As the world locks down, supermarket shelves are stripped, restaurants are forced to close, and home delivery services such as Postmates and Deliveroo become stretched, it’s increasingly infeasible to weather the coronavirus storm in isolation without picking up some rudimentary cooking skills.

Thankfully, YouTube is there. Average daily views on videos with “cook with me” in the title have more than doubled since March 15, compared with their average views previously, according to YouTube. In the past year, cooking videos have been viewed more than 20 billion times, say Tubular Labs, an analytics agency. Whether you’re a novice new to tongs or comfortable with a mandolin (watch those fingers!), these are the channels to watch.
