The Golden Age of YouTube Cooks

I think we’re living in a sort of Digital Golden Age. It’s the idea of living through a really good time in history. Whether that’s a personal golden age or a collective one, we all go through periods of time where something just stands out as exceptional. And at the time, we might take it for granted and not realize how good it really is. It’s often only in retrospect that we realized we went through a golden age.

I think we’re in a golden age of YouTube cooking shows. These are my top picks.
