Cooking Videos You Like?
Once upon a time, I watched a lot of cooking TV shows. Everything from Good Eats to Iron Chef. They were fun, I learned a lot, and I spent a lot on cable TV.
I dropped cable years ago, and with it my cooking show habit. There’s always YouTube, you say? Well yes, but there are so many distractions on YouTube. Small Boats in Heavy Weather! Adorbs Puppies Meeting Adorbs Kittens! World War 2 In Color! How To Replace A Water Heater! Unlike TV where there was a shortage of anything to watch on those 200 channels, on YouTube I get waylaid before ever getting to the cooking.
So, help me out. What are your favorite YouTube channels for cooking?
I’m watching J. Kenji Lopez-Alt’s channel now. He’s got a fantastic website in Serious Eats, has written The Food Lab, is a food guru in my eyes. And I love that his videos are shot in his tiny, messy, cluttered, not over clean apartment kitchen in South San Francisco, with GoPro cameras on selfie sticks attached to his wok handle. So low budget, so unpretentious.
