Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Doritos | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

čas přidán 22. 05. 2019
Nacho cheese exists in two states: the melted cheese state and the powdered cheese state*. When it comes to the powdered cheese state, all pale in comparison to Nacho Cheese Doritos, continually perfected by science and consistently beloved by the masses since 1972. Join pastry chef Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to take Nacho Cheese Doritos to the next level and make them gourmet!

*The third state of nacho cheese, cheese sauce, is controversial in the nacho community and for our purposes we are disregarding it. For more reading, see the studies ‘Nachos in Nature’ (1983), ‘Dormant Doritos’ (1992), ‘The Quest for Queso’ (1999), ‘This Powdered Chip’ (2001) and ‘The Health Benefits of Nachos and the Search for Immortality’ (2007).

Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Doritos | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit


  • She should do the Avocado Dorito variation

  • Where I live we can't buy Doritos but when I were on vacation with my friend, he brought back a box full of Doritos. :D

  • I love Gabby so so much

  • Should have fried them twice.

  • Cola - equal mix Sarsaparilla fizzy drink and lemonade

  • The food science behind them is that they are made to addict you

  • Jelly beans, sour patch kids, or trolli gummy worms pls

  • How did the beige/ tan apron cause a moire effect??

  • alex and amiel are such a power dou i wanna see more of them together

  • If you don´t dab of the oil, the seasoning would adhear to the chip better and make a more uniformed taste..

  • The first 15 minutes are a great totopo tutorial.

  • Gourmet pizza rolls

  • Bedire this episode I had not had a single dorito..... now Im crying because the first bag that I ever bought is about to run out.

  • Claire is so dramatic. It's just chips, girl. There are people that are dying.

  • That beautiful person at 38:20... Does anyone know if she has a BF or is married? 😍🥰 Edit: noooooooooooo a ring 😭

  • Guacamole flavored Doritos were so good 😢

  • They should make Funyuns!

  • Plz do hot SLIM JIMS!!

  • Hi BA! Please make your videos less overexposed so we can have a good look at the food!

  • are amazing! I could watch you forever. I’m legit thinking about trying to do this

  • You could make these videos shorter...

  • Doritos are already gourmet!

  • Me, 1st minute in: girl, you better use MSG

  • What would have probably worked perfectly is letting them air dry for about 5 minutes then put them in the oven for 15-30 seconds at a high temperature and then frying them because when they are in the Frito Lays factory, when they aren't being baked or fried they are drying.

  • The overexposed video is driving me crazy 🤪😅

  • gourmet corn nuts

  • The citric acid and M.S.G. sounds yucky! I thought your creations were supposed to be gourmet ingredients. Can't you leave out the mind altering excito-toxin chemicals?

  • this video was so bright at times

  • WHAT KIND OF DONUTS IS CHRIS MAKING?!!!! Four days later he still at it?!!

  • The industry secret to doritos is nicotine

  • Gotta start with whole field corn to get that texture right. Dry masa is too fine a texture.

  • Please give Claire a permanent dehydration station! I hate seeing her lug that machine all around every episode!!

  • Gourmet Coke, like for claire to see

  • Once you have sweet and spicy there is no going back

  • Me: laying in bed in loads of pain with an awful headache and joints that hurt so bad. CS-tv: BA has new video. Me: aw it's not Clair. Goes to find Clair videos and finds this. Now I'm a little happier.

  • 27:50 dance while claire making break thrus :)

  • Can u make gourmet gardettos? Even tho they're already gourmet.

  • "This is your biggest challenge yet." *laughs in pop rock video*

  • Claire why did you never try it like the factory does it? Bake them first then 1 minute in the fryer?

  • You'd think the cameraman would understand what overexposure is.

  • can we like have a boom mic so I can hear what people who are not Claire are saying

  • “I found a patent on how to make the chips!” *completely ignores what the patent says*

  • oh no its el dorito

  • Claire, you made the wrong flavor- Taco Flavor are the BEST Doritos!!!!

  • Claire and Brad have a lot of chemistry. Sometimes it's like get a room.

  • We need some gourmet liquids up in here....;)

  • Doritos are baked with the seasoning in the chip dough, then the same seasoning is put in the chip post fry because the powder is considered part of the experience of eating a dorito.

  • I love that even BA chefs love Doritos

  • chris tested, adam approved

  • Hey what if Claire tries to make gourmet Coca Cola.!?

  • Claire's laugh at 26:51 lol I love it

  • I am now feeling the dread of realising I spend 46 minutes and 49 seconds watching someone try to make doritos

  • I feel like I’m the only one that doesn’t like Doritos

  • Maybe powder, and then bake in the oven, rather than vice versa.

  • Does anyone else loooove the way Claire and Chris phrase their thoughts? So freaking accurate but cool and elegant at the same time, I could listen to them all day long!

  • Claire looks like a good person to hug. Like some people dont look huggable. Claire looks huggable.

  • The best Doritos are the zesty cheese Doritos. Don’t @ me

  • Holy overexposed as a mofo video. eyes have been burned alive.

  • Clair's hair is dope

  • My favorite flavor of Doritos is the popping jalapeño 🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤 Leave your favorite in the comments

  • Every time a magnum ice cream commercial comes on during a ba video, with its jarring music and crunching noises, I feel like that guy in the black mirror episode whose room is tv screens, and he can’t skip unless he pays every single time, which is exactly what CS-tv does with their 15$ a month subscription charge.

  • Dorito flavor is sprayed on to the chip and I don’t know if that moisture has anything to do with the flavor hitting you all at once as opposed to the stages that your flavor powder had.

  • In the uk the red ones are chilli heatwave. The blue ones are cool original. The orange ones are tangy cheese x

  • Do Cheeto next

  • Now I will forever sniff my Doritos before I eat them

  • You having a snack while the rest of your group have an actual group study at the back 1:40

  • I like chips, but tbh I'm not a huge fan of doritos, except for ranch my god... ranch doritos are amazing, not a huge fan of every other flavour, atleast the ones I've tasted, some of them taste so similar I'm australian, and my favourite is smiths salt and vinegar chips

  • Romano¿? EXcuuuSE me

  • I feel like they fry them, season them, bake them, then season again.

  • coat them as soon as they get out of the oven... its the oil that makes the coating flavors marry together

  • It seems kind of weird at this point to call Claire a pastry chef. She’s an everything chef!

  • I'm surprised that Claire, being a professional chef, doesn't know that 'flavor' is a combination of 'taste' (tongue) and 'smell' (nose), and that a large portion, some scientific research shows somewhere between 50-90%, of 'flavor' is actually olfactory/smell. Most people know this intuitively based on how bland things 'taste' when one has a cold/stuffy nose, or even if you just pinch your nose while eating. Chris obviously understands this, and that is why he is a legendary 'super taster'.

  • i ate a whole bag of doritos in one sitting even though it has gluten in it, and honestly? even though the day after i had to call in sick, it was worth every little crumb of that forbidden fruit

  • Well this is a rabbit hole I never saw me following, I have zero interest in cooking and I can't stop watching these.

  • I can taste the dorito through the screen

  • Nobody: Chris: *intensely sniffs chip*

  • When did alex and claire start dating

  • MFW Claire choose nacho cheese over cool ranch (-_-)

  • The only thing missing was the food coloring to give it more of that artificial firey appearance. The eyes eat first!

  • Please do Reeses peanut butter cup..
