      So this is a recipe you made in 2017? But you’re “creating” it in 2019? I feel so used!

      I would love to subscribe to the Magazine, but I don't have a credit card and BA site doesn't do Paypal or anything else for Germany T_T

    I live the way you two describe food. It makes me look at it in a different manner.

        Claire does not play well with others, which made me disappointed and frankly sad for Christina. Also, are we going to completely ignore the fact that nobody is ever going to make a radicchio salad with giant halves of squash. I'd be delegated to picking up the buns on the way to thanksgiving if I tried bringing that crap to the table.

          I want to make the brussel sprouts, but I wanted to ask the collective... how do you think bacon would taste added to it? I am intrigued by the date molasses but also I want bacon on my Thanksgiving veggie.

            Christina should speak up more.. I hate to stereotyping (typical Asian?), but maybe it's not Claire's fault to dominate her, 😅

                Why did I expect the ending to be like gourmet make where Claire goes through the recipe at the end

                          holy crap Claire talks a lot, this showed a different side of her which is interesting! I also feel like somehow Chris got more say in this video than Christine did?

                                                i think it just further proves how great Emilies recipe was because they instinctively recreated it

                                                      Yeah that pretty much sums it up

                                                        For sprouts, my mom does them, cut in half, pan cooked with some apricot preserves and crushed pecans. Sweet and savory and oh so good. Super simple too. Good for people who hate sprouts, because it makes them very sweet and covers up any unpleasant taste sprouts can sometimes have.

Like in recent episodes she didn't care as much as she did in the past about how accurate her gourmet versions are. Idk maybe she needs a break?

                                                                                          At this point, I think the BA Test Kitchen Chefs revel in knowing no one will ever make their food. Building a side around an 898 squash? Which can't be bought at a store? It has to be bought as seeds and grown? Really? But your posting this video within 3 weeks of Thanksgiving, so there is no time to grow them even if you had the space and know how. I'm exasperated.
