Beginners Guide To Cooking – Learn The Basics

There are a ton of videos out there that teach you, in a short amount of time, how to do one or two things but when it comes to really learning the basics for someone who doesn’t know anything, it is hard to find proper direction.

For this video I wanted to do something different than our other videos. I have created a long form video to help anyone that doesn’t know much about cooking, or anything at all, get into cooking. Basic techniques or holding a knife, seasoning food, cutting vegetables, marinating meat, making sauces, plating dishes, and so forth.

The goal is that by watching this video you will come to see that cooking is really quite simple and that it doesn’t take much effort at all, just some time, some love, and some fun.

Please feel free to share this with anyone that may be interested, perhaps someone that has always wanted to cook but never thought they could. Remember cooking is easy and if you put in the time it will be an extremely rewarding experience.

  1. Aren’t you supposed to start cooking the steak only when it’s been out of the refrigerator for a while so that it’s room temp? Otherwise It won’t cook evenly enough

  2. I like your approach man..good to see young people get into cooking. And I like how you keep it basic yet open ended. It shows people they can mix and match to learn their OWN recipes…instead of following someones recipe down to the exact T.

  3. Yesterday when I found this video I went straight to Amazon and bought the tools he used in this video so I could start cooking today. This video was incredbly motivating, informative, laid back, and even funny at some points thanks to this guy's amazing personality. When the cooking tools arrived today I went to the kitchen (That is conveniently in my living room) and put this video on the TV. I was amazed of how well my finished product turned out and how surprisingly easy it was to follow the instructions of the video and get more confident as I went along. It is times like these where I wish YouTube would let you post pictures in the comments section, because I think this guy deserves to see how well the video worked for beginners who could post him their finished product. Thank you very much for taking the time to make this video. It has helped me a lot, and I feel way more confident in making a meal now than I did before.

  4. Fantastic Piece! Up here at Y&S FOOD! we admire to get this in our feeds. We make Travel & Food series and we are now consistently looking into latest inputs as well as options. Thank you!

  5. Do yourself a favor and don't watch this video. After having virtually no cooking knowledge I watched this video and am now a great cook, but now people are constantly visiting my house for dinner, my other bros keep begging me to teach classes, and my girlfriend proposed to me twice. Thanks a lot.

  6. Woah! I never knew you could just put a paper towel in the pan when it’s extremely hot like that and it wouldn’t immediately engulf it in flames ? that blew my mind hahah

  7. as a real novice, i usually cook stuff in a frying pan and then add the various things to the final pot.   am i making a huge mistake?     does the food taste better when cooked in the same pan/pot one after the other or does it not matter?     thanks.    (ps i love your videos.    very down to earth and very helpful.)
