I'm Justin Chapel from Food and Wine test and I'm
at the Food and Wine class hitting up my favorite
chefs for their mad genius tips. That is mad genius.
The beautiful Gale Simmons, hello. I know you love to
entertain, I know you love to be outdoors, and I've
got to ask, do you have a mad genius tip
for me for mad genius cooking. You know what, Justin,
I do. Here's what I love to make in the
summer time because I love desert on the grill. I
take a banana, peel back a panel, stuff it with
marshmallows, chocolate chips wrap it in foil, throw it on
the grill Instant banana s'mores. Oh my gosh, that is
amazing and I cannot wait to get back to the
test kitchen and try it myself. [MUSIC] I adore s'mores,
and I cannot wait to try Gail Simmons' tips for
making the banana version. And I have a trick for
making it indoors all year round. Here's how you're gonna
do it. Take a banana and peel off one panel
of the peel. And peel it all the way to
the end, but you wanna leave the peel connected. Then
take a small teaspoon like this, and you're gonna scoop
out about a quarter-inch of the banana. Just like that.
You're gonna lay it on a piece of foil. We're
gonna fill it with fluffy marshmallows, pile it right in
there. Chocolate chips, I like to use mini but you
can use regular. And because I love crunch, I'm gonna
add some chopped pecans. Love filling my banana. Then take
your banana peel and lay it right on top And
then wrap the banana up tightly in foil. We have
our awesome little banana boat. We're going to pop this
in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes. I
think my s'more is ready. [MUSIC] Here you go, the
moment of truth. [MUSIC] It's melty and it's gooey, this
is so exciting. And now, we get to dig in.
[MUSIC] That is an amazing smore. And I didn't even
need a campfire.
