Since quarantine, I've picked up cooking as a hobby. I still remember back in April, when I was browsing YouTube, I came upon a video by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, where he made a French omelette in under two minutes! I was then inspired to try making one myself, and during my first attempt, I remember failing and making scrambled eggs instead. Since then, I've improved my cooking skills vastly. Thanks to the help of YouTube, I've been able to learn how to cook so I won't have to rely solely on instant ramen when I go to college.
Here are some YouTubers I like to watch for inspiration:
Cacio e pepe, an Italian mac and cheese made with linguine, olive oil, red pepper flakes, and parmigiano reggiano
Spaghetti Bolognese: beef, tomatoes, onions, cream, parmigiano reggiano
A New York strip steak seasoned with salt and pepper, pan-seared and butter basted
Crispy boiled and oven-baked russet potatoes
A quick matcha for a Sunday morning
