We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - amateur Stephen, home cook Joseph, and professional chef Saúl Montiel from Cantina Rooftop- to make a warm and cheesy cacio e pepe. Once each level of chef had presented their creations, we asked expert foodscientist Rose to explain the choices each made along the way. Which cacio e pepe makes you say “molto bene?”
