Cook-along-side these YouTubers

By BaxterStorey 05 Dec 2023

Learning to cook doesn't have to be difficult.

These days, you can access tutorials on almost anything in minutes...including cooking how-to's. YouTube is an old-reliable when it comes to tutorial-style videos. Not only are they easy to follow but they can cater to a range of different tastes, cuisines and skill levels.

To help you get started, we've listed some of the best cook-a-long channels that'll have you feeling like the Gordon Ramsey of your flat in no time: 


Delivering exactly what it says on the tin, this channel is a hub of super simple step-by-step videos. Not only does this account cover all of the basics from how to cut a pineapple to how to make poached eggs, it also has separate playlists for each meal of the day so you can find breakfast or dinner meals quickly. 

Bon Appetit

One of the more well-known channels, Bon Appetit has so much engaging content from Paul Hollywood trying American snacks to Paris Hilton making Jam. We'd highly recommend checking out their Test Kitchen playlist which covers delicious recipes from around the world, delicious desserts and what to do with leftovers. 

With regularly updated content, you'll not struggle to find a new recipe to follow after subscribing to this channel. 


A dedicated vegan channel, BOSHTV shows you just how exciting vegetables can be. As a student, we know finding the time to cook can be difficult - which is why you should try one of these speedy recipes or scroll through their handy YouTube shorts, so you can make time for yourself while satisfying your cravings. 

Binging with Babish

Start from scratch by watching Basics with Babish or bring food from your favourite movies, TV shows and video games to life (if you're an anime fan, you'll love Anime with Alvin). So you can join in the fun and learn on the go, Babish has also saved all of his live cook-a-longs that you can watch back. 


You won't be hungry for more content here. With so many series to choose from included in this channel - from Healthy AF to the best hacks - you won't struggle to find whatever you're craving. 

Don't forget to check out our recipes too!
