8. Maangchi’s Korean Cooking Show
Unless you or your family is from the region, a foray into Korean cuisine might earn you a check in the “food adventures” column. Those looking to earn that badge should check out Maangchi’s Korean Cooking Show, where the delightful chef will show you the ropes from her home kitchen in New York.
The series takes the traditional cooking show approach and adds a pinch of fun textual commentary with each step (you’ll see what I mean in the video below). You’ll also get a lesson in Korean pronunciation as you prepare steak, squid, bean jelly, and other delicacies. 23,000 subscribers can’t be wrong!
9. Cooking Sessions with Jason Hill
In addition to specific recipes, Chef Jason Hill sends good foodie and cooking advice your way via YouTube. Production-wise, it has a traditional style, but runs the gamut on subject matter. Whether you’re looking for a great new “Southwest Sauce” recipe, or the low-down on the best bamboo cutting boards, there’s always something worthwhile in store on this channel. 12,000 subscribers follow Jason as he travels the country, enjoys the local cuisines, and brings it all back to his home kitchen.
10. Hungry Nation
Last, but certainly not least, Hungry Nation is a great YouTube channel with a lot of content diversity. Their website is essentially a hub for four distinct food shows: Working Class Foodies, featuring a brother and sister team who strive to make great meals that are under $8.00; VendrTV, whose host travels the country in search of the best “curbside cuisine,” 12 Second Cocktails, which offers a quick video shot of mixed drink recipes; and a more traditional but homegrown cooking show from television and film director Tamra Davis. The website touts that none of the on-screen personalities are professional chefs or restaurant critics. They’re “just real people with a real love for food.”
A channel subscription will bring all of the weekly episodes to your YouTube homepage, but the website can also be a great resource for finding the content you’re looking for, or simply browsing through some fun, foodie adventures.
