    Level 1: just finished work or uni, has 4 minutes to make dinner for 4.

    Level 2. How to cook after taking half a key of columbian pure.

    Level 3. Pretensious but delicious.

    When she said "once I take them out of the box I crack them in half" and herd the sound of cracking spaghetti, I felt my entire being cracking with them.

    I don't really like milk in my meatballs either. I met a guy who said the way you make prison meatloaf was with extra milk and bread crumbs. And the imagery always stuck with me.

    Where's the wine thou? You can't have tomato sauce without large quantities of red wine.

    Would only ever make Lorenzo's dishes. The level 3s come in with this 40+ dollar dish every time. Lorenzo's look the best and seem to have reasonable ingredients (cost wise) for home cooking every day

    Why does everyone always bash the level 3 in these things lol. They usually have some good tips. Granted I wouldn't grind my own blend of meat, but making my own pasta sounds fun and easy. I also like the addition of the orange zest.

    Level 2 is that obnoxious guy at work who thinks he knows more about everything than he actually does. No one likes a guy like that.
