18th Century Mac & Cheese | Stump Sohla
Babish Culinary Universe
Welcome to Stump Sohla, where we use a big ol' game-show-style wheel to try and stump one of the internet's most talented chefs, Sohla El-Waylly! This week, a comfort food made complicated with no modern tools or stove; just an open fire and some incredible willpower. Will Sohla get stumped? Well it's the first episode of her new show, so it's thematically unlikely - but enough of that, let's dig into some Revolutionary-War-era mac and cheese!

    How have you never started a fire? Fires are freaking amazing, and nothing beats cooking shit on a beach from deadwood coals. Love you Sohla but you need to start making fires.

    Sohla: People just ate all the cheese they wanted to eat and then they died - Yep, clicking on this was *not* a mistake. Kinda wish I hadn't had the door open when I shriek-laughed, but that's on me.

    Sohla: "Was there Mac & Cheese in the 18th Century?" Me, who knows that Thomas Jefferson loved it so much that he imported it from France in quantities that almost caused a shortage: "Probably, I'm not sure."

    Wow... she's lucky she didn't lose an eye! GREAT accomplishment with the spaetzle on a board -- so ingenious! But I sure hope Babish has good liability insurance.

    Took me awhile to realize, on a unrelated note, that Sohla's apron reminds me of Malaysian's secondary school pinafore. Anyways, great show!

    Ok next episode of Stump Sohla. Sohla makes a gourmet meal.... in a time share hotel kitchen. Terrible saw knives, only four plates, electric burner oven. The works. And on a travel budget. 100 dollars at the local supermarket, and she has to use every ingredient she buys with absolutely minimal waste. What will she make???

  • moffix

    I love sohla

    Wow they really held her back on BA, huh. She's got tons of personality!!

    I feel like Sohla El-Waylly should be called Sohla El-Yaylly. Or maybe Sohla El-WayCool.

    “People just ate all the cheese they want and then they died” is a fair assessment of culinary history.

    Can we talk about how her not being on BA has just... allowed her to truly be herself. She is so funny and so incredibly smart. (Not that she wasn't on BA). But I feel like a lot of it was edited out so we only got brief clips of her showing her talents.

    18th-century people didn't eat off those forks. They ate off the side of dull knives or with big spoons. Just FYI.
