Binging With Babish has been one of the breakout web series of the past year, and host Andrew Rea is now sharing his work in literary form. On Tuesday, Rea took a quick break from his latest pop culture recipe to announce that his first cookbook, Eat What You Watch: A Cookbook for Movie Lovers, is now available for preorder.
Eat What You Watch will feature 40 recipes that recreate iconic food items from both famous films and cult favorites. On his channel, Rea has already cooked up many well-known silver screen eats, including Pulp Fiction’s Big Kahuna Burger and Ratatouille’s titular dish. His book will be entirely film-focused, even though his channel often features recipes from TV shows and other media. His latest video, in which he announces Eat What You Watch, features a collection of culinary fare adapted from the video game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Whether Eat What You Watch culls its content from films or TV shows is ultimately irrelevant; what’s important is its ability to convey Rea’s thorough, perfectionist cooking style as well as his dry, charming sense of humor. Those qualities have allowed Binging With Babish to rocket its way up the YouTube charts. Despite the fact that Rea only began posting his recipe videos in February 2016, he already has more than 1.2 million subscribers, and his channel has netted more than 75 million views thus far.
Eat What You Watch will become available on October 3. If you’re interested in pre-ordering it, its Amazon list price is $22.96 at the time of this post.
