If you’re a fan of being in the kitchen, you’ll know that there’s nothing better than trying out a new recipe or even whipping up your own creation from scratch. But what about creating a version of a food you’ve known and loved for years? Not only is it sometimes cheaper than buying the real deal, but you also get the satisfaction of knowing you made it yourself! That’s precisely what this pastry chef was trying to do when she made her very own gourmet Pringles.
What are Pringles?
There’s a high chance that you’ve eaten these chips before because Pringles are popular across the whole world. These stackable snack chips are recognized by their shape, logo, packaging, and, of course, their taste. With a whole range of flavors to choose from, they have continued to fly off the shelves. In fact, Pringles were the fourth most popular brand of snack in 2012 alone. With so many chip brands to choose from, there’s no doubt that Pringles stand out from the crowd. It’s no wonder Claire Saffitz wanted to try and create her own…
Who is Claire Saffitz?
Claire Saffitz is a famous chef, video host, and recipe developer. After working for Bon Appetit Magazine as their Senior Food Editor for five years, she took the plunge and decided to become a freelance chef. While she usually specializes in pastry, she has branched out over the years and made her own versions of branded products. In January 2019, she decided to do just that with the popular chip.
How does she make her own gourmet Pringles?
It took Claire countless hours to understand and perfect her gourmet Pringle recipe. Through trial, error, and taste, she was able to make batch after batch of the chip snack and compare it to the original. She had to work on the aesthetic and the taste until she eventually managed to perfect both. While they will never be the same as the authentic Pringle, she has been able to create a recipe that makes it as thin and as crispy as the Pringles everyone knows and loves.
Although it’s easy to go to the store and buy products that you know you love, did you know that you can actually attempt to make them in your own kitchen? Claire Saffitz proved this when she made her own gourmet Pringles.
