Paired with his light humor, soothing NPR vocal quality, and recipes re-created from TV shows, movies, and video games (ranging from Harry Potter's butterbeer and chocolate frogs to dire wolf bread from Game of Thrones to the huevos rancheros in Breaking Bad), YouTube cooking star Andrew Rea has generated quite the following—more than five million YouTube subscribers and counting. His appearance at Town Hall on October 31, as part of his cookbook tour for Binging with Babish: 100 Recipes Recreated from Your Favorite Movies and TV Shows, will mark his first official pilgrimage here. No food will actually be served, but he'll be presenting a slideshow of behind-the-scenes pics and other apparently goofy and tantalizing photos of dishes from the show. It's definitely worth attending, even for people who have no interest in learning how to make Homer Simpson's waffle-iron-destroying Patented Space Age Out-of-This-World Moon Waffles, or Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls, or the Legend of Zelda's Monster Cake, or even Frasier Crane's signature pomegranate and honey sauce. You'll get the chance to find out how somebody who, without any professional training in either cooking or video production, managed to quit their day job and make a living from their love of eating food and watching TV.
