I get the feeling I am going to enjoy the Pretty Good Cooking channel, he's just bad enough to feel good about myself (Beef Burgundy should not look that dry, thin-sauced, and grey) but passionate enough to like.
Edit: watched it, and yep, you can pick his process apart in any number of ways, but it still works and I like the way he doesn't cut through the cooking stages too quickly - relaxing watching.
It's very easy to get sick of Almazan with their smug "best ever" screeching in the titles. It's a shame because their content is pretty interesting, but they're so full of themselves. I remember once when they got caught saying they foraged wild onions that were of a type that did not grow in the wild.
Life of Boris is not purely a cooking channel. He does cook, though. If you want to learn cooking but have no attention span or like cooking and enjoy humor, he has fantastic, fun recipes that are easy to follow and easy to make. Fun to watch, too!
Every once in awhile I will catch up on the kimagure cook channel to see what new bizzare fish he cuts up and makes a recipe out of. If it swims, it gets eaten and washed down with Asahi. It's awesome.
Powerleveling a bit here, but I had the great honor of meeting and chatting with Binging with Babish last night at one of his book signings. Really great guy, and I thanked him for being the primary inspiration behind my diving headfirst into getting into cooking as a serious hobby. I've always loved food and cooking, but his show, from its educational tid-bits to the brutally sarcastic honesty of his commentary and occasional mistakes showing that its ok to mess up sometimes, really spoke to me and it is what kickstarted my journey to become what I am today. He felt truly touched and gave me a hug in response. I can die happy now.
Other YT chefs I watch and enjoy range from Gordon Ramsay (honestly, I think we all started out watching him at some point), Chef John, Sous Vide Everything, Townsends, Get Curried, and a host of unsung heroes who helped me by having a video at the ready when I needed a particular recipe to tackle and showcase on my food blog.
I'm also keeping my eye on the up and coming Adam Ragusea, as the edutainment format of his recipe videos really comes off as a successor series to Good Eats as someone above has already mentioned, not to mention his recent post of healthy diet food has become my go to for making quick and easy meals at home in hopes that I will one day become slightly less of a fat fuck than I am right now.
