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

  • Am 13 Jun 2019 veröffentlicht
  • Twix. They’ve been at the heart of a debate that goes back more than five decades. Lines have been drawn so intractable that friendships, relationships, even nations have been ruined. Who could forget the Great Twix Battle between the UK and Finland in 1984? No, we’re not speaking of the Left vs. Right debate. We’re talking about the Conflict of Classification that rages to this day. The age old debate: is Twix candy or cookie? Out of respect for those who came before, we will not take a position. Instead, join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Twix that can hopefully bring peace to this conflict.

    Claire (and anyone else who struggles with the right/left to clockwise/counter-clockwise conversion): Envision you're driving a car and someone tells you to turn left. The direction you'd turn the steering wheel is what you would consider "lefty loosey." Think of it that way.

    Claire is the only other person I’ve seen that shares my opinion on the “righty tighty” rhyme

  • Hawkface7
    Hawkface7 Vor 2 Tage

    CLAIRE! I used to have that exact same confusion with the lefty loosey righty tighty stuff! My boyfriend explained it to me.
    Say you are turning a circular knob, or opening a bottle, look at the TOP half of the knob/cap only! This is the part that goes left and right! And if you are looking at it from various angles, still look at the top half from your perspective.

      That explains the rhyme, but I’d like to argue that the rhyme doesn’t include that instruction and is thus wrong.

    36:24 the way they pulled the caramel apart and all cheered and ate basically the exact same way,
    This is what “boys will be boys” should be. It’s so endearing to see how happy that made Clair and how she smile in between them. Nice job 👍🏼
