It is with immense pleasure that I introduce you to one of my finest internet discoveries of the last few months.
I’m talking about a YouTube channel that I just can’t stop watching. And recommending. And talking about. I’m kind of obsessed.
Binging With Babish is a YouTube channel where a man called Andrew films easy-to-follow cooking how-to’s based on dishes and recipes from various movies and TV shows.
Kevin’s famous chilli from ‘The Office’? He’s done that.
The Big Kahuna burger from ‘Pulp Fiction’? He’s done that too.
The incredibly decadent ‘Eggs Woodhouse’ from ‘Archer’? He’s done that, and it was INTERNET COOKING VIDEO CONTENT at it’s finest.
Each episode uses the same format – after the super catchy intro, a clip plays from the movie/TV scene in question so as to to give viewers a refresh of the famous dish that’s about to be recreated.
Then the cooking begins. And it is so. Good. Every. Single. Time.
The production of each video is so well done. The filming is everything you’d want and need out of a cooking tutorial video and the editing is perfection. The continual commitment to using Ratatat as background music is a personal favourite aspect of mine and DON’T GET ME STARTED ON THE INTRO SONG from Frasier.
‘Hey baby I hear the blues a-callin’, tossed salads and scrambled eggs’ – I’m sorry but does a better intro song for a cooking channel even exist? It just doesn’t. It can’t.
(My boyfriend is all too aware of how often that song gets stuck in my head. Sorry, dude.)
Have a wander on over to BingingWithBabish’s channel and have yourself the best lazy afternoon ever. Just make sure you have good food in the fridge for when you’re done watching – otherwise it’s just sad.
You can thank me later.
