Whether you never learned, never liked it, or are stuck on a college diet, it might be time to upgrade those cooking skills. No one’s asking you to become a pro by next week, but we could all become inspired by new ideas and recipes to expand on a balanced diet. That’s the best part of the internet, right? It’s full of information, but it’s a lot to navigate. That’s where I come in–I’ve found the perfect way to master the kitchen.
These are all YouTube channels that I’ve used myself. You can either read the description for ingredients and equipment required, or watch the video beforehand. Once you’re prepped, you just follow right along. It’s like a virtual cooking class, except it’s free. It doesn’t get much better than that. One way to make cooking funner is to have your significant other, friend, or family member cook alongside you, and have a competition for the best dish!
The Best Cooking Channels
- Binging with Babish: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJHA_jMfCvEnv-3kRjTCQXw
- The best thing about Babish is that he has created so many playlist to fit whatever your dietary needs or preferences may be. He even has a playlist of videos specifically made for beginners (I’ve spent a lot of time watching these myself). He also has a playlist where he creates meals from your favorite TV shows which are so fun to try out!
- The Stay At Home Chef Reciepes: https://www.youtube.com/c/Thestayathomechef/featured
- Another amazingggg channel! She’s got it all. Similar to Babish, she has so many playlists available where you can find tons of new receipes to try, or give an old recipe a new twist! My personal favorite is her “appetizers, snacks, and finger foods” playlist — I mean, who doesn’t love appetizers to snack on all day long?!
- Joy of Baking: https://www.youtube.com/c/joyofbaking/featured
- Calling all my friends with a sweet tooth!! This one’s for you! She’s got tailored playlists for every holiday, event, meal, and random craving! If you’re ready to impress your friends and family, you should definitely try our some receipes.
Good luck on your cooking and baking adventures! It may take a few try’s to get it right, but it’s all about improving at the end of day.
