    Pro chef Esther Choi, owner of Mŏkbar in New York and home cook Gabrielle are swapping ingredients and hitting the kitchen to make each other’s crab fried rice recipes. We set Gabrielle up with all of the supplies she’d need to make Chef Esther’s decadent $242 creation while sending a modest $13 worth of ingredients back the other way. While Esther was using her expertise to elevate Gabrielle’s recipe, food scientist Rose dialed in to assist our home cook with a few questions he had along the way. Which one looks best to you?

I would watch a series of Esther just teaching us how to utilize most of the ingredients we have at home

I love that Esther uses EVERYTHING. It's so creative how she repurposes things most people would discard.

Holy moly just tried this recipe today following the $13 ingredients (lol!).. except I added bok choy, pineapple, and carrots as well. And the store didn’t have head-on shrimp, so after boiling the shrimp shells for the stock, I took those same shells and fried them in oil and used them instead of shrimp heads for the shrimp paste… this was the most incredible fried rice I’ve had at home and it truly felt restaurant quality… maximizing flavor and using every part of every ingredient made such a huge difference…. Thank you!!! Mind blown, life changed!

Gabi is great, she got a really hard task, I wouldn't know how to deal with that crab. Esther is awesome, appreciate the knowledge she dropped. Nice video.

Watching Chef Esther cook was like attending a high end culinary school...this was a learning experience like no other....if she can do that with such humble ingredients in such a short amount of time...i can not even begin to imagine her creative prowess... am a FAN!

Oh my God, seeing Esther and Gabrielle together at the end made me cry. Just the reactions to each other's dishes... it was beautiful. I don't know why this is making me so emotional. Two amazingly talented women<3

you could almost lock Esther in a room and throw away the key, with but a few simple ingredients, come back in a week, and expect that she turned said room and ingredients into a full on restaurant.

Auntie Esther just taught me some valuable tricks to utilize every thing to its full potential. Thank you so much. Can't wait to incorporate those great cooking skills into my dish's for full on flavor. Gabi made the whole dish look delicious, but the end product was a true work of art. Both looks delicious

This is such a Feel Good video. Gabi looks like she's having such a wonderful time cooking and her smile is energy is contagious. Esther's cooking is so informational and efficient while her charisma really shine through. And the part where they just have a great time tasting and complementing each other's dish at the end is a fitting end to this video. Such a wonderful experience this was.

I love how this video is made. It shows us that you can have basic ingredients and accessories, but if you have some skills and knowledge, you can still make awesome food.

Esther is the perfect chef for these swap episodes because you know she’s really gonna maximize the usual basic ingredients and elevate them, which could be a very educational experience for us viewers. I can’t appreciate as much the other chefs who bring in a couple more ingredients just so they could do their own interpretation. I find it cheating in a way. Imo, what Esther does in this swap series stays true to the challenge and that for me shows how skilled, talented, and knowledgeable she really is as a chef.

They are both so engaging, they deserve their own TV shows with swapped ingredients
