About six months ago, I discovered a YouTube channel called Eater. And I never, ever miss it. This was on the cusp of me becoming a Serious YouTube Subscriber as opposed to just watching crap at random, particularly at either Devour.com or The Twisted Sifter. (Nothing and I mean NOTHING beats the Shirk Report. I set aside at least an hour on Fridays for it. I'm warning you: old Shirk Reports are almost as bad of an internet rabbit hole as Cakewrecks.com and Engrish.com).
When I realized that I could get intelligent, world-opening food coverage from Ye Olde Internets, I was hooked. Here's the original Eater vid--and I highly recommend that you subscribe, they are always intelligent and enlightening. (Except for that one from Memphis on BBQ--it was not worthy. Read comments section).
I am dying to try the underwater salt. I think I will put them on my "write and beg for ingredients for burgeoning going-to-be-tremendously-popular food blog." Cause that just fascinates the heck out of me. I wouldn't mind spending a day learning from them and just slogging away at it.
Anyway, after I discovered Eater, I happened upon a channel that had a gadzillion (read: million) subscribers called MUNCHIES. Since the first video I saw of them only featured pizza, I figured it was about... you know, weed-type munchies. But no. Munchies is a serious food channel, traveling the world. It is just about as classy as Eater, which is hard to do, especially with the likes of Lucas Peterson whom I think is just the classiest dude eating cheap food ever. Here he is on his tour of Austin in his Dining on a Dime Series.
ANYWAY this leads us to my latest FoodTube discover: Matty Matheson. He is hands down the most profane food experience on YouTube. I really like, though, how he cooks in this tiny kitchen, makes no apologies, and by his own admission, doesn't like to eat his own food. (He also owns 200 pairs of sneakers and never wears a watch, because he "doesn't like people to know how rich or poor I am." This is stupid, cause, Matty darling, they can always look down and see how much you pay for shoes.
Anyway. Love him. Here he is explaining FRIED CHICKEN. I say FRIED CHICKEN cause Matty, my friends, COOKS IN ALL CAPS. Which is a lesson for us all. Sometimes, we need food to be a whisper, a gentle comfort experience. But sometimes YOU NEED FRIED CHICKEN IN ALL CAPS. Enjoy.
