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

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).

      Madison Audrey it’s fairly common for people to make gourmet pop tarts, and I think the point of this series is to make unusual gourmet items. She’s easily kill it which is why she shouldn’t bc let’s be honest we’re all here to watch her struggle a little.
