4 Levels of Spaghetti & Meatballs: Amateur to Food Scientist

We challenged chefs of three different levels – an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef – to make their versions of spaghetti & meatballs. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work.

What does a pro chef add to the meatball mix? Should you pour oil in your pasta water? When should you add a carrot or an orange or into your sauce? And what’s the Maillard Reaction? This fast-paced and highly informative Epicurious video shares all: 4 Levels of Spaghetti & Meatballs: Amateur to Food Scientist.
