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 prepares a real-life version of Tom’s three-day potato salad from Nickelodeon’s long-running animated series, SpongeBob SquarePants.
“It’s rare that a minor detail in a long-running series will take on a strange, unintended new life as a meme. Jean-Luc Picard face-palming in Star Trek TNG: Deja Q. Some kid eating tide pods. Oliver Platt’s occasional role on The West Wing. Or, in the case of Spongebob Squarepants, a moment from like every other episode. Follow along this week as we recreate a potato salad recipe courtesy of “Tom”, an ancillary character famous for screaming.”
