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

What does your favorite Starburst say about you?
Red: Life is about power and you will stop at nothing to exert your influence over others. Be careful, because red Starbursts are in short supply and pursuing them is a lonely path.
Pink: Compassion is at the center of your life. Make sure that you’re not too generous or you’ll end up with no pink Starbursts for yourself.
Orange: This flavor is not bad. If you like it, that’s good.
Yellow: Some people call you quirky, others say you’re eccentric. You go through life trying to fit the square piece into the round hole. But that’s ok, because there will always be lots of yellow Starbursts for you to eat.

At the end of the day, they’re all delicious. Join pastry chef Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make gourmet Starbursts.

  1. This has got to be one of the best episode not because of the food part but because of the personality. Brad and Claire are always great together and when they got every one to make the taffy that was so damn good.

  2. Oh poor Claire! Next episode, bake an egg and go celebrate a week off. You deserve it! This must be absolute torture xD

  3. Has Amiel always kinda looked like a young Elton John or is it just with those shades in the beginning?

  4. I know Claire is slowly losing all hope doing these, but the episodes just keep getting better.

  5. Damnit! Another Joule commercial from Chef Steps?!
