Top Chef's Marcel Vigneron Makes Dragon Breath Rice Krispie Treats for Jimmy Fallon (Video)
Top Chef's own resident molecular gastronomy twerp, Marcel Vigneron dropped in on Jimmy Fallon to plug his new cooking show Marcel's Quantum Kitchen, which premieres on SyFy tonight at 10:00 p.m.
The awesomeness comes when Marcel starts to make his own version of rice krispie treats for Jimmy. As Marcel starts with wild rice, Jimmy asks if they're worms (to be honest, they did look like mealworms for a second). In a heartbeat, Marcel has the rice puffed.
As Jimmy tries to figure out how the hell that happened, Marcel tells Jimmy to don protective eye gear because...here comes the liquid nitrogen!
After dunking the rice krispie treats in the -320 degree liquid, Marcel hands the treats out. As Jimmy and the band eat the krispie morsels, dragon smoke comes out of their noses and mouths. Completely rad and very Harry Potter-esque!
Watch Jimmy smoke (literally) after the jump.
