An Iron Chef America alum just proved some Starbucks items can be turned into fine dining.

In a three-minute TikTok with over 17.1 million views, Canadian celebrity chef Susur Lee turned a Starbucks order from his son Jet Bent-Lee into a gourmet dessert.

Bent-Lee bought some Starbucks staples – a caramel frappuccino, espresso shots, and cake pops – and asked his father to make him a gourmet.

Lee has conjured up an imaginative dessert from all 3 Starbucks ingredients

For his gourmet dish with the “three Michelin stars” Lee has created an upscale cake.

First he tried the ingredients his son had got him from Starbucks. Lee said the cake pop was like “raw batter” and the frappucino was “sweet”.

He decided to make an apple-based dessert and started cutting fruit and removing the coating from any cake pops that he was going to melt.

Cake pop coating and espresso were used in the caramel sauce, and Lee turned crushed cake pop centers into a pie crust.

He also used espresso and the frappuccino base to create a creamy reduction, and used this and the drink’s whipped cream to complete the caramel sauce – all without measuring anything.

The last dish was served with flaming rum, cinnamon, sugar and a drizzle with caramel sauce. When the couple tried the cake, they gave it a thumbs up.

You can also see the full cooking process in a 12-minute video on Bent-Lee’s YouTube channel.

Bent-Lee has quite a few from his father who turn fast food orders into gourmet masterpieces

Bent-Lee has been putting his father’s kitchen expertise to the test for months by challenging him to turn items from popular fast food chains like Taco Bell, Panda Express, and Chick-Fil-A into gourmet dishes.

“My dad probably eats fast food every two years, so he is very unfamiliar with all of these fast food chains, so I knew his response would be priceless,” Bent-Lee told Insider on the show.

“I think the reason people love these videos so much is because of my father’s authenticity, experience and creative ability to recreate these common household fast food dishes.”
