As you might expect based on the name, the YouTube channel Babish Culinary Universe (previously Binging with Babish) by Andrew Rea is all about food and cooking, and that often means cooking various odds and ends from pop culture. Take, for example, one of Rea's latest creations: the Chef's Choice Platter from Capcom's Monster Hunter: World. Rea recently recreated the popular meal -- and the end result looks absolutely delicious.

This particular homemade (if you can call Rea's kitchen part of a traditional home) meal includes paella that's inspired by bibimbap, skewers of sausage, steak, and shrimp, mussels, a roasted chicken, and a big chunk of cheese. It's interesting to watch the process in action, especially when Rea notes his success and familiars -- the sausage was dry, unfortunately -- throughout the course of it. Helpfully, Rea has also shared recipes for all the glorious goodies he made. You can check out Rea cooking the monstrous meal above or simply check out his finished handiwork in the photo below:

As for the Monster Hunter gaming franchise, Monster Hunter: World -- from which the Chef's Choice Platter is taken -- is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Additionally, Monster Hunter Rise recently released for the Nintendo Switch and has proven quite popular. Our own review gave the title at 4 out of 5. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the popular video games from Capcom right here.
