Pro chef Esther Choi, owner of Mŏkbar in New York and home cook Lorenzo are swapping ingredients and hitting the kitchen. We set Lorenzo up with all of the supplies he’d need to make Chef Esther’s out-of-this-world $151 fried chicken sandwich while sending his more modest $19 worth of ingredients back the other direction. While Esther was working her magic, food scientist Rose dialed in to assist her old friend Lorenzo with a few questions he had along her way. Watch and find out whose chicken sandwich is worth clucking over.
