Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Combos | Bon Appétit
Bon Appétit
While we have a list of ingredients, nobody really knows how Combos are made. There is little to no information about Combos on the internet, which begs the question: what are they hiding? But not to worry, pastry chef Claire Saffitz is on the case! Join her as she attempts to unpack this mystery and make gourmet Combos!

    Why did I think Combos were bigger made out of a thicker cake tube that is filled with icing/frosting - (diameter is like 2/3 cake and 1/3 icing? and since they aren't, what the heck am I thinking of? Does it exist? **confused**

    I'm confused. Why was there some question about if it was okay to eat the baking-soda-not-washed-off-first cracker-tubes they sound like they think eating them might cause mild illness or something. Is there some question as to whether they're food-safe? Why would there be? Maybe I'm misinterpreting.

    Sodium bicarbonate decomposes to sodium carbonate, which is more alkaline. If the coating wasn't rinsed I think the NaCO3 might've reacted with the organic compounds in the dough to make sodium carbide derivatives with esters and carboxylic acids I guess.

    Ohh gheez I Love pizza flavored Combo’s. Nothing good for the environment nor biodiversity about All these palm oil ingredients God have mercy on the Biodiversity within Indonesia and Malaysia you should have either used a meat grinder to form the combo cylinders or maybe a pasta extruder baking soda only lowers your stomach acid ph and there is a consumption limit for 24 hours that’s acceptable as safe limits
