Pro chef Esther Choi, owner of Mŏkbar in New York and homecook Daniel are swapping ingredients and hitting the kitchen to make each other’s ramen recipes. We set Daniel up with all of the supplies he’d need to make Chef Esther’s luxurious $116 bowl of ramen while sending his more modest $11 worth of ingredients back the other direction. While Esther was using her expertise to elevate Daniel’s recipe, food scientist Rose dialed in to assist the homecook with a few questions he had along the way. Which one looks best to you?
