Sawaddee September!

Sawaddee ka reader! Just curious, what are some of your favourite YouTube cooking shows? I have been on YouTube for quite some time, and when I began (in 2009 believe it or not!!) there were just a handful of cooking shows around. Now, there are tons of shows in all sorts of different styles, specializing in just about everything you can imagine. And I'd love to kow which other shows do you guys enjoy watching, and why? Let me know via your favourite social media, or via my contact form on my website here!

I really love being on YouTube because it really puts me in touch with my viewers and fosters a community. Not to mention I see right away the feedback on each video! So I know what kinds of videos people like, what are some common questions that come up, and I can use that information to make better episodes in the future :)
