Dueling Dishes, Episode 2: Bûches de Noël
Enlarge Image Credit: Sam EricksonNot too long ago, the SAVEUR test kitchen was taken over by a full video crew for the shooting of our newest video show, a co-production with YouTube's HUNGRY channel: Dueling Dishes, the kind of culinary cooking show that we've always wanted to watch. In each episode, two seriously talented professional cooks face off with the same instructions: make the same dish, and make it really good. Despite their shared inspiration, the resulting plates of food are wildly, creatively different from one anotheróand as the chefs share their secrets and techniques, they're inspiring us in our home kitchens, as well.
In the second installment of the series, Emma Bengtsson of Aquavit pits her Swedish-inspired yule log against a traditional bûche de Noël with an American twist by Marc Aumont of The Modern. Whose bûche de Noël will take the cake? There's just one way to find out: watch the episode below.
