Five Great YouTube Channels


1. How To Cook That


Creator: Ann Reardon
Launched: 16 April 2011
Headquarters: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Followers: 4.1M subscribers
Follow Them On: YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr
Website: https://www.howtocookthat.net

How to Cook That is a website and YouTube channel run by Ann Reardon out of Melbourne Australia that posts online tutorials on how to create, bake and decorate themed cakes, desserts, chocolates and other sweets. How to Cook That began as a website in 2011 and now has over 4.1 million subscribers on YouTube. Reardon runs a really interesting channel. I stumbled across her channel because she posted some videos exposing several fake cooking videos that were circulating online. Reardon proved they were fake by trying to re-create the recipes and demonstrating how the recipes could never work and were sometimes even dangerous. She also posted a video where she attempted a Nailed It challenge herself to see if they were impossible. She also tackles 200-year-old baking recipes and posts "mini" videos where she cooks food with miniature appliances in a tiny doll house. Ann Reardon's channel has loads of entertaining content and her voice is very soothing making it a good child-friendly channel.
