I HAVE been obsessing with two food channels lately on YouTube -- Marion’s Kitchen and Judy Ann’s Kitchen. I may not have my own kitchen but I just love watching their cooking shows.
Each channel has a different personality and strength.
The vibe and feel of Marion’s Kitchen would appeal more to the middle class and upper-class and even foodies. Marion mainly cooks Asian and Asian-inspired food. Most of her dishes feature a variety of spices and herbs available in Asia.
I also love how Marion guides you on how to cook the dishes she is cooking. I love that she does not use heavy culinary jargon when she explains the dishes she is cooking.
When it comes to ingredients, many can be found in our markets or grocery stores here. Some of it can also be found in specialty stores. For example, her Korean ingredients can be found in the Korean marts here.
Judy Ann’s Kitchen
Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo’s YouTube channel will appeal more to the general public. Juday showcases her culinary skills in her cooking show as she whips up a variety of dishes.
What I love about Juday in her videos is that she really knows what she is talking about. I love that she explains to her audience that different culinary jargon and techniques that you do not usually know about. Her videos are very educational and will help home cooks learn a lot of things.
Juday is also very entertaining with her sarcastic remarks and “hugot lines”.
The ingredients she uses are those that you can find in supermarkets or the market. It is easier for home cooks to find the ingredients she uses. I also like that she tends to point out other ingredients to use for a substitute if you do not have what she is using.
Whether you are watching Marion or Juday’s cooking channels, you will surely find recipes here that will impress your friends and families. With the reunions and Noche Buena just weeks away, you will definitely find something to cook from their channels.
