      So this is a recipe you made in 2017? But you’re “creating” it in 2019? I feel so used!

          They lost me when they abandoned the brussels sprouts recipe they developed just because Molly had developed the same one. This show is called making perfect but they apparently aren't actually trying to find the perfect side.

              And now everyone is like “wow claire sucks” bc she’s an assertive person and got paired with someone who isn’t on camera a lot or in the kitchen so she was probably just like “ok” just bc their personalities are different doesn’t make claire mean??

                      I think it's ironic that Claire, recreating things on Gourmet Makes, unknowingly NAILS Molly's recipe, which isnt the goal.

                        So far turkey scores a 10, mash runny potatoes a 0, corn bread stuffing with grounded corn nuts a 5, and this salad squash 4.5. I was expecting something a little more acetic to balance out the rich and buttery.. But, oh well. Clair is in her creative element... I think who you team up with really matters because your partner brings out the best in you, and even though Brad and Clair bicker like an old couple, they push each other to be their best. You should throw them together for Christmas or a Hannuka dinner.

                          I think Christina is the only level headed one throughout the 4 episodes that i watched. She wants to do something that us the normal people can follow a simple, practical and no fuzzy recipe (her words actually) NOT some weird or fancy bread or wine you never heard of.

                                  Out of all the sides lol why not mac and cheese? Green beans? Sweet potatoes? Brussel sprouts and salad do not scream Thanksgiving to me.😂

                                    Any one else really just want to make molly's Brussels for thanksgiving? They sounded awesome. And everyone has an Aunt Maggy (or 5) who will turn up her nose at "exotic" tropical lime flavors at the table.

                                                Christina is my goddamm hero and I vote for future videos of her without Claire. Claire (I love her still) is clearly the overachiever used to working alone or being in charge of a team.

                                                  You make a point to try and keep these homecook friendly but by the end of the video you're throwing in specially grown 898 squashes and pomegrante molasses. Sprouts dont look that pretty to me either. Id want the greens to be green and appetizing, not charred beyond recognition.

                                                                I'm worried that bon appetit it caving to sponsorships in a really negative way.

Then the liquid potatoes, then the whole Chris being steamrolled and now Christina. Maybe try a different type of series or edit a little better 😅

I've tried to finish the video twice but I really Claire is very skilled in her area as is Christina, however it was uncomfortable to see the lack of collaboration in this video. Thumbs down on this one.
