Barista Chandler Graf talks about everything coffee, and why it's one of the world's favorite beverages.

If you caught Babish making the garbage plate, but were curious about its origins, Great Big Story has the scoop — literally. It all started at Nick Tahou Hots in Rochester, New York. Since 1918, they've been putting all the garbage on the plate, and have the trademark to prove it.

Anyone who watches Stranger Things knows Eleven is a sucker for Eggos. Although, when you've pushed her into a psychokinetic rage, it's going to take more than a simple toaster waffle to calm her down. This is why in season two Hopper had to whip up the Triple-Decker Eggo Extravaganza. In this episode of Binging with Babish, Andrew Rea recreates the Redi-whip and Hershey kiss version from the show but also flexes his chef's muscle and makes a restaurant-worthy rendition.
