Basics With Babish Website:


  • Fun fact: the footage of me both tasting the dog food and the freeze-dried version was corrupted and had to be re-shot. But it did give me the opportunity to say to myself “good news everyone! You get to eat dog food again!”

    • "Better news! It's a suppository."

    • my hero!

    • If you want to make something a little less disgusting from Futurama, you can always recreate Farnsworth's diner order from "Roswell That Ends Well." A paella, two mutton pills(whatever those are), a croque monsieur, and a stein of mead.

    • Pizza Gyoza from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    • 100 lawyers clowns construction workers police officers librarians chefs and soldiers stand in line at a small lemonade stand, Babish joins as the 101st and asks the police offficer in front of him what everyone is waiting for. He says well it was supposed to be a inch line. Lots of love

  • Any responsible bachelor chow company would include enough fiber and vitamins to prevent the bachelors in question from devolving into scurvy and kidney disease. Not to mention meat sweats. Freeze-dry some vegetable matter into that.

  • Amazing!!! 🤩

  • Bro that's the most expensive bachelor chow ever sardines?

  • I would like to thank babish for introducing me to this awesome music.

  • I forgot he was making bachelor chow midway through

  • I don’t wanna be a killjoy but in futurerama the last tin of anchovies was eaten by fry so I don’t think anchovy paste is accurate

  • The way you describe eating dog food is so elegant

  • Fifth time asking for ichiraku ramen from Naruto backwards in order of your vids

  • ..... can someone make a start up that sells this? I would love some shelf stable meat and gravy Be like japan, more instant foods!

  • I would have thought freeze dried beef stroganoff. It's already a thing used in MREs and hiking meals, soooo. Well, it is human dog food. Do a high end freeze dried beef stroganoff.

  • You should sell that recipe to mountain House backpacking food company I'm sure they would love to take it off your hands.

  • When are you gonna collab with ordinary sausage???? Needs to happen

  • I kept hearing Pink Floyds Have a Cigar (Riding the Gravy Train) while you were doing this. What! No Spice Weasel?

  • If you ever do futurama again you should do the anchovies pizza!

  • Now With Flavor

  • Try poultry flavored cat food instead. It tastes much better than dog food... or so says my friend.

  • "For the next video I'm going to eat actual dog food." Okay, I wouldn't but it's your choice... *he picks the most horrific possible choice on the shelf* ANDREW NOOOOO!!!!

  • Lol i feel sorry for those dogs eating that

  • Anyone ever wondered how canned dog food tastes like?

  • Anything from Fishy Joe's!

  • Nice job

  • I feel bad for you…!

  • Putting anchovy’s in this!? Now that’s just a tease to them 😭

  • Im so jealous you have access to a freeze dryer. I would be freeze drying everything.

  • Babish isn't satisfied by angering the Italians, he wants to antagonise the French as well...

  • The dog food was only bad because you didn’t fill it with water.

  • One gaggle of fresh parsley. Is that a technical measure? 😀

  • I always imagined bachelor chow was like an MRE Goulash

  • We love a man that doesn't waste food

  • The man eats dog food 🤣 Can't say he doesm suffer for his art

  • You should do the breakfast from Disenchantment! ("all your favorites... poached dodo eggs, unicorn bacon, and waffles" (and whatever that mystery crystal fruit is...

  • More persistent begging for Office Space episode with Pizza Shooters, Shrimp Poppers, and Extreme Fajitas.

  • But how to make veggies and potatoes into dehydrated shelf stable kibble?

  • Rachel Ray makes dog food for humans.

  • ‘Environmental box’ Is delivered and has so much plastic ...thanks?

  • This is the first time dog food made my mouth water and it will never happen again hopefully

  • 单身狗粮 lol

  • This was incredibly impressive. Even for Babish.

  • Gonna point out that he used anchovies, which Bachelor Chow can't actually contain since anchovies are extinct in the Futurama time.

    • ​@marina kasparov • it's not for dogs

    • He was making a French dish that was dehydrated plus it's bachelor chow not dog chow

    • Also dogs are can’t eat onions (or garlic) either- makes them really sick

  • That was awesome

  • I don’t get how people cant handle dog food ,i once ate a piece and it tasted just fine i even went for another peice

  • "eco-friendly 100% recycle-able box"... sooo a normal cardboard box? lol

  • I want this process industrialized for mass production.

