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

The TV shows have since evolved, 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 have 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.

Online cooking channels like Tasty and Tastemade are gaining huge eyeballs globally in recent years, so which are the popular ones by Malaysians?

Here's how we shortlist and rank the cooking channels:
  • Videos focusing on food preparation, be it cooking or baking recipes, excluding food reviews.
  • Rank by YouTube subscribers (with minimum 100K subscribers), other social media's reach is not considered here.
  • YouTube channel location set as Malaysia, or proof that Malaysian is behind the channel.
Guess what? 7 out of 16, which means almost half of the listed YouTube channels here were started in 2016!

Why 2016? Were they inspired and motivated by the success of Buzzfeed's Tasty back then?
