    Hey Andrew, about pomme soufflees that you were testing out. I had to make so many of these in France at my first job. It was the amuse bouche at the two Michelin starred restaurant I worked at. If you want to try again at your own time, slice the potatoes much thinner (paper thin), and yes you use a cookie cutter. We used a 3-4 cm diameter round cookie cutter. But the trick with the puff is that you dust a THIN layer of potato starch, on one slice. And the other slice of potato, you put a thin and even layer of egg white. Place the potato (starch side down), on top of the potato with the egg white side, essentially sandwiching them together (egg white and starch inside, with potatoes being outside of the sandwich). BEFORE cutting it with a round cookie cutter. place some oil in a pot (about 3 cm or so) heat it to 140 degrees celsius, and place your round potato sandwiches inside, and shake while tiling the pan a bit. Once it starts to puff, tilt the pot, and you continue to baste the pomme souflee to evenly cook it, so that it is evenly crispy and doesn't deflate. Having a laser thermometer really helps. Hopefully you get to see this.

    “This recipe uses for a lot of potatoes so it appealed to me immediately” overlaid on top of footage of him peeling said potatoes is just 👌🏽

    Freakin Andrew man. I didn’t expect him to go from a buzzfeed puppet to a cook of this caliber

    He boiled them. He mashed them. But he did not stick them in a stew.

    Andrew sounds like a professor who knows his subject but is unsure if his audience is interested in it😅

    I love how Andrew describes the smallest details... like how the cake tester allows you to feel each layer of cooked potato! I couldn't help but smile at this point: THIS is someone who loves what he's doing.

    I love how Andrew shows how he fails sometimes. Makes me feel a lot better about my own cooking

    Andrew’s calm and centered attitude, focused yet laid back and humorous is very attractive. In addition to his aesthetic approach to plating and all of that in a beautiful kitchen with flowers - this guy is a catch ladies and gents and everyone who doesn’t define themselves through gender 💚

    It´s actually insane how much Andrew has improved with cooking. His approach to it, is, in my opinion the best way to become a really good cook.

    I appreciate so much, that you still included the pommes souffle, even though it wasn't a success. It's really interesting when you consider how little, a cooking show contains concept or even executionary fails, and i think it's really important to see! Great work man, this show is dope.

    I love that all these French recipes using the word pomme to indicate the potato-ness of the dish don’t use the rest of the name for potato, so when people think pomme they think potato instead of apple lmao
