Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Cadbury Creme Eggs | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

Join pastry chef Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make gourmet Cadbury Creme Eggs. These are the only eggs that rabbits are known to lay (at least that’s what Cadbury commercials tell us). However, Claire will try to make these Easter classics without the aid of a bunny.

    I love how this really felt like an actual “Gourmet Makes” turning a regular food into a gourmet version, that’s awesome!

    Current Claire: Roll the tempered Chocolate tape

    Next time (after this whole quarantine is over and when you all come back to the test kitchen), Claire should try to recreate Goldfish crackers. I thinks it would be a fun experiment

    Oh, Claire…

    “why is the bunny clucking like a chicken” a sentence i never imagined her to say

    When Roald Dahl was a schoolboy, he and his classmates were used as taste testers for the Cadbury candy company. His boyhood obsession with their creations inspired him to create the character of Willy Wonka.

    Me on the first day of school: This is a shirt… that’s clean.

    Brad: “Best thing I’ve seen all week”

    Brad: “Yeah”
    Claire: “It’s Tuesday but thanks”

    • Sara Martinez says:

      Lmaoo I almost pissed myself I laughed so hard 😂😂😂 Brad and Claire need their own show

  15. paintingmonkey says:

    Ah, this is almost like my platonic ideal of a Gourmet Makes episode – rather than trying to replicate the original not-great-thing, taking it as a jumping-off point and instead creating something that actually seems like it would taste amazing because the recipe’s better, embracing it as a hand-crafted item rather than mass-produced, and is also totally aesthetically pleasing. Plus, bonus craft and construction! So great. (the almost is only because it’s only marginally got that experimental approach when Claire tries to adjust and calibrate with different recipes, but hey, sometimes the idea is just right the first time, what’s not to love?)

    Anyone tempering chocolate in BA kitchen: “Sohla!”

    • Micayla Birondo says:

      Lol. Sohla clearly doesn’t want to be the chocolate tempering person for the entire BA staff but she’s too nice to tell them she’s busy. 😂

  17. Gag Reflex says:

    Claire: I was afraid that there maybe would be some scorching or sticking on the side but there wasn’t even any of that.

    Camera man: Cuts back to the sticking on the side.

  18. Re Clinger says:

    The strange ‘bloom’ on the finished chocolate: you took eggs out of the dehydrator and put them in the fridge. Sounds like a recipe for condensation. So the condensated water mixed with the chocolate when filling, causing the ‘bloom’ look.

  19. Amanda Hanson says:

    The way Chris tastes things is everything.

    Also, we’re all bored in quarantine.
    Release some bloopers BA video producers. We know you got em.

  20. Matthew Wilson says:

    Us: “Man, the ‘rona sure has us stressed.”
    Claire: “May I offer you an egg in these trying times?”
