How Bon Appétit's Claire Saffitz Gets It Done

  • Published on Sep 12, 2019
  • Claire Saffitz, host of Bon Appétit’s Gourmet Makes series, has gained internet notoriety for her dogged reverse-engineering of America’s favorite snacks. Her videos have garnered millions of views, and fans swoon over her now-iconic hair streak, relatable sighs of frustration, and pastry prowess.
    In the video above, Claire takes the Cut through a day in her hectic life-from shooting episodes at the Bon Appétit test kitchen to keeping her unruly, dairy-filled fridge organized.

    I love Claire so much for some many reasons and love the banter with Brad, the constructive criticism and praise from Chris, Carla always being supportive and down to eat anything and of course Cosmo the kid with no limit for sour things. If any of them were to leave I would be heartbroken.

    I can't help it, I love Claire...her ups and her downs.
    So sorry Claire, but that dress...retire it, give it to GoodWill (or not), make pot holders or dish towels from it...but never ever wear that dress again.
    Makes me want to seek a safe space and I don't believe in safe spaces.

    I never could put my finger on why my girlfriend loves you (I love your videos too but because you’re an amazing chef and everyone at BA is) but I think it’s because my girlfriend is a huge Type A personality and watching you stress, destresses her for some weird reason lmao.

      I think Brad's wife is called Penny. He's definitely said her name in a video and for some reason my brain thinks that the name he said was Penny.
