Cooking inspiration is only a click away. YouTube hosts video channels run by both professional and self-taught chefs.
Whether you want to make a pot roast or bake some cinnamon buns, there’s a tutorial that will walk you through everything from the ingredients to the preparation to the final sprig of garnish. Here are the best cooking channels to inspire your dreams of becoming a chef.
Chef John’s Food Wishes YouTube channel has something for everyone, whether you’re an experienced cook or are just starting to explore the kitchen. On the more adventurous side, Chef John offers up recipes for items like deviled lobster tails and mille-feuille (a Napoleon pastry). If that sounds a little ambitious, then check out the pumpkin-spice snickerdoodle cookies, classic guacamole, or fresh berry fool (a refreshing summer dessert).
Chef John also delves into some of the seemingly simple, but hard-to-master foods, like soft hard-boiled eggs, refried beans, baked bacon, and North Carolina-style barbecue sauce. It’s easy to get distracted when you’re looking at the many videos offered by Food Wishes. Everything looks delicious and you’re bound to find something new to try out, like Brazilian fish stew or bread stuffed with salami. The videos are entertaining, easy to follow, and come with links to the recipes online so you can print them out and take them into the kitchen with you.
