4 Levels of Breakfast Sandwich: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - amateur Emily, home cook Lorenzo, and professional chef Frank from the Institute of Culinary Education - to wake up our taste buds with a breakfast sandwich. Once each of them had presented their creation, we asked food scientist Rose to weigh-in on their choices. Which one of these breakfast sandwiches are you going to recreate this weekend? After this episode of 4 Levels, you might make all three.

Check out the level 3 recipe on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/sausage-breakfast-sandwich

    Longaniza! I love longaniza, I’m Filipino, and my favorite breakfast is longsilog(longaniza sausage with a fried egg and garlic fried rice). I will definitely try it in a breakfast sandwich with Lorenzo’s recipe!

    Rose made the single best point here at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1105">18:25</a>. Though it's smaller, you can easily get the entire height of Frank's sandwich in your mouth to get all the flavor the sandwich has to offer in each bite. Emily's is a little bigger but stays to that point as well. Lorenzo's sandwich is a disaster. I'm sure it tastes great but it'll make a huge mess with each bite and you'll have to finish it off with a fork.

    Emily is that part of when you’re first getting into cooking when you’re just cooking the basics and buying he more complicated ingredients, like the brear Lorenzo is that part of getting into cooking’s where you’re getting good at it now and are just going wild Frank is that part of being in cooking when you’ve mastered it, and now you’ve come full circle and are cooking the basics, but also creating every single part of your dish from scratch
