4 Levels of Fettuccine Alfredo: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Sep 25, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of Fettuccine Alfredo. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which Alfredo was the best?

    I was good with Frank's idea until he busted out the truffles and cheese wheel. I get he's a level 3 chef, but get out of here with that. Heck, Gordon Ramsay is more down to earth for the everyday man.

    Frank: I like fettuccine alfredo because it’s easy and doesn’t take a lot of ingredients.

    Also Frank: Makes his own pasta himself and FREAKING COOKS HIS ALFREDO IN A CHEESE WHEEL. A CHEESE. WHEEL.

    Food scientist: "alfredo" thing is a hoax and a historical misunderstanding, it doesn't exist in Italy (or rather it's just pasta with butter and pecorino) and you shouldn't be cooking that... OHMYGOD DID HE SAY GRANA PADANO?

    Chef making their own pasta? I can´t imagine such chef in the Czech republic. I am not so naive.

    Level 2: "now we are going to heavily salt this." Translation: now we are going to kill you all". For god´s sake, how much salt she put there? It was awful to even look at it! I don´t want to know about state of her heart. She won´t be alive for too long, if she is using salt like this and with my illness, it would probably kill me in really short time.

      Franchesca Mia
      fettuccine alfredo = butter, starch water and parmesan cheese
      carbonara = egg, black pepper, starch water, guanciale and pecorino cheese
