The One With All The Food: 10 Dishes We Want To Try From ‘FRIENDS’

In honor of the FRIENDS reunion this weekend, here are our favorite treats from the show

I love FRIENDS. Actually, scratch that. To say that I love the show is an understatement. What do you call it when you’ve memorized nearly every episode and still laugh at the scenes when you rewatch it for the thousandth time? Please tell me it’s not called insanity. 


So when the news of a FRIENDS reunion became official, I was beyond ecstatic even if I had no idea what to expect. I just wanted to see Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Ross back together. So, in celebration of “The One We’ve All Been Waiting For”, here’s a list of the 10 best food items (and moments) from FRIENDS in case anyone wants to make their own version or have the next best thing delivered to their doorstep. And no, we won’t be including the “Manipulative Shrew” from “The One With Phoebe’s Birthday Dinner” (Season 9, Episode 5).  Sorry to disappoint you.



FRIENDS is studded with tons of awesome food content and hilarious food moments like every Thanksgiving episode, Monica’s jam from the third season, Monica’s bouillabaisse and Joey’s star-winning cookie from “The One With The Cooking Class”, Chandler’s “Chanberry” sauce, Joey’s “peanut butter fingers”, five steaks and and an eggplant for Phoebe, Monica’s “brown beef smileys” or tacos, and even Ross’ fajitas from season 9. When you rewatch all ten seasons, you’ll realize how food plays a huge role in one of the greatest comedies in TV history.
