • Personally don't like my omelettes to taste like a bowl of potpourri. Worse the first thing in the morning I don't need exotic concoctions messing up my stomach.

  • is it only me that always think that the level 2 look the best?

  • I like that Barb’s omelet is vegetarian

  • Level 3 is pure unnecessary show off because nobody in their right mind would look for wild mushrooms and goat cheese for their breakfast omelette.

  • Finally a level 3 chef that doesnt say "I have been a professional chef for 4 years". at the beginning.

  • These videos are crap. There is almost nothing separating the cooks but ingredients and the top chef is pretentious. Most of the choices they make are based on personal taste and have nothing to do with food quality. The herb omellete has far too much herb in it. There is no way you can even taste the egg. The second guy would be fired from any breakfast place because he likes runny eggs. you know who doesn't like runny eggs? especially omelletes? Almost everyone. Also I am 99% sure the top chefs omelette is actually scrambled eggs. None of these actually look good and I would be upset getting that in a restaurant. The first one is fine as its a home chef. The second one is a mess as most of the ingredients were thrown on top for whatever reason. The third is scrambled herbs with egg. I only have a decade of experience but I have seen better omelettes at denny's

  • These are cool, but, I don't know how to *bold* letters in comments. Who knows?

  • Second one sounds the best. The "best" one probably tastes the worst. ha.

  • Emily's awesome, I bet it tasted great!
