They made hollandaise so many times, also as challenges or parts of challenges that I have no idea how recipe is not burned into their souls by now.

The badges at the end aren't correct! You show that Barry and Jamie have the meringue badge. No one got that badge!

I think it’s be really fun if the sorted crew had to cook from, and maybe improve, weird 1950 American recipes. The era of miracle whip and jello

"smile Mike" omggg this literally triggered me. My hard felt like someone had wrapped a fist around it and clenched. So many times in my life I've been nervous and been being shredded apart then told to smile :( it hurts so much. I'm trying not to flipping cry I can't smile 😭😭😭

Thank you so much for making me feel so much better about my own cooking skills, I needed the ego boost! :-) I laughed so hard at them completely screwing up that meringue :-D

I think should perform the challenges first to establish a baseline, for reference, or do it at the end to point out where mistakes were made and stuff. Other than that, I'm loving the series.

10:23 What were you expecting Barry? A kitten? 😂
If there's a skills challenge. The chef should demonstrate first so we know how to compare.

There need to be rankings between Normal and Chef. There has to be something substantive between a white belt and a black.

Rewatching this series cause it is so so good. Also, it would be cool to see them work to earn a badge or two for teamwork. Maybe one where the three of them have to work together to create a full multi-course meal, or each of them has to prove themselves as like a sous chef or something with one of the current Sorted chefs?

I love making French meringue! I have always called it Cuban meringue though. One Christmas while I was in uni I made two dozen eggs’ worth - my family goes nuts for them, and they’re so inexpensive to make as a broke student. It’s not traditional or “proper” but it can be nice to take them a bit farther done, until they have a toasted marshmallow taste to them and are dry so they dissolve like candy floss on your tongue. I always overdo my dads batch a bit, at his request.

Oh, I love this! What a brilliant idea. Also, it's nice to see that while we all know how much the normals have improved to the point where we are calling them foodie home-cooks as much as normals, which is perhaps more apt, it's endearing to see they are the same normals we love to watch make mistakes. When put to the challenge, without method and recipe instructions to follow, well...they still aren't chefs. And isn't that fun :) But I can't wait to see more of these episodes.

if barry's meringue was in 5-star restaurant, you would say it's a genius
Zubiila 2 hónapja
I'm impressed by Berry. Like the result of the meringue was catastrophic, but besides that he truly shone today! Did not know so much knowledge was in his little head! Perhaps it's because he has a tendency to do weird things, that it overshadows how much cooking knowledge he has learnt. 🤔

I love that more than one person can earn the badge - you're competing to get it, but not at the cost of someone else being able to earn it. 🙂 I've had Hollandaise once, by accident, and never made it, so I would definitely have failed that challenge!! 😬😅

ohhhh a bit harder in covid but a "mentor' badge. so they each get a normal, the normal cooks something by themselves as a baseline and then b/j/m have to coach them through cooking it again, most improved as far as speed, accuracy, waste, taste etc wins.
Hez_am_i 2 hónapja
I think they need to recover from a disaster in some way. like getting part way through a recipe and be missing a key ingredient or something burnt blah blah, have to get it out for service in X time.

You guys put them under the pressure and make them do an actual service like in a food truck or something just a basic service cause that will be the ultimate chef test and as an extra you should ask them questions lol to distract them

I'd fail the knife skills! Hollandaise is the easiest sauce I've ever made. I used a blender but it's all the same theory. I use melted butter, 4 egg yolks, lemon juice and Dijon mustard. Put eggs, lemon and mustard in blender, melt butter. Then add the butter to the blender slowly whilst blending.
