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.

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.

I watch a lot of cooking shows on Youtube and many mentioned here are great fun.

Not Another Cooking Show is excellent, I am deeply in love with Stephen Cusato. He's so freaking sexy.

Home Movies with Alison Roman is great. I don't care what people's beef is with her, I love her.

Chef John...the original!

Dessert Person with Claire Saffitz is a lot of fun, even though you need better skills than I have usually. I love how she explains the recipes.

Preppy Kitchen is addictive. John is so bougie but I love him and his comfy life. He has over two million subscribers, so I imagine his channel brings in some serious cash. He is one of those people who can't make the glottal sound (like Anderson Cooper) so he says "im-por-TENT" instead of "im-por-d'nt" like normal people, which drives me insane!

Gina the Italian Grandmother is a hoot. I love when she sings, it's so sweet it makes me cry.

Although she's been dead for a few years I've watched every video of Great Depression Cooking with Clara. She had such a wonderful manner and her grandson filmed all of her recipes, it's so heartfelt.

My biggest turn offs with many Youtube cooking channels is when they're overly emphatic and manic, and trying way too hard to be "witty" to the point where it's exhausting to watch and makes me cringe. These are mainly millenials.

I'm astonished by how so very many Americans consider this slow-cooker method, Mormon-style "cooking" as worthy of instruction, AND replication. I'm not singling her out for any personal reasons, as I'm sure she'd be a lovely person if you were to meet up with her in any random circumstance.... but this uninspired ungodly pig slop, or chazerai is just completely pathetic, and quite frankly truly nauseating really.

Almost every dish contains a cream of soup, a sachet of dried vinaigrette seasoning, or a boatload of sour cream , and shredded cheddar,... or other ingredients popular with Mormons who think they can cook.

Sorry Mormons, but this is too reminiscent of what my disgusting American Mormon ex would "cook". I'd much rather have a salad, a yoghurt, a snack, a piece of fruit, or a simple sandwich over any of these high sodium concoctions.

John Kirkwood is a retired professional cook. He specialises in sort of British lunchtime cafe dishes of the 20th century. He also makes bread and fresh cheese.

Because he is from the north of England, It’s kind of like being taught to cook by an elderly Emmerdale cast member. I enjoy it a lot, even though he’s a bit overlong and plugs his (actually quite useful) professional cooking implements on his website.

Some of my favorites already mentioned. I'll add: Kitchen Sanctuary, a nice British lady making cozy comfort food.

Least favorite is the Mormons as already mentioned and I'll add Six Sisters and their crap recipes from the back of 1970s packaged food labels.

Thank you to the poster above for the Souped Up Kitchen recommendation. Just watched the video. I make a fair amount of Chinese food but her preparation of the dish in the video was really educational and full of great tips (now I know why some of my food sticks to my wok!)

I love watching Nik fill his gaping maw with bags of food. I love his fat guests. He should invite Christina Metz over. She'd require 10 000 dollars worth of food though. And rolls of toilet paper and a huge crane to lift her about.

I enjoy watching this guy at times. I don't think that anyone knows who he is. Anyway, rarely do his videos go past 5 min. but in that time frame he executes 4-5 different recipes. He never speaks. It is all about editing and the music and making cooking look and feel like art. In fact, I think he ran into copyright issues because of the music that he uses in his videos.

R134 according to his YT community post he's from (in?) Ukraine so probably not super fluent in English hence the lack of narration. Definitely an interesting shooting/editing style.

Another fan of Jamie, the Anti-Chef, as he teaches himself to cook using Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. It's interesting to me because I went through a similar learning process with her books, back before I really knew what I was doing in the kitchen.

Here he makes a simple chicken breast with mushroom sauce and glazed carrots. Does he do everything perfectly? No, which I can appreciate from the perspective of how many years it's been since I was that much of a beginner. But it sure is fun watching him. And yes, he's as cute as can be.

Seonkyong Longest's Asian At Home channel has a funny casual approach to simple recipes. I like her self-deprecating humour like making t-shirts with "nu:ders" poking fun at her pronunciation of noodles.

Bruno Albouze (because he's nice to look at)

If you can get past his looks, he makes some really good stuff. However, you have to love to cook and love the kitchen. His recipes take a lot of work. For example, I'm sure that the hamburger (in the link) is off the charts in regard to deliciousness but how many will commit the time and effort for 5-6 hamburgers?

Frontier Patriot or something? A young 'wife' makes dishes from the late 18th century, using ingridents and gadgets of the day. She's got a chubby, fit/fat kind of cute 'husband' Ron (I have no idea if they are a real couple) who 'live' in a little cabin, with chickens running around outside, and they go to the stream to get water, etc. She cooks over a huge fireplace, with cast iron cookware that looks like it weighs a ton. The meat/potato pies look great, but life expectancy back then had people dying in their 50's.

My favorites.

#1 of all time, may never be topped: Home Movies (Alison Roman)

#2: Dessert Girl (Claire Saffitz - her AR-ness is intoxicating)

#3: Villa Cocina (Rossana - she's always so HAPPY)

#4: Food52 (just SOME personalities though... I love Kristen Maglore and Erin McDowell)

#5: Flo Lum (Flo Lum - I want her as my personal chef)

I watch on occasion Collard Valley Cooks but I wouldn't put it in my Top 5.

r153, I love watching Jamie cook. A million years ago or more, I began to teach myself to cook using Julia's French Chef Cookbook and Mastering the Art. I had no more experience than Jamie has, asked myself a lot of the same questions, and made many of the same mistakes. I'm strangely enjoying watching someone [italic]learn[/italic] to cook, as opposed to watching yet another expert presentation.

r154, Aristede, what is Claire Saffitz's "AR-ness"?

I do not watch cooking channels because the chef is gay, and I want to stick my dick into his Eaton Mess.

I watch cooking channels to make me a better cook.

My favorite Thai restaurant raised the price on all their dishes to $20.

I'm learning how to make Pad Thai and have watched dozens of vids.

My favorite discovery is Hot Thai Kitchen - Pailin's Kitchen @PailinsKitchen

R161 - no one here is really watching TV chefs " because the chef is gay, and I want to stick my dick into his Eaton Mess" (whatever that means). Jamie is popular here because in addition to breaking down JC recipes, he's charming and hot.

Pailin is great. She got me making my own curries from scratch. We rarely if ever go out for Thai. A couple of years ago, she showed up as one of the chefs on Gusto Tv's One World Kitchen. Good chefs but the show is terrible.
