Andrew Rea & Binging with Babish (at SECCA)
Bookmarks is excited to host Andrew Rea for his newly released cookbook, Binging with Babish, based on his wildly popular YouTube show. Rea will be in conversation with Winston-Salem Journal Food Editor, Michael Hastings at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA).
Rea's 5 million subscribers consistently come back to his videos for more than just the joy of watching a fiction food come into reality: Andrew Rea knows how to tell a story. Fans are obsessed with Binging with Babish, and Rea's new cookbook is the official, must-have companion book.
Andrew Rea never set out to star in a cooking show. Film was his first love, and his intention was always to stay behind the camera. It took nearly fifteen years and an existential crisis for Andrew to put food and film together, but once he did, the real magic started to happen. On his wildly popular YouTube cooking show, Binging with Babish, Andrew Rea combines his love of film and television with his passion for teaching and experimenting in the kitchen to recreate iconic dishes from popular culture.
Have you ever wondered what the Poutine on the Ritz Burger from Bob's Burgers tastes like? The Moistmaker Thanksgiving Sandwich from Friends? Prison Sauce from Goodfellas? Andrew has you covered all the while teaching and framing the show in a way that is accessible to home chefs and foodies around the globe.
Tickets for the 7 p.m. event are $30 (all inclusive) and come with a hardcover copy of Binging with Babish.
Please note the pre-show reception is now sold out. Come early at 6 p.m. and enjoy a pre-show reception featuring recipes from Andrew's new cookbook, prepared by Claire Calvin, owner of The Porch Kitchen & Cantina, Canteen Market & Bistro, and Alma Mexicana. Food tickets with entry and a book as detailed above are $55 and include two wine tickets or $50 for a non-alcoholic drink option.
There will not be a public book signing at this event; all books will be pre-signed by Andrew. If you cannot attend, but would like a signed copy of Binging with Babish, please order below.
