12 popular YouTube cooking channels by Malaysian

Which are the top cooking video channels in Malaysia? With Malay, Chinese, variety of recipe combined, here are the most subscribed YouTube cooking channels!

Before the digital era, recipe book is the main source to get cooking inspirations. Well, it still is until today. Cooking shows on TV have also nurtured celebrity chefs, with Chef Wan among many, shot to fame via the TV programmes.

The TV shows have since evolved a bit, with reality cooking shows like MasterChef are becoming the audience's favourite on both satellite TV and OTT such as Netflix.

As opposed to TV, online media platforms like YouTube has enabled many to produce recipe videos from amateur to professional standards. Just perform a search on YouTube and there is hardly a recipe you couldn't find.

Cooking channels like Tasty and Tastemade are gaining huge eyeballs globally in recent years, so which are the top cooking video channels in Malaysia? Let's find out!

Top YouTube cooking channels in Malaysia

Here's how we shortlist and rank the cooking channels:

  • Rank by YouTube subscribers (with minimum 25K subscribers), other social media's reach is not considered here.
  • YouTube channel location set as Malaysia, or proof that Malaysian is behind the channel.
  • The channel's audience might not be predominantly local as some channel operators are based in overseas.
