10+ MOUTHWATERING FOOD & COOKING SHOWS ON YOUTUBE THAT WILL KICK-START YOUR APPETITE
Article by Jeremy Kaye
People have been cooking up different types of food shows since the earliest days of television. On TV, the formula is usually the same: it’s either a “chef in a kitchen makes a thing” show, or a “chef competition” show.
On YouTube, there’s a bit more on the menu. There are a fair share of ‘normal’ food shows too, but the internet makes people do some strange things with their food. You may have watched some of the bigger shows that have been around for years like Epic Meal Time, My Drunk Kitchen, or Nerdy Nummies, but if those have become a little stale for you, here are some newer food shows that are just as unique to help satisfy your appetite:
#1 | You Suck at Cooking
The somewhat mysterious creator behind You Suck at Cooking demonstrates some tasty recipes you can make at home, but that’s all a side show compared to the original music, hilarious skits and clever commentary that keeps you laughing while you learn about food.
Assisted by longtime friends Meyhem Lauren and Big Body Bes, Rapper Action Bronson explores some of the hottest food spots in cities he visits during his world tour, in addition to some other activities he participates in like swan diving off from yachts. It's all part of the rapper's goal to demonstrate that life is meant to be enjoyed as much as possible.
Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney write and direct the Katering Show, a food show that makes fun of foodie stereotypes through awkward, Aussie humor. They describe the show as “‘”the journey of a food intolerant and an intolerable foodie”, and even though they may have a hard time making food that you’d find appetizing, both seasons are definitely worth a watch.
#5 | Huang's World
Huang's World is a genre-bending venture into subculture through the lens of food. Raw, wild, and heartfelt, Eddie Huang gets down in the underbellies of cities around the world in search of what's cooking in their back alleys and underground spots. He's hunting rabbits with biker gangs in Oakland, eating seafood and surfing in Taiwan, hitting low-rider BBQs in East LA, and dining on rice and beans with your drug dealer's grandmother in Miami.
#6 | Ras Kitchen
Join Rasta Mokko and Matthew deep in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica for a glimpse into the the true culinary lifestyle of a genuine Rastafari family.Rasta Mokko cooks pure and authentic Rastafari & Ital food in his makeshift outdoor kitchen. Simmered together with patois slang commentary from Mokko and editing by videographer Matthew, Ras Kitchen is a pretty unique viewing experience.
