We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - an amateur, a home cook, and a professional - to make a pot of chili. Once each was simmered to perfection, we asked a food scientist to review their work. Whose chili earned top marks? Find out on this episode of 4 Levels.

Check out the level 3 recipe on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/seafood-white-bean-chilli-recipe

I think that level 3 ninja got the wrong script. What was he on about with scallops and the crabs and orange peels.

Usually these are really good, but this time no, because this ain't chili. No fat white man saying "That's some good eat'n" Not to mention you're throwing beans and everything in it. Y'all missed all the seasonings and everything. Disliked.

As a Grumpy Old Man, "We are going to sear the meat to lock in the juices" is wrong wrong wrong. Meat is basically strands of porous protein fibers, and will never 'Seal', only the bits at the contact surface seal. Ish. The juices continue to escape! Grumble Grumble Snarl....

lol why did they let the level 3 make “seafood chili”? which is basically gumbo... It’s so out of place. They should’ve required to be a meat chili, with beef or chicken

I did not like Chef Chris on Top Chef. He always seems so pretentious. I was hoping to learn how to make a better chili, not Seafood Gumbo.

Beware cilantro because some people taste it as SOAP. Better to not use it unless you know, your fellow dinner companions do not have this gene.
