In the latest episode of “Binging with Babish,” a cooking series where home chef Andrew Rea recreates famous foods from films and TV shows, Andrew demonstrates how to make homemade versions of Vito Spatafore’s diner Johnny cakes and breakfast sausage from the 8th episode of season 6 of HBO’s hit crime drama series, The Sopranos.
“There’s a wealth of food showcased in HBO’s genre-defining classic The Sopranos, but few (if any) surround a real, actual human romance. That’s right, the short-but-passionate affair between a noticeably thinner Vito and his mystery-fireman-studmuffin Jim “Johnny Cakes”. Labor under the delusion that these star-crossed lovers won’t meet a tragic end as we share in their shared New England indulgence, johnny cakes with housemade sausage.”
