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

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.

  • Chris is such a good colleague to Claire and it’s so cute to see

  • I like to imagine if Claire had used the gelatin water mixture she messed up in the beginning, they would have turned out perfectly. Luckily we got to see how the darkest timeline played out.

  • Where is the green one....

  • Taffy pulling is easiest if you use a peg on the wall and loop it on the peg then stretch and loop again. You can get it pretty fast that way.

  • I think maybe if you went for more of a fruit-flavoured fudge recipe, but with coconut oil instead of butter, it'd have had a closer texture.

  • the starburst is probably one of the best examples of the placebo effect, I. had never heard of them being "juicy" until a year ago, I ate them but never heard of that part, they were actually juicy after I heard that but not before.

  • Y'all need to get Claire some tours for these places that make them, just to satisfy her curiosity about how the processes go for some of them.

  • brad has a really good vibe. like no matter how hard Claires challenges are, he comforts her and cheers her up
