Want to learn how to cook like a professional chef but don’t have the time or money to dedicate to cooking classes? Well, fortunately for you, YouTube exists, and there’s hundreds upon hundreds of videos out there that’ll teach you how to make anything from scrambled eggs to beef wellington.
One of the most popular channels for such home cooks is Bon Appétit, named after its decades-old magazine. With its hundreds of videos, viewers can start searing, sautéing or simply salivating to their heart’s content.
From steaks to curry to a no-bake cake, Bon Appétit offers countless helpful videos to teach its viewers a variety of food-related things—and not just how to cook or bake. Many videos help viewers understand how to make things from scratch, how to properly identify good-quality ingredients and what working in various restaurants really looks like. Other videos explain how to compost, and still others still simply engage chefs in fun experiments, such as recreating fast-food burgers or cooking potatoes in a variety of unconventional ways.
Because the channel deals in all things food-and-drink related, various alcohols will be referenced or tasted. A series deals with understanding everything there is to know about wine.
The various people interviewed will swear, though all heavier swears are censored. Milder swears, like “a–” and “d–n,” are not censored. God’s name is also occasionally inappropriately used. A few videos will ask celebrities to try to keep up with a professional chef. Some celebrities we noticed in these segments include a drag queen and an actor from Queer Eye.
Bon Appétit provides viewers with all forms of helpful and entertaining content related to food and drink. Some instances of mild foul language sully the table, but the channel remains relatively clean.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, my stomach is growling, and Bon Appétit has a recipe for grilled hot wings.
Though he was born in Kansas, Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics and hermeneutics. His favorite movie is La La Land.
