From one episode to the next, millions of viewers tune in to watch Claire experiment Cheetos from scratch(and nearly turn orange along the way); toil for days contriving homemade gushers; pulling sugar with the determination of the rock while keeping the secret to skittles….and, well, you know the rest.

Meanwhile every day around at 3 p.m., in coffee o’clock, there is a good chance Claire will be out setting something absolutely fascinating in the test kitchen. One week it could be her moist and savory swirled tahini tea cake(if ever there was a loaf meant for a cup of freshly brewed coffee), the next her gleaming, crispy-yet-fluffy focaccia.

Whatever she seems to be broiling, she is clearly the reason her fans are carrying a few extra pounds these days.

Unlike most of the home cooks, Claire instead takes a practical, nearly manic approach to her craft. She will go through a recipe again and again and then one more time, just for good measure.

On a recent interview with Bon appetite, she mentioned about her easy sheet with chocolate-cream cheese frosting. As for saying, this is just a typical from-scratch birthday cake.

But Claire, in turn, bemused her viewers when she coined the term mechanical leaving in this very traditional pastry; the term which follows how certain ingredients are hygroscopic and how gluten comprises ‘glutenin and gliadin’.

Nevertheless, her seemingly unusual approach in confectionary one way or another always manages to spill out  ‘pudding and heaven’ from her fellow show attendee to her staffs alike.
