$226 vs $18 Roast Chicken Dinner: Pro Chef & Home Cook Swap Ingredients | Epicurious

Professional chef Lish Steiling and home cook Lorenzo are swapping recipes and hitting the kitchen! We set Lorenzo up with the finest ingredients from chef Lish’s kitchen along with her recipe for an unforgettable $226 roast chicken. Always up for a challenge, Lorenzo consulted with food scientist Rose for a quick pregame to help him get started. Meanwhile over with chef Lish, a much more typical $18 worth of ingredients were being finessed up to gourmet status via sheer skill and professional know-how. Which one looks best to you?

  • That looks amazing! I am so hungry now! Did the Pro Chef imply that the chicken she gets does NOT have the pink liquid that is always present with raw chicken? If so, where could I get the chicken she gets. That liquid is always so gross.

  • Take away the pretentious balsamic vinegar and the cost is cut by more then half and get a regular chicken and the fancy potatoes and the cost is about 80 dollars this is the perfect example of trying to be fancy for the sake of being fancy without adding to the actual dish
