The show F.R.I.E.N.D.S is all about friendship and has definitely left an impact on all our hearts. It is one of the most-watched series of all time and is almost always trending on Netflix. Whether you are a foodie like Joey or just like Monica whose passion is cooking, here are some food items from the show which one just cannot miss.
Episode: The one with a dozen Lasagnas
Every time we see Joey finish the entire lasagna by himself, we have a yearning for it. If you enjoy Italian cuisine, you must try this tiered pasta dish.
Episode: The one with Ross’ Sandwich
Monica Geller’s leftover turkey sandwich for her brother Ross is one of the sitcom’s most renowned dishes. Listening to Ross exclaim, “That sandwich was the only wonderful thing in my life,” we can’t help but identify.
Episode: The one with Ross’s wedding
If you’re a die-hard follower of the show, you’ve probably guessed what Joey’s Special is by now. The legendary Joey Special is two pizzas that serve six people, or one Joey Tribbiani. So, the next time you crave pizza, remember to get Joey’s Special.
Episode: The one with all the Cheesecakes
Cheesecake has never looked more appealing than when Rachel and Chandler couldn’t stop eating it off the floor. Do you have a sweet tooth after binge-watching the show? Get yourself a slice of cheesecake!
Episode: The one where Rachel quits
As Central Perk cafe was their favourite hangout area, coffee has played a crucial role in practically every second episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. The episode ‘The one where Rachel quits’ is notable because Rachel serves coffee for the final time before quitting her job.
Episode: The one with the birth mother
Joey is not to fault for taking his date’s chocolate cake. It’s Joey and chocolate cake, after all! How can anyone trust him to keep their food safe, especially a chocolate cake that looks so good? It’s enough to make us want cake just seeing him eat it all by himself.
Episode: The One With The List
From a modest role in a Friends episode to one that dominates, mockolate has become one of the most memorable pieces of food from the programme, thanks to Monica getting a job where she makes recipes for a cuisine utilising a false chocolate substitute called mockolate.
Despite the fact that it looks like chocolate and is marketed as “better than chocolate,” the flavour is nothing like it, with everyone who tries it declaring it to be dreadful, with both Rachel and Phoebe despising the dish, with Phoebe noting “this is what evil must taste like.” Monica eventually escapes the job, albeit she nearly ends up with another horrifying culinary task of ‘Fishtachios,’ which is never properly explored within the show, unfortunately.
Episode: The One with Phoebe’s Cookies
Friends used a branded food item to create a fantastic prank on the programme with Phoebe and her family’s very confidential cookie recipe, which she claims has been passed down through numerous generations of her family.
Episode: The One with All the Candy
Candy is something that everyone may enjoy, therefore it’s no surprise that it’s mentioned in Friends. Monica creates her own and generously leaves it on her apartment door for others to try for free. However, this sweet becomes so famous that she becomes overburdened and orders become far too frequent for her. While it causes Monica worry, it also helps to make it memorable since spectators wonder what it tastes like.
Episode: Rachel’s English Trifle
Monica is the group’s skilled chef, but that doesn’t stop the rest of the gang from attempting to cook on occasion, with Rachel even getting involved in the cooking mix in “The One Where Ross Got High.” This occurs during Monica’s Thanksgiving dinner in Friends season six. She lets Rachel cook the dessert, but the pages of the cookbook become stuck together, causing her to make a meal that is half a trifle and half a shepherd’s pie. This leads to an extremely amusing scene in which the group eats the dessert, not wanting to hurt her feelings as they chew through the meat and trifle, resulting in Ross comically informing Joey that it, “tastes like feet.”
