A Determined Man Makes Every Element of a Chicken Sandwich From Scratch Over the Course of Six Months

Andy George, host of the video series “How To Make Everything”, spent the last six months and $1,500 of his hard earned money to make every single element of a chicken sandwich from scratch. By doing so, George was making a statement about the things we take for granted everyday.

I spent 6 months and $1500 to completely make a sandwich from scratch. Including growing my own vegetables, making my own salt from ocean water, milking a cow to make cheese, grinding my own flour from wheat, collecting my own honey, and killing a chicken myself.

My quest does not just cover food. In my new video series, I set out to challenge myself to make many every day items we take for granted from scratch.

After all that, the sandwich was dejectedly declared “not bad”.

George also took on the task of crafting a suit from scratch

Andy takes on the task of making a suit from scratch….REALLY from scratch. He harvests all the materials he needs and then learns how to convert the raw materials into useable fabrics for his suit.
