Internet (YouTube) food channels.

Recommended Posts

So, quite a lot of my viewing time these days is made up of watching food tv. 

 

I love Aussie Masterchef and we’ve watched most of Chefs Table. But there’s nothing quite like watching 5-10 minute recipes and taking ideas or making the decision to cook something. 

 

Recently I’ve watched Binging with Babish but I’m really enamoured with Food Wishes. 

 

Last night I made Peposo and it was absolutely delicious. 

 

 

Anyway. Who else is worth watching? What’s your favourite?

I love Food Wishes too. Chef John's cadence is hypnotic.

 

I quite like Alton Brown, from a long running US TV show called Good Eats. He has his own YouTube channel:

I nearly made this thread the other day.

 

Alton Brown eating peanut butter is the most hideous video I think I've ever seen on youtube and should be taken down for crimes of talking and eating at the same time, it makes me nauseous and I still feel a bad reaction just seeing a link to it, despite having first seen it ages ago.

 

My current obsession is Food Ranger - he's a bit odd but the places he goes and things he shows make it a great watch.

I love the Food ranger, he should be really irritating with his squeeky accent and all the "oooh" and "awww" but he's just so genuinely excited by food (and life in general) that it becomes endearing instead.

 

This guys' videos are food porn:

For just entertainment food related channels - First We Feast for the hot wings interviews.  HellthyJunkFood when they recreate daft fast food items. Barbecue Pit Boys for rednecks making insane barbecue recipes. Matt Stonie, Randy Santel and Yuka Kinoshita for their ability to destroy large amounts of food. I like the Buzzfeed series Worth It where the three guys go and eat the same thing at three different price points. 

 

For actual recipes Matty Matheson on Munchies and Food Busker are awesome.

I really like food busker too, and hate myself for enjoy the buzz feed worth it series.

 

Action Bronson's fuck that's delicious is always worth a watch too, if you like seeing a stoned fat bloke get food stuck in his beard, often in a high end fine dinging establishment.

BBQ is my other main youtube food obsession - a lot of people have heard of BBQ Pit Boys but I've found they've really run out of steam recently and aren't by any means must watch any more.

 

My fave is Malcolm Reed's How to BBQ Right, followed by All Things BBQ & Kamado Joe

 

I really like Food Busker too, he often cooks really tasty looking stuff and keeps the videos short and to the point.

Is Food Wishes the guy that has that halting, high-pitched way of speaking? It is strangely hypnotic.

 

Yeah, Chef John, he's fab. 

 

I like SortedFood. There's one guy (Ben I think) is a proper chef so anything he does is worth watching, the other 3 a generic YouTube blokes who manage to be not too annoying. 

 

You Suck At Cooking is good for a laugh.

Almazan Kitchen because it's just restful cooking up (with no talking) some epic looking stuff in the middle of a damn forest, as you do

 

I used to love watching Auntie Fee too but she died earlier this year.It was just dumb good cooking

This is the best paella I've ever eaten let alone made myself

 

 

This other dish of his was pretty good too, my Mum absolutely loved it.

 

 

I love watching Gennaro Contaldo's videos as he's just so passionate and simple about food. I haven't tried this particular dish yet but the moment I spot some fresh baby octopus's I will.

 

 

I recently found Brothers Eat Green who are really good for basic cooking techniques, budgeting and meal planning.

New one to me this, discovered her via a recent Bon Appetit video where she was name checked as they tried to recreate one of her dishes in a blind test.

 

Always a good sign when you watch these things literally salivating at the concept of super crunchy hot/sweet chicken at 7am in the morning - her recipes look sound and love the way she presents them.

Yeah she's quite eccentric, but her recipes are legit.

 

I also like Seonkyoung Longest for Asian recipes/ideas.

 

 

And Adam Liaw from Australian Masterchef is a bit of a legend. He's just got such a calm demeanour, but he really knows his stuff and the videos he puts out are very professional:
