Episode 405: Binging with Babish
On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, how did a character on American political drama The West Wing, inspire a cinematically shot cooking show? Well, whatever the circumstance, Andrew Rea’s Binging With Babish YouTube channel has become a marvel; with over 5 million subscribers, Rae’s recipes are recreated (or created) in admiration of his two greatest passions: the moving picture and cooking. To that effect, he’s now made a BwB cookbook, cataloging some of movies and television’s greatest culinary scenes: Timpano from Big Night, Confit Byaldi from Ratatouille, Prison Gravy from Goodfellas, Buddy’s Pasta from Elf, and of course, Fried Green Tomatoes.