  • We don’t deserve you

  • Loving the Frasier wooden spatula!! Where did you get it?!

  • B U T C H E R B O X 😂

  • If it's any consolation dog food is better than cat food

  • The crazy airship specially mend because truck worryingly moor excluding a zealous golf. mammoth, painful ash

  • is no one going to mention he used anchovy paste they are extinct in the show this is inaccurate

  • i dont know. you said there are no human dog food equivalents. breakfast cereal

  • I cannot believe he added anchovy paste to the vegetables, that's an extinct animal -_-

  • every time i see this video i now think of this one tumbler post

  • If you personally made dog food for a dog food company I would buy it knowing it has real ingredients

  • Love your content, but I neeed to say this to your sponsor. If the box is in cardboard, but everything inside is plasic wrapped, plus it's meat, IT IS NOT ECO-FRIENDLY!!! Sry, needed to get it out.

  • I love futurama and have always wanted to eat some delicious bachelor chow! Great video

  • Man is literally living 2101...

  • BOOF!!!

  • Let's get this Bachelor Chow out onto a tray. NICE! Mmkay.

  • Aight so he basically made a high end MRE

  • Make the Candied Hot Dogs from The Misadventures of Flapjack!!!

  • I hope you washed out the kibble taste from the dog bowl.

  • you should do some of the food from saints row!

  • you made an mre

  • I want to make it know to everyone that does not know, onions and garlic are toxic to dogs.

  • Now you have to make popplers

  • Dog foo is cheap, tho, so il´ll stick to that

  • "eco friendly" sure jan w all that plastic wrapped meat

  • just cut a face into the popcorn shrimp....boom poplers

  • Are Andrew and Steve buying freezedriers to make MREs from the same company? Awesome..

  • Soooooo can you work with companies that make military MRE’s? Because we’re hurting for some chemical free flavor here

  • Ironically my agriculture class had to taste dog food and try to guess the ingredients

    • you know they list them on the back right?

  • If you sold this as babish chow, I'd buy it


  • You are insanely talented. And genius.

  • dude..... I would buy this.

  • This is what I always want to see happen in the real world

  • come on... we need Ed Sauce from Goodburger.

  • You NEED to sell this!!!

  • You should make fufu

  • i was freaked out about the new babish hair so I came here to calm myself down...

  • Babish:makes dog food for humans Me:ILL TAKE YOUR ENTIRE STOCK

  • Remember if you give this to your dogs DO NOT SEASON IT

  • Now I'll have something to snack on when my wife puts me in the dog house...

  • Very cool

  • Do the poplers!!!!!!!!!!

  • idk what i was expecting but im shocked you were actual able to make a show accurate human kibble

  • i'd argue that any flavor of chucky stew in a can is the equivalent of bachelor chow

  • I eat my dog's food sometimes. If you feed your pet something you refuse to eat your probably a bad owner.

  • That look like it could have been an MRE version let's put this out on a tray nice

  • I learn better vaculbary form this guy then my school teacher

  • That certainly has the look, but does it have the same function? The whole point of bachelor chow is that it has a full balance of all macro and micronutrients you need, so you can literally just eat that and nothing else. I suspect that this actually has almost everything, though it is lacking a lot of fiber. Maybe put some instant oats in there for that. I would love to see someone (a lot more qualified than me!) do a full breakdown of this dish and what it's missing to be true bachelor's chow in function (if not in looks).

  • The human equivalent of dog food is Huel

  • Bouncing this idea, have you considered a collab with SteveMRE? I'm actually very curious to hear what he has to say about the freezedried chow.

  • All hail the hypno toad

  • So you cloud say you made Woeuf bourguignon? *puts on sunglasses*

  • *Kosher Salt*

  • Shave the beard, Andrew

  • I crave a 1950's flavored candy from the Umbrella Academy. And maybe a whole episode on Chowder foods.

  • There is a dehydrated meat and veg food sold for dogs that is human safe
