Cooking preparation tools and ingredients.

JOHANNESBURG - The holiday season means people have more time on their hands and hopefully more energy to try out something new and creative in the kitchen.

YouTube has a wealth of interesting channels dedicated to making food in different and delightful ways. Even if you don&39;t try all the recipes on these channels, it&39;s entertaining just to watch beautiful dishes being made all around the world.

Moso Gourmet: This channel combines mostly dessert cooking with autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) triggers to relax and entertain. 


How To Cook That: The miniature cooking trend didn&39;t die in 2015 and this channel proves it. Miniature cooking isn&39;t its only appeal as it has some decent recipes for baked goods. 


Travel Thirsty: This channel shows the intricate creation of street food around the world in real-time videos. They show a good range of sweet and savoury dishes that will make you want to pack and go sample the dishes yourself.


Jun&39;s Kitchen: This channel combines the best parts of the internet, food and cats, as Jun prepares dishes to the attentive gaze of his two moggies, Haku and Poki. It&39;s one of the most wholesome, relaxing cooking shows to watch and the recipes are simple enough to follow at home.


Cooking with Dog: This YouTube cooking show is hosted by canine MC Francis and a mysterious Japanese chef whose real name is not disclosed. Over a range of seasons, they&39;ve explored desserts and savoury dishes, mostly from a Japanese food perspective. 


Binging with Babish: Andrew Rea hosts a cooking show dedicated to discovering what the delectable (and occasionally horrible) foods from fiction actually taste like.
