Binging with Babish: Macarons from The Mandalorian (ft. Jon Favreau!)

Avaldati 1 dets 2020
This week, the creator of The Mandalorian, the founding father of the MCU, the man/myth/legend himself, Jon Favreau joins us to discuss some recently-spotted blue macarons being snacked upon by The Child. What do they taste like? Are they an homage to blue milk? Can I get cast in the next Marvel movie, perhaps as a superhero with cooking powers? Only one way to find out.

Basics With Babish Website:


  • This is the way.

  • Ah yes, the most overrated cookies I ever ate.

  • “Pulling perfect Padawan Pastries” I love the alliteration

  • My OCD can't take the one missing macaroon on the tray.

  • What can u use if you are allergic to nuts (especially almonds)? I heard that rice flour can be used - you just need to add an extra sweet flavour.... like using maple syrup sugar or cinnamon? I have also heard that the almonds can be replaced with macadamia nuts? or white corn meal?

  • Help! Made both recipes. The wafer/simple version came out perfectly. The macarons, while delish, were more of a baked meringue bite than cookie. Follwed recipe & weights........suggestions?

  • this is so sweet

  • Now we just have to make some blue milk to drink with the blue cookies.

  • he looks like the guy from spider man

  • Macarons are my favorite! They look like “Tiffany blue” macarons

  • And don’t forget chef

  • This was the hardest recipe I've ever done. So worth it though

  • You see, I don’t like cooking so then why am I watching this at 2:00 am

  • Have you seen chef?

  • I just wanted to learn how to make macarons and color is hem blue, but now I know how make them as accurate as possible

  • macarons? I got a feeling a ladybug hinted at what food is next

  • Jon Favreu with a Disney shirt is next level branding

  • ❤️❤️❤️

  • chef

  • I preferred when you didnt see baish's face

  • My bet is Jon decides to go all out with some food scene in season 3 and calls Andrew himself to issue the challenge.

  • He looks like happy from iron man

  • Jon cares about the fans

  • I love macarons but I don't know that they were ever "rich." I mean they were calorie dense (being almond flour, sugar, egg whites and a sweet fruit or confection related paste/ buttercream), and delicious... and cost quite a bit each, but I could eat 12 of those in a go rather than 2 with tea if I wanted to. I mean I didn't...but I could...and I wouldn't throw up.

  • Make a cookie for Gina Carano now please....

  • Finally someone pronouncing Macaron as Macarón not Macar(ooo)n

  • Babish should have his own cameo on season 3

  • Adam wouldn't be happy

  • Your girlfriend is lucky

  • Amazing!

  • Ah yes the French Oreo

  • I like how Jon essentially said whatever simplified recipe he made would also be canon

  • This is the way

  • Mah name a Cheffff

  • We all know him for playing Happy

  • Wow that guy was super nice!

  • It very blue

  • They put that much thought into the cookies for the show?!

    • Their funded by a Disney budget

  • I'm not sure how I missed this video. That was certainly remarkable. Well, now Babish has something Chef John from Food Wishes doesn't have. It's not a competition but there still must be a scorecard somewhere.

  • Jon Favreau is one of the classiest men in Hollywood.

  • Broke: Macarons Woke: Padawan Pastries.

  • Aye its happy

  • I love that Jon is using the term "baby Yoda"!

  • 4:42 PronunciationManual moment

  • The easy replacement didn’t look like it at all

  • I can't believe he actually threw up on his show. XD

  • Jon reminds me of Tommy Bechtel from New Rockstars

  • If I weren't already subscribed, the macaron puke would have sold me over

  • is that a Mandalorian or mandolin glove in the mixer bowl reflection?


  • Mac row nage'. The mixing technique

  • Jon Favreau calls him Baby Yoda rather than 'The Child'... the internet once again proves to be too powerful

  • when u gonna do frog spawn

  • Adam Ragusea is currently screaming after watching this video.

  • Have you seen Chef?

  • Who here after watching Adam Regusa video to feel high off the whiplash?

  • I thought these were gonna be the ones from Spongebob

  • Jon isn't a bad man crush he brought back star wars, and also started the MCU.

  • Dav2d will agree with this.

  • This is my favorite video u ever done.

  • my namea chef

  • i have to say i legitimately appreciate that Jon took into consideration the cost of the cookies and the fact that normal working class people are going to be making these for their children.

  • Have you seen chef?

    • chef by jon favreau?!

  • They should put babbish in the background of an episode as a 4 armed Besalisk chef or something. Thatd be amazing.

  • I love that you always tributes others when you use their recipes!

  • I've only made them (3 times) using the Italian meringue method. Is there a noticeable difference in texture/taste?

  • is that happy hogan from marvel 0:15

  • What is the smell of insanity?

  • You could have used natural blue spirulina powder. It's actually healthy in comparison with regular food coloring.

  • It’s genuinely lovely that Jon Favreau is paying so much mind to the child audience of the show

  • If he’s making food from Jon Favero movies does that mean he has to make cheeseburgers from Iron Man?

  • i'll be watching closely for your season 3 cameo


  • I'd say the expensive version represents the actual prop, the cheap version represents the in-universe food that a kid had an entire sleeve of.

  • Home boy paying tribute to his Disney overlords with that shirt

  • This is so wholesome and lovely and filled with such love it made me cry.

  • Tried this myself. Macarons turned out great BUT the butter cream just tasted like sweetened butter. Didn’t end up putting it on the cookies cause it just didn’t taste right. Feel like I did something wrong, not sure

  • WOW, they look delicious

  • They look delicious. I have spoken.

  • These are excellent. Thanks Babish!

  • First recipe using metric units Me: *Happy noises* Second using cups: Me: *Confused noises*

  • Who made this and actually got it to look like a macaron?? My macarons represented my tears when they came out of the oven. (tears of sadness not happy).

  • The man directed the film that started the MCU and created The Mandalorian, what a genius.

  • Ironically, when you said "macawrong" that was probably the closest you got to pronunciation. Hahahahaha!

  • have you seen chef?

  • Perfect padawan pastry. Yum.

  • My man invited you on set! What a great guy!

  • I love how Jon even refers to Grogu as baby yoda

  • All I can see is that bluesy

  • Baby Yoda would approve....."Patu!"

  • I wanna make macarons but I own no fancy cookware. . .time to go break my arms mixing, wish me luck!

  • The illegal blue daily bat because dinghy incidentally flood pace a psychotic octopus. deserted, weary feature

  • Can you do some recipes from Netflix's Hilda? Sparrow Scout vegetable broth?

  • What about a roasted kowakian monkey-lizard???

  • Great recipe, I made these with a hand mixer and the tired delts were totally worth it, the macaron shells came out great! However, the delicious French buttercream recipe that is paired with it, I think should be halved. For 32ish macaron sandiwches I used about half of the buttercream, and dropped a little bit of citrus curd into the center of the buttercream dollops.

  • I'm having trouble getting the right color... What kind of food coloring did you use?

  • Macaronage

  • your cough at 4:42 blew out my speakers

  • I guess you can call him MANDOrons

  • have you seen chef?
