    Could you please do vichyssoise soup, My grandmother used to make it when I was a kid!

    • Aaron Greenfield says:

      +ideamissing. Yeah, I don’t think Bruce Wayne appreciated the hard work Alfred Put in to making it. He probably slaved over it all day using fresh ingredients that he hand picked at a farmers market, when he could have just as easily brought out a bowl of Campbell’s, at least then Bruce wouldn’t spit it out!

    • Derpimus Maximus says:

      TBH, if he’s going to do a cold soup, it’s a mere 8 weeks until Gazpacho Soup Day, when we celebrate the downfall of the career of Arnold Judas Rimmer.
      In his mind, anyway. His general incompetence and smeghead-erry crippled it long before he asked for his gazpacho to be heated up.

      YES! Bonehead also deserves an episode!

    This all looks beautiful. Been here since the start to basics with babish and I love this series. Love that your teaching everyone even people who don’t believe they can’t cook and your showing anyone can do it if they set their mind to it. Thanks babish. Keep up the great work 😁❀

    “look for a roast with a good, healthy fat cap on top”
    Today I realised that I am in fact, a good piece of meat.

  13. Samaris Nychelle Stephens says:

    Thanks for the tips! Mmmm! Whomever your sharing the food with is Blessed πŸ˜‡

    Babish, please make a basics video about cooking meat tender in different ways. I got the flavors but my meat is tough. Thanks!

      Slow it down or pull it sooner.
      Get a good digital thermometer so you can tell exactly when to take it off the heat. And cooking foods too fast can make them tough as well. Try dropping the temp 50Β° and adding another 20ish minutes to the cook time.

    • Chris Offutt says:

      the best cooking technique will depend on the type of protein. Some things will do best low and slow while others can withstand hot and fast cooking. Having a good thermometer helps too since color is often a poor indicator of doneness since the internal temp is what we’re after. You can char the hell out of something and have it still be completely raw in the middle. It’s also important to properly preheat your pan since throwing cold meat into a cold pan will sap heat, prolong the cooking time, and make the center take longer to come up to temp which will dry out the outside. There’s also such a thing as too hot so you just have to be able to tell when something is in the Goldilocks zone if you’re using direct heat.

    Expect a nationwide shortage of pork loin later today.
