I like Tasting History with Max Miller although it's more about the history than the cooking.

I've seen so many boring cooking channels I tend to just forget them.

Adding: Kitchen Sanctuary (video below), Sam the Cooking Guy, Kenji Lopez Alt, Helen Rennie , Sip and Feast, Charlie Andrews, Divas Can Cook, Natasha's Kitchen.

Least Favorite: channels that are mainly cream of whatever soup casseroles, cool whip desserts and how to doctor up boxed cake mixes.

America's Test Kitchen is one of my favorites, I enjoy watching Julia, Bridget and their guests. Also, the segment with Adam about kitchen gadgets and Jack with his taste tests. I don't miss Christopher Kimball who left to host his own show, Milk Street.

I liked Preppy Kitchen, but now I find it irritating.

Chef John did tone down his weird intonation on his voice. This is petty, but I hate the way he cuts into his food for the bite shot. He takes the time and effort to plate it up nicely. Instead of cutting into something with a knife so you can see a cross-section, he'll just smash the food with the side of a fork.

I do like young, gay David Seymour. I'll never make any of the foods he cooks, but I find it entertaining and I do think he has cooking skills.

Can’t stand preppy kitchen and anti chef. Their presentation and personality don’t work for me. Do love sip and feast for it’s Italian American dishes, chef John, and handsome Max Miller on tasting history. Not being prejudiced, but I also like Ethan Chlebowski. He’s really into exploring the science behind food. Brian Lagerstrom is another favorite. Just for his “Big Ass Salalds” alone he’s worth watching, but his bread recipes are also great.

The Preppy Kitchen and Tasting History guys are both gay -and hot. Sadly, the Anti-Chef is straight, and he's the one who makes my ducky go quack. The glimpses of his hairy chest in the quiche video above make me swoon...

I have this thread on "Watched" because of your suggestions. I'm subscribed to several in English that have already been mentioned (Jamie is hot AF). There are several from Italy that I subscribe to because I'm always looking for a good Italian recipe. This one is interesting. It's a woman from the UK that travels Italy and finds old women who make their own pasta. Unfortunately, I'm currently low-carbing so I only get pasta one every month or two. I give you "Pasta Grannies."

Yes, R71 - I'm subscribed to Pasta Grammar also. They're a lot of fun.

I'm also a fan of John Kirkwood. He makes all manner of English food. He sounds like Winnie the Pooh. Seems like a very nice man.

Yesterday was the first day of the Lunar New Year so I went off my diet and made Chinese for dinner. I was rummaging around the freezer to find some chili I had made and found a container of sauce with meatballs and braciole. I then rationalized eating pasta for dinner since it was a waste to go off for just rice and a few dumplings. Having no pasta on hand but a bag of semola di grano duro, I made cavatelli rigati. It was fucking amazing.

Yeah, I know. I type fat.
