Binging with Babish: Squid Ink Pasta from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure


*Rowdy Jojo behavior* [Clip Source: “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency”] *silverware clatter and a humph* *the tiniest slurp imaginable* *Inquisitive Grunt* *wet chewing* *ブワ* *Gasp of Rapture* *long slurp* BABISH: Heywhazzupguys? Welcome back to “Binging with Babish” where, this week, we’re taking a look at the squid ink spaghetti from “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.” A recipe for which we are gonna need some squid ink. Cuttlefish ink like this is a little bit hard to find but you can order it on Amazon. Dried squid ink pasta like this stuff is available at your friendly neighborhood grocer, but to get the flavor, texture, and appearance we’re after, we need to make our own. And, since my kitchen scale just ran out of batteries, we’re gonna eyeball this: About 2 and 1/2 cups of flour, placed in the bowl of a 『stand』 mixer, make a well in the center and crack in 4 large eggs along with one heaping tablespoon [tbsp] of the jet-black squi- –EUGH–DON’T smell that, that smells really bad. But, don’t worry, it tastes really good: very subtle and brine-y and not the way it smells. (Which is reminiscent of ocean trash.) Go ahead and gently beat that into the flour with a fork until a thick slurry is formed, at which point, we’re gonna affix dough hooks and mix on medium/medium-low speed for 8-10 minutes. Now, since we weren’t able to weigh out our ingredients, after about 5 minutes, we’re gonna check the consistency of the dough, adding flour or water as necessary until a smooth, tacky–not sticky–pasta dough is achieved,
[Take a shot every time Babish says “as necessary”] which we’re going to wrap in plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes up to 1 hour. Now, if you’ve never been on a wedding registry, so you don’t have a 『stand』 mixer, we can still do this by hand. But if you, for example, host a hand-and-table-centric cooking show, you might want to take some steps to protect them, because this stuff does stain. So, I’m starting off the dough the exact same way: in a bowl, but, once a thick slurry is reached, I’m going to dump it out onto my work surface and start coaxing it together into a cohesive mass. If you’re unable to weigh your ingredients, this is the better way to make pasta, because you can just sort of introduce more flour to the party from the tabletop as is necessary. Anyway! Once our pasta dough is done resting, it’s time to start rolling it out. Give it a little poke.

  1. -Dish selected is from one of the two starting parts.
    -Not enough other parts referenced
    -Refers to Joseph as only "Jojo"

    Please read and watch more if you ever can, I can tell it probably doesn't interest you as much as other things, but it would be a treat to see some of the food from other parts.

    But you don't have to ofc, just saying I hope you do.

    I wanna make this abundantly clear, Babish cooks what HE wants and that's totally fine, don't wanna seem like I'm demanding it from you.

  2. My aunt did this back in 2010 when she opened her pasta business.

    DOES THAT MEAN SHE KNEW THE FUCKING FUTURE?!

  3. Babish: *Sees that ink noodle*

    Also Babish: I shall consume this noodles with full pleasure…

    ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA!!!

  4. One time in my baker school we made squid ink bread and one of my classmate ask who want to lick the spoon, I crawl behind him like some creep and take the spoon… Now I am the weird guy

  5. 4:10 that's not JoJo sir. That is his grandpa Joseph. I don't even watch the show and I knew this… And you're the one the did the research

  6. Since you did this one on JOJO you should make Kira's yatsukoba sandwich. Literally killed someone over what was in the bag.

  7. You need to revisit Jojo for Tonio's dishes from Diamond is Unbreakable. Just without the latent side effects of course.

  8. I found this spaghetti in a store today and now i find a video on it
    Coincidence i think not

    The phone already reads my mind

    Edit:the video found me….

  9. So… the logical next step is Tonio’s spaghetti, the meal so good crazy diamond’s pose before punching it became its go-to pose
