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

  • Published on May 22, 2019
  • 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).

    You can never make Doritos without "flavor enhancer" aka MSG in the seasoning. That is why you can't put them down.

    Disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate are flavor enhancers like MSG. I bet Claire's chips would have tasted better if she'd included those ingredients.

    "I don't have the gene that makes you want to eat crunchy, salty, snacky things...unless it's a Dorito"
    And also Pringles and Ruffles which Claire says she could eat tons of as well 😂
