Binging with Babish: Beignets from Chef (and Princess and the Frog)

  • Published on Aug 7, 2018
  • This isn't the first time we've taken a look at the foods featured in Jon Favreau's food-film masterclass, Chef. In fact, it isn't the second or third time. And it won't be the last. Follow along this week as we recreate these crunchy, squeezy, soft Crescent City donuts that finally brought a father and son together.

    I Actually try using the Box and what I did was I put more of the mix in with the dough after i did the steps so It can be more puffier and it did. Burned my finger at the process, but it was worth it!

  • edelricandkidmikk
    edelricandkidmikk 23 days ago

    I want to make these sooooo bad, but the one and only time I had beignets (at cafe du monde, actually!) I got severely ill from them for like 2 days. It wasn’t food poisoning, just something either in them or maybe the abundance of oil used for cooking just really didn’t sit with me. The same thing happens with funnel cakes which are a bit similar, so clearly the universe just decided to deny me the pleasures of fried dough doused in powdered sugar. 😭😭😭
    Maybe I’ll make them for my sister for her birthday or something as she has no such problems and would appreciate them more than I can. 😄👍🏻

    The box ones were flat because you’re supposed to let the dough rise for about 10-15 minutes. They used to have that step on the box.

      @Tristen MacArthur i see, i hope you're right. ive just had too many experiences with people targetting her/other POC liberal women in the government as "harmless" jokes and then turn out to not be friendly at all

    • Tristen MacArthur
      Tristen MacArthur 27 days ago

      I see where you're coming from, but if you think about it, it's pretty innocent. He's just saying that AOC is very liberal, and she is. For all we know, it could be a compliment from his perspective, just like the one about Scrooge was. This, coming from someone who's pretty damn left-wing. :)

    Cafe Du Monde’s beignets are so good! Definitely worth the (short) wait despite the length of the line. If you’re ever in New Orleans definitely check them out. Pretty sure they’re open 24 hours

    love the videos but stay out of politics(jokes or anything), as a word of advice. Many TheXvidrs have lost their platform due to sharing their politics on their channels. Plus it takes away from your shinning point, the cooking.
