Recreating Maangchi's Dakbokkeumtang (Spicy Braised Chicken) From Taste | Bon Appétit


  • im so proud of korean food. GUYS WEVE COME TO FAR

  • Denim hotpants.

  • i don’t ask for a lot, i just want spoons, i want spoons everywhere

  • lol the shampoo

  • i don’t understand what he’s thinking by trying to stuff cooked chicken with cooked fruit. it doesn’t add up to me.

  • lil hoty i love asian women

  • The milk was really a curveball. Most Asians are lactose intolerant to some degree.

  • Gaby in the background at 15:18 lol

  • Love Maangchi's reciepies!!

  • Moaarrr of these!

  • Please don't eat shampoo.

  • Hands down to this man. He is amazing!

  • chris gagging and sassy backtalking to..... a camera.... is a joy to watch

  • 16:42 I'm obsessed with Chris. XD

  • "See how like when you get inside there it gives you layers upon layers"......the innuendo laced quotes are aplenty in this one.

  • "See how like when you get inside there it gives you layers upon layers"......the innuendo laced quotes are aplenty in this one.

  • BA has quickly become my all-time favorite FR-tv channel

  • I feel exactly the same way about spoons as Chris does.

  • Now give him a bowl of the remnants of the test kitchen's sink disposal. "It's's funky...its almost like kimchi...definitely some aged meat."

  • chris morocco is a real-life lucy fuji

  • 8:30

  • I love chris sm

  • Ahhhh! I love these episodes!!! Chris is absolutely amazing

  • he needs to make some indian dish!!

  • 16:25 I love how Christina went full-on grandmaster "The answer is in you" and it made Chris go whole flat-earther conspiracy guy crazy.

  • Dish: *obviously Asian stew* Chris: "I T 's a R a M P"

  • You can tell Chris does mostly western style cooking. Scallions and soy sauce are staples for asian cooking, as is incorporating all the ingredients into a sauce without any prep. They all get soaked and cooked together.

  • 15:18 the slow closeup paired up with chris' blindfold and his pacing while talking so seriously is just so precious

  • I want HIM as a friend

  • 16:39 “What did that mean?” LOL!

  • wait do americans not rinse off meat before they cook it?

    • No one should, unless your goal is to splash bacteria everywhere.

  • 28:23 Chris has definitely worked as a car salesman.

  • Too many weebs in the comments and he pretty much nailed it so. I'm confused with the criticisms!

  • 16:39 😭😭😭

  • *chris:* yeah i feel pretty good about the asian pear *me:* chris i am literally begging you to stop

  • WoW 👌

  • the man thinks too much. makes for good content though XD

  • Christina is pure death by snu snu material.

  • OMG I didn't realize Chris had his own fun concept show as well!!

  • Chris is amazing!

  • How does he know without a doubt that it's Gochujang and Gochugaru, but never considers raw chicken, milk and apple? His sense of taste and knowledge of recipes is seriously impressive though

  • This is so oddly compelling...

  • Dear BA, I need more Chris Morocco content to consume. Please’ and thank-you’s.

  • the whole recipe he thought the red leister was the ramps, but really.... it was the apples

  • Me, a spoonie: 17:37

  • Everyone in the BA kitchen is so hot and sassy.

  • what is that jazz in the background?

  • I would categorise this dish as "but why?"

  • *”you can do things with a glove on that you wouldn’t do otherwise”* -Chris Morocco, 2019

  • 8:28 Legit carried shampoo around all day... impressive.

  • Chris: gets 85% of the ingredients correct Also Chris: RAMPS

  • Always ALWAYS wash your chicken people

  • I love Chris Morocco so much.

  • asian cooking = one pot solution dump everything in water and let time does its magic


  • Did we just see Vinny??? Like, did that happen?? 6:35


    • For anyone wondering - i got the Hope World ad (Daydream), not gonna lie, i was jamming the pickle out.

  • This dudes taste pallet is seriously ridiculous. He is very good at these challenges. I'm a fan dude.

  • GREAT series. more of this. Im constantly surprised at how close these chefs come, even if they dont nail it.

  • His platter is amazing.
