  • Published on: 07 December 2018
  • We're giving 180º a try with this one, so this is best viewed in a VR headset, cardboard or mobile! Make sure to increase the quality setting for the best experience!
    Padma Lakshmi visits the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen to make very fancy scrambled eggs with champagne with Carla. Can she follow along using verbal instructions only?

    Padma Lakshmi is the host and executive producer of Bravo's Top Chef (Thursdays at 9pm ET), the author of Love, Loss, and What We Ate: A Memoir, an ambassador for the ACLU, and a visiting scholar at MIT. She is also partnering with Kellogg's to judge this year's Kellogg’s Holiday Baking Challenge.

    I didn't think there was anything wrong with the video. Did the channel change the format? I didn't notice anything as "off."

    As a mobile watcher this VR thing was super annoying. There should be a way to toggle it to normal video mode.

    You have skilled videographers who can take advantage of all the gear the channel has been using up till now—use them!They can compose the shots far better than we ever can by panning around a funny wide angle window.(Not mentioning the fact that the optics of conventional lenses are better altogether!)It’s awesome that BA is so willing to try new and weird things, but this particular experiment hasn’t turned out well.

    If you're watching on a Boring Regular Computer, I found actually REDUCING the quality setting stopped the video lag. Looking forward to revisiting this when I get my bionic cyborg implant heads-up-display upgrade

    Okay the concept is neat because you can look at the entire table. But it lacks the finesse in the editing and timing. It also isn’t accessible to many people. I know phone VR headsets are cheap but I really don’t need one sitting around my home.

    Everyone asking for a non VR version, just don't push the button? I watched it as a regular video by not clicking on the button, don't get what the problem is

    If you are doing a vr thing you need to not do cut edits and just let the person control wh at they are looking at...also get a camera that can film in vr better than a potato.

    I actually enjoyed the VR but that's because I have a VR headset. I felt like I was in the BA test kitchen. I would agree and say, that if you upload two different versions, that would be pretty cool.

    Yo! To all the people complaining about the VR: watch in a chrome tab. If you watch the video on Chrome, not the official app, the video isn't in VR. The cuts are quick and a little bit annoying, but the overall video quality is good. If you ignore the lighting of course.I don't know how this will work on a PC, but if you have a phone any browser that isn't the official app with avoid the VR format.

    Why is it that all the best chefs never can seem to make a decent scrambled egg? Typical French approach that unnecessarily overcomplicates a simple dish.
