We challenged chefs of three different skill levels – amateur John, home cook Heather, and professional chef Airis Johnson – to simmer up their best bowl of gumbo. Once each level of chef had ladled out their creation, we asked expert food scientist Rose to explain the choices each made along the way, breaking things down from a technical perspective. Which level of gumbo would you dip into first?
