Today’s digital age makes it easy to have access to cooking information at, literally, our fingertips. Traditionally, recipes are found in books or in mom’s notebooks probably passed to her by friends or her mom. As these are usually in the step by step format, more visual procedures are available from video recipes. Popular internet sites like YouTube or searching sites via search engines can direct you to various recipes to fill in your needs.
Made not just by culinary experts, food aficionados also share their favorite recipes and post them online in sites like YouTube or their personal blogs. People all over the world may now be able to search for them and probably pick up a few tips. This is easy to follow for some people as they could actually see how a dish is being done, from food preparations to methodology. Shopping suggestions are also given, sometimes even directing to the site of the store where the ingredients were bought. Substitutes for certain ingredients may also be given, especially if some ingredients aren’t available locally or if a certain diet is being followed, like a healthier version. On a more personal note, the person doing the demonstration would sometimes give a few insider tips.
Since home videos are made for personal cooking, especially for those starting to learn how to cook or for those living on their own, some people find homemade video recipes more relatable. Sometimes, the more helpful videos trending on the Internet aren’t made using heavy equipment or hired professionals to do online editing. They may be made using personal webcams and edited at home desktops using easy movie editing software and a few tweaks done (these tweaks may be even learned from Internet tutorials as well). Some of the recipes created from these videos may be an “accidental” creation from the subject’s personal cooking experiences. As some people say, teaching can be learning as well.
Creating recipe videos is a dynamic process. The one watching can learn a thing or two from the clip. It may inspire him or her to create a recipe video too in the long run, sharing knowledge learned. This is an awesome way also to learn cooking without going to culinary school or taking workshops. The Internet is a free source of education, so it’s best to maximize it. Just learn, get to the kitchen, and have fun.
