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

  • Published on Jun 20, 2019
  • 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 Starburst.

    Are starbursts different in America? I never knew that you guys had different flavours to the starbursts in the UK - the flavours over here are lemon, lime, black current and strawberry. I get why you wouldn't have black current as the plant was illegal for a very long time in the USA as it's a vector for pine rust so the people aren't used to the flavour but what's wrong with lime that you swap it for apple?
