F&W Test Kitchen whiz Justin Chapple demos a genius trick for making mess-free pancakes.
[MUSIC] I am Justin Chapple from Food and Wine's Test Kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] I absolutely love pancakes but I hate the mess that they create so I developed a mad genius tip to solve this problem it uses a resealable freezer bag. First thing you are going to want to do is Take a dish and set the bag in it to give you some leverage when you start adding your ingredients. I have measured out my ingredients, but save the trouble, save the bowls, and go ahead and measure right into the bag. Give it a quick shake. [MUSIC] I'm just gonna whisk my egg to break it up. And then you get to have a little fun. Massage the pancakes. At this point, you're going to want to get all of your batter into one corner of the bag. We're not even going to need to dirty a spoon or a measuring cup to get it on our hot griddle. We're going to do it right out of the bag. Now we're gonna go ahead and just take some kitchen sheers and we're gonna snip off just the very tip. Just like that. And at this point, you get to pipe them. [MUSIC] Wow look at that [NOISE], pop them right into your plate. [NOISE] [MUSIC] Look at that. Fluffy, steaming pancakes, covered in maple syrup. [MUSIC] They are so light and fluffy. It feels like Sunday morning. [BLANK_AUDIO] Hi, I'm Anthony Gillio, food and wine expert and educator. People always ask me to pair wine with premium chocolate. So if I'm drinking a full bodied red, like a cabernet, I like to pair it with Lindt Excellence 70% cocoa. The refined bitterness of the dark chocolate is the perfect contrast to the wine's intense, ripe fruit, creating a delicious, memorable pairing.
