The How to Make Everything channel shows you how to make a chicken sandwich, from scratch. It takes 6 months and it costs $1,500.

Without the convenience of a supply chain, cheap labor, technological advancement, global food networks or even substitutes, it took George 16 steps to complete his meal and cost him a staggering $1,500 – for one simple sandwich.

George grew up in the suburbs, without an abundant amount of knowledge of farm life. He says it was pure curiosity that drew him to this experiment.

“The average person is less involved in the creation of their own food supply. And we do lose something by not having that connection,” he said. “It’s good to make your own garden and keep in touch and be aware of where your food actually comes from.”
