Pro chef Esther Choi, owner of Mŏkbar in New York and homecook Gabrielle are swapping ingredients and hitting the kitchen to make each other’s crab friedrice recipes. We set Gabrielle up with all of the supplies she’d need to make Chef Esther’s decadent $242 creation while sending a modest $13 worth of ingredients back the other way. While Esther was using her expertise to elevate Gabrielle’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?
