Binging with Babish: Ben Wyatt’s Calzones from Parks & Rec

Binging with Babish: Ben Wyatt’s Calzones from Parks & Rec

Ben Wyatt: mayor of Ice Town, occasional Batman impersonator, and unwavering disciple of the calzone. Today we celebrate Ben’s fandom with a trio of his most notorious pizza pocket projects: calzone-shaped apple pie, (poisonous) mini calzones, and the low-cal-calzone-zone. Pizza is better as a sandwich, isn’t it?

    This brought back a memory of a very obscure TV show called “Ed” about a guy who owned a bowling alley. Anyway, one episode one of the cooks had an idea of deep frying a whole apple pie instead of a calzone shaped one. Always wanted to try it, but I know it maybe a little dangerous since I don’t have a big enough deep fryer. Haha!

    Babish: “roll out to about 4-ish centimetres thick”

    I think he definitely meant millimeters. ‘Murica

    You should do “Ron’s Paunch Burger.” Ann tells Ron in one episode that needs more potassium. Ron is so opposed to plant-based food he physically can’t eat the banana. He smashes it in a burger to eat it.

    So…. banana burgers?

    Friend: Why do you like calzones? They’re only a quesadilla pizza.

    Me: You made my point.

    Andrew, it’s “In twain”. “Into twain” is semantically and grammatically incorrect – it’s like saying “You’re are”.

    “This lid from my protein powder will do nicely.”

    Weird flex but okay.

  8. The Playlist Guy says:

    *me remembering the previous episode making calzones*
    Me: Hey I’ve seen this one!
    Babish: What are you talking about? It’s brand new!

    Your next line will be: “I’m hyped for that JoJo episode.”

    7:40 “about four-ish centimeters thick.” That’s almost 2 inches. Pretty sure this is supposed to say milimeters.

    Babish: No JoJo episode
    Esidisi: Your attempt to exploit my anger is admirable, but I cannot be angered

    “burnished and browned and … b’done”

    I come for the cooking skill but I stay for the alliteration.

    I actually keep a wedge of cheese in my freezer at all times, with a micorplane style grater you are always set to bless whatever food you want 🙂
    Works especially well with something like young gouda or other cheese usually too soft and smeary to grate. Just don’t freeze parm or pecorino xD

    He doesn’t want to show us Jojo’s recipes because we would see his Pearl Jam.

    • Kaiser Sosebee says:

      He’s showed us his pearl jam before. You judt wouldnt know because your not a stand user

    • Alexis C. says:

      Is he talking about anime jojos bizarre or a different jojo?

    • Kaiser Sosebee says:

      @Alexis C. i can only think of a few foods in jojo’s bizarre adventure. Maybe he’s talking about jojo rabbit. But it could be the strawberry cake from vento aureo

    • Ryan Cooper says:

      Kaiser Sosebee it’s the Italian diner from the fourth part. It’s a four course meal though so I wonder how he’s gonna do that

    • Flypotato9 says:

      @Alexis C. there’s only 2 jojo in the internet… jojo’s bizarre adventure and jojo siwa….I doubt it’s not about the adventure i’d say
